  • Build a phantom Studebaker

    I am admittedly still a Studebaker novice in the knowledge department but I was thinking that as Studebaker shared many platform components over the years, one could build some pretty interesting, attractive and feasable "customs/phantoms" that are still all Studebaker. Some of that has been done, such as a 52 HT with a bullet nose and 53-54 convertibles.

    Here is one possibility (I apologize for my rudimentary Photoshop skills)... a Studebaker Gnomad...a cross between a 2-door hardtop wagon and sedan delivery... made up of a 54-55 Conestoga with enlarged rear wheel wells to match the front, GT Hawk windows and 56J fins. I suppose a Hawk front end could be added but I couldn't find a pic at the right angle. Of course, crusher-bound donor cars and buckets of cash would be needed, but, hey, we're just pretending.

    So, what other all-Studebaker combinations MIGHT be possible to create "new" models? Group hug and discuss.

        Those rear wheel cutouts look so "right". I like that a lot.

            Interesting concept. I think you may need to Photoshop out the shelf package as I presume this would be a true wagon. You could also experiment with T-Bird portals on the side.

                How about a Weasel Hawk?

                    Sorry, only Studebaker parts allowed. The portholes will have to stay on the T-bird. However, flat glass side windows could be added back there to have a station wagon instead of a delivery-style.

                        How about a rag top GT, the car Studebaker SHOULD have built.

                            OK, how about a 58 GH convertible?
