  • Studebaker Newspaper and Magazine Advertisements

    Saw this ad and thought it was neat.
    Looked for an existing thread for old magazine ads, but didn't see one.

    As soon as you find a product you like they will stop making it.

      I have an ad framed in my office that uses that same "Boeing" pic.
      It proclaims "Studebaker's New Skyway Series" to be "Excitingly new as the latest transport planes."

      If you google "Boeing 307", you'll find out that they only made a few 307's, and that several ended up with "civilian" airlines in southeast Asia. This particular one crashed and burned in the early/mid 1960's. Another survived Howard Hughes, and lives happily on as a houseboat in (I think) FL!

        There is another 41 Studebaker ad that is similar.

          Both new to me, but I tend to collect post war.

              Supposedly, Brenda Frazier was the Paris Hilton of her time but her later years proved tragic and unhappy for her. Something I read stated she couldn't drive a car but she did appear in this ad for Studebaker

                I have a two-page ad from December 5, 1931 Saturday Evening Post, page 62 & 63 for the Rockne Six. It was shortly after the death of Knute Rockne and is more homage to him than ad for the car; no picture of the car, only a watercolor portrait of the Coach.

                If I ever get a new computer and a good scanner I'll post it.

                    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                    Ayn Rand:
                    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                      A while back my mom found a pile of old magazines at the recycling center (yeah, they live out there... no recycling pick up at their place) so she grabbed them and sent them to me knowing that I'd find them interesting. Would have been a gold mine, except someone had gone through and razor bladed some pages out of them... I was annoyed, because it was really good stuff, one had a comparison road test with an R2 Super Lark as one of the cars; two of them had road tests of new Mustangs (one by Dan Gurney; the other by Mario Andretti) and one had Steve McQueen testing some new motorcycles. But anyway since they're worthless as coffee table decorations I figured I'd save them anyway and whenever I got around to it flip through them and see if there were any cool ads worth framing... did find a first-year GTO ad, and a couple other interesting ones, but the odd thing was... not a single Studebaker ad! these were all circa 1964... guess they really were packing it in at that point.

                          Well... I guess you could say that. She was the Paris Hilton of her day.

                          Between the two in the ad, though, I'd have to say the Land Cruiser aged a little better:

                              I used to have lots of Studebaker ads but sold them to Bondobilly except for the Lark ones. Nate is correct from 1964 to the end there weren't that many ads.
