  • Looking for any info, ad or pics of Studebaker from Mexico for preserve the History...

    Hello, we are trying to make a book with the history of Studebaker de México ...
    In the 50 Studebaker Corporation expanded its operations among many other countries to Mexico, and operated an assembly plant for cars manufactured in South Bend, which were sent unarmed to Mexico for assembly and marketing ... If you have any information about it and/or Pics or any advertisment, please contact us to expand the little information that exists about it ...
    Any contribution will be greatly appreciated and will have their respective credits in the publication ...
    Thanks in advance.

    I believe there is a photo of the plant in the '100 Years on the Road' publication of the plant in Mexico, as well as 'Studebaker News'

      Thank you, I already checked the post card, but the postage is from Israel (as far as I know Studebaker partnered with the Kaiser-Frazer Plant in Haifa, Israel, and assembled roughly 5,000 vehicles in the Middle East ...), but thanks anyway, it's an interesting photo to save ... I am also looking for the "100 years on the road", thanks for the info...

              Actually Studebaker began assembling cars in Mexico as early as 1939. I have documentation on the plant in my files.
