      Studebakers in Australia go way back. Here is a copy of a posting I did on the forum in 2015:

      It was a race in Australia long after the glory days at South Bend. Note one of the drivers!
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1964_S..._International That's right Indy 500 driver Roger Ward.

      Then I found a snippet on You Tube:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZiQ4PJSmyo

      Got to watch it all and you will be surprised at 2:30, 2:50, 3:00

      Talk about rarity, a right hand drive supercharged Studebaker! The Studebaker was not mentioned that much but as you can see, it did hold it's own against a 427 1963 Ford Galaxie.

      I remember seeing this on the old Speed Channel. Hope you enjoy it again. I just wonder if any of our members in Australia might know what happened to the cars.
