  • A sad anniversary

    Today, March 17, 2021, marks the 55th anniversary of the completion of the last Studebaker vehicle, a 1966 Studebaker Cruiser four-door sedan. It now resides at the Studebaker National Museum.

    Also, I want to pay tribute to our good friend Stu Chapman, Studebaker of Canada's last sales and promotion manager, who has done so much for the Studebaker Drivers Club Inc., and to preserve the history. of Studebaker.

    I took this picture of the last Studebaker at the Studebaker National Museum on August 2, 2019.

    Thanks for posting this.
    I remember shopping for a new 1966 Daytona Sports Sedan, "only" 55 years ago.
    I have known Stu for most of that time.
