    The problem is not knowing who made Studebaker; it’s not knowing how to use Facebook. When you’re writing a listing it gives you a drop-down menu for ‘Make’. Studebaker is among many others that are not listed. Amazingly, nobody bothers to choose ‘Other’. That gives you a box where you’re can manually type in ‘Studebaker’. Once you do that you can manually type in your model.

    Another common theme- a price that makes no sense, with text in the ad to the effect of ‘Facebook won’t let me post the actual price’. Yet somehow I have never had any problem with it.

    In the end, the issue is either laziness by the poster, or lack of common sense. Or maybe, some degree of each.

    It was never a prototype. It was a timber-framed "mule", or styling study, at least that one in the photos definitely was.

    I can’t believe people have so little to do other than want to correct people about a car that has not been manufactured in over 55 years. Before bashing the seller, did anyone actually check to see if Studebaker was listed as an option for listing?

    I'm seeing the love child of a Ford Excursion and Hummer H2. As for engines, you woulda gotten a choice between the single digit fuel economy Ford V10, or this-engine-will-self destruct-in-30 seconds 6 liter Powerstroke.

    That's crazy talk! They would put a 4-53 GM diesel in it!

    The Prototypes were made by Avanti Motors Corp. NOT Studebaker, and NO Production Units were ever finished or Sold.

    There was a Threat of a lawsuit by GM over their Hummer being too closely copied!

    I remember reading about the Studebaker XUV in an auto magazine years ago. Were any produced beyond the concepts?

    Something posted on Facebook misleading?

    With all the protocols and "fact checkers" they have to make sure no "misinformation" is disseminated?

    Why, I never!

    I'll be disillusioned for the rest of the day... BP

    I have often been asked who made Studebaker. All you can do in response is provide accurate information.

    A Studebaker made by who?

    As we all realize, car postings on facebook are an open sewer of misinformation. Yesterday there was a post showing one and labeled as a "GMC Studebaker." I responded by asking if maybe they meant Ford or Chrysler. Hellllp!
