    Here is a photo of a 1924 Studebaker Light Six doodlebug that I owned a number of years ago. It had two transmission and a truck rear end (make and model unknown). I sold it to a club member from North Carolina who has subsequently passed away.

    Wow Brad I am impressed! I had not thought about that show in years. Ann Davis was Schultzy and Rosemary De Camp was Bob's sister. For some reason, to post to the forum with a quote I am getting an error message with the statement must have at least 10 characters to post so I tried this was.

    Not necessarily a doodle bug but I think you will find the Waterman Aerobile which was a flying automobile powered by the Dictator Six rated at 100 hp. Five were made.
    Robert Cummings in "The Bob Cummings Show" had a flying car that towed its wings, but it was a Moult Aerocar.

Not much interest but the wings detached and were pulled in a trailer behind the car on land and attached to the car for flying. This was in 1936-38.

    Studebaker doodlebugs?

    Were there any Studebaker based doodlebugs, ie: home-made tractors based on cars?
