  • Stude Corp products?

    I know Studebaker was diversified beyond just auto manufacturing, but just how far? I know they did or at one time owned STP, Gravely (garden tractors, etc) and had military contracts. Weren't they owners or co-owners of McCullough/Paxton until it was sold to the Garlitz brothers? Anything else? What actually happened to Studebaker as a corporation at the final end? Sold off piece by piece, bought out by someone else for it's assets? I'm sure some of you folks out there know!

    They also held Onan (the generator folks) for awhile as well as Clarke Equip. (floor polishers and such). They eventually ended up being absorbed - for the most part - by McGraw - Edison. Some pieces were spun off or further diluted to where what's left is part of the Cooper Group. There's also Studebaker-Worthington - some sort of financial services outift (sorry to be so vague) which is kinda interesting seeing as how Studebaker didn't manage their so well.[V]

    Miscreant adrift in
    the BerStuda Triangle


    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        Here is a page from the 1965 Studebaker annual report listing their businesses at that time.


        When I bought my first computer in 1992, Office America was offering financing through Studebaker Worthington. I think Studebaker Worthington has now been gobbled up by another company, but I can't remember who.

            Studebaker-Worthington is on the Web at http://www.studebaker.com/, believe it or not. And they explain it all in their "Who are we?" page:

            quote:If you're thinking, "Hey, wasn't Studebaker a car they used to make?", you're right.

            We were originally part of a multi-billion-dollar industrial company that used to manufacture the Studebaker car.

            Today, Studebaker-Worthington Leasing Corp. is a wholly owned subsidiary of State Bank of Long Island (Amex symbol STB), a billion-dollar plus commercial bank based in Jericho, NY.

            Ironically, they lease everything but cars

                        I still have my 1978 Studebaker Gravely that I bought new for $2300. That was a lot of money for a rider tractor in '78, but then it still runs strong and I've only had it to the shop once. It earned it's keep for 20 years at the fishing resort we had.

                        They are now owned by Ariens, and the only rider they make is a zero radius mower. I'm also sure they will not last 28 years.

                            There was an extensive article in TURNING WHEELS maybe ten or more years ago. They owned the company that made the device that inserts studs into winter treads, a company that manufactured refrigerated display cases, as well as a small airline.
