    I remember Popular Mechanix or Mechanics Illustrated having plans to build a speedboat using the back window out of a C-K coupe.... That had to be in the early '60's... when I was a kid.

      I'd buy that if it weren't for the logistics of getting it here.

      1957 Transtar 1/2ton
      1963 Cruiser
      1960 Larkvertible V8
      1958 Provincial wagon
      1953 Commander coupe
      1957 President two door

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

        I sure wish he would have taken a profile view or a shot of the ID tag on the boat. This is very interesting.

          The Studebaker Boat Company has been discussed here a few times in the past; related to the Studebaker family but not a product of the Studebaker Corporation.

              I believe this is one of those kits.
              Bought from a fellow who said he had the boat since the 60's

              These photos posted on CanadianRodder.com by the buyer asked if anyone could guess what year make & model of car the windshield of this boat was taken from, and I said it was the back window of a '53 to '55 Studie.
              And to the posters surprise, I answered right.

                That's a pretty cool little boat.

                    Hey Biggs,

                    This might be one -and it would be a lot closer. Says Studebaker in the description, but there's no pic...

                      In the first pic you can see the Studebaker script. At least I can...
