  • New Studebaker Motors Company?

    Greetings from Virginia Beach. I ran across a link for a couple of guys who hope to revive the marque, including a new Lark, President, Hawk, a hybrid, and more. But the info is dated 2007-2008. Has anyone heard anything further? Sounds like good wishful thinking at least.

    It looks like a personal fantasy. Make believe. Tilting at Windmills. Call it what you may, but its all show and no go.

      It appears that New Studebaker Motors doesn't have a "Human Resources Department", but claims to have a Human Relations link instead. Is this a project of an alien life force? []

        This topic has been discussed many times before. It's either a scam or an ego trip (or both). Here are links to two previous discussions:

          Let's call a spade a spade - it's BS!

                What ever became of the motorcycle company that was using the Studebaker name? I found lots of info online several years ago but never heard any more about them. Steve

                      I dont know, some were definately built. At the time I first read about them I found pics of at least a pair of finished bikes. One was OD green and I think the other was black.
                      If I did this right the link should take you to the website with the engine pics. Just click on the links for the different models on the left side of the page and several will show the same two pics,one of the rocker boxes and one of the controls. Seems to have died out in the R&D phase sometime around 2002. I saved the pics of the completed bikes to a disc I will try to find. Steve http://www.studebakermotorcompany.com/motorcycles.phtml

                        I had an e-mail exchange with the principal about three months ago. He told me the website is maintained by a webmaster, and he doesn't have access to it himself to change anything, but he can tell the webmaster to do so. Seemed like he was still serious about making a go of it, but like you, I wonder if that's for show. He's looking for money...investors, but these are NOT going to be South Bend Studebakers if anything is ever built.

                          I covered this development briefly in my book, "My Father The Car", but nothing ever developed to my knowledge. I believe Skip Lackie and
                          Chris Pile are absolutely correct in their assessments.

                            This always seemed to me to be a couple of guys with a dream, a business plan, one or two hand built prototypes but, no venture capital to see it come to life. It also looks like they haven't given up hope yet.
