  • Car Identification

    Hello New Freinds,
    I am trying to identify the details of a 54 Studebaker from photos i acquired. The car was bought new by my father in 54 in Ohio, driven to Tennessee that year, where he married my mother. I have great interest in the car, not only because I'm a car nut. but because I was born in the car June 27th, 1956. Yea, in the hospital parking lot. They didn't quite make it to the hospital in time.
    I love the design of those models 53-55 especially. Way ahead of their time. So sleek and graceful even after all this time.
    If any of you are can help me determine which of the many model lines it may be, i would be grateful.

        Welcome, David.

        Born in a Studebaker?[:0] This is too much.[]

        Please post photos.

        The procedures are a little complex but not difficult; outlined in the "How to post photos" sticky thread at the top of this page.

        Let us know if you need help.

        Once we've identified it, we'll help you find one. That would be so cool.
