    That is no coincidence. The redesign of the 1952-55 Willys passenger car line for the South American market was also handled by Brooks Stevens.

      I don't see a lot of resemblance, personally, aside from the instrument panel. But that roofline sure looks Hawk-ish to me

          Is there a translator in the house? I know just a little Spanish, but I think the owner was telling the interviewer, "If you think this is cool, you should see the 1968 Willybaker R5 Tornado I have at home; the last one built with a supercharged Studebaker V-8"
          We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

          Ayn Rand:
          "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

          G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                I think it's actually Brasilian Portugese being spoken; not Spanish. To me Brasilian Portugese sounds like Spanish words spoken by an Italian.

                  For what it's worth, I can 'name that tune'. The song playing near the end of the video was "Money For Nothing" by Dire Straits. As for the car, I don't believe I have ever seen before. Very interesting. As for a Studebaker connection, Studebakers are still being built down there....or at least that is the rumour that I am trying to start.

                    Yup! In AuSTUDEa there are R8 engines lurking in some of the Holdens.They put out about 317 KW,which is a tad more than a well tuned R3 I believe.Took about 45 years to get the extra 25 horses or so. That's progress,BUT the motor has an extra 50 cubic inches.
