        • Great photos in 1535, 36, and 37, Joe; thanks.

          That looks like one hard-working 3/4-tonner in 35 and 37 (probably the same truck, right?) and there are some serious collector cars in 1536! BP
          We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

            My guess is that you are correct. I tried to do a search to find something about the lumber company but "Liberty Lumber" is a fairly common name and so cannot pin things down as to where this is located.

                • General Observation in light of Bruce's #1541 above:

                  These 1950s photos, the earlier the better, testify to why so many people "know about" bullet-nose Studebakers. Studebaker made a half-million of them in two years, so they were literally all over the landscape all during the 1950s, first as new cars and then as second cars and beaters as the decade rolled into the 1960s.

                  With their distinctive style, it's no wonder they are easily the best-known Studebakers ever...well, that is, until everybody's uncle traded their bullet-nose in on a new Golden Hawk, according to 'most every story "we" hear at car shows!

                  Thanks to eevryone who is digging these up, especially aarrggh and Joe Roberts. BP

                  • BP, you make a great point. It is almost unbelievable how many of the late '40's and early '50's Studebaker show up in pictures of that era. I often if their popularity, in comparison to other 5 or 6 year periods is due to their being so different in looks alone. One thing for sure, they are not too hard to pick out in a crowd.
