  • Production photo from my files.

    This photo was used in a magazine ad about 20 years ago. Not sure if it has been posted before, so here goes.

        I just wondered in what direction the conveyer is moving? Is that a drying oven the bodies are leaving, or is it some other kind of booth the bodies are entering?

          It looks like a touch up area; the worker in the middle has a bunch of spray guns in front of him, and there is a large hood over his work area. Also the glass and trim are already installed, but I'm with SN-60-is that a drying booth on the left?

              That photo was taken inside building #84 (body plant, still standing). The car are moving FOREWARD through a dryer. Cars were painted with bake on lacquer and this is where the paint would be fully dried.

                  Guaranteed none, Bob. By the trunk handle these are 47-49s.

                  Interesting to see a production order (?) taped to the firewall. Don't recall seeing that before in this era.

                    Wel, there weren't any production wagons at this time. I think it is a 4dr sedan and the C-pillar panel just curves away just enough to not be visible.

                      Studebaker only used High Lead content Baking Enamels Chris. You never could get a long lasting, tough, thick finish like Studebakers had, with cheap Lacquer like GM used.

                        This photo received great exposure on page 125 of the renowned THE STUDEBAKER CENTURY publication of 1987 by Asa Hall & Richard Langsworth.

                          I like this picture as it displays what went on in the factory. Thanks for posting it.
