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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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?
