  • #11 Studebaker collectibles - Some coveralls you have probably never seen

    http://i230.photobucket.com/albums/e...g?t=1329083253

    Unfortunately no size is listed and no tag indicating the original maker. As you will likley recall Studebaker had three plants where the Wright Cyclone parts were made and engines assembled (Fort Wayne, Chicago parts and South Bend
    final assembly).

      I have heard that there is a Studebaker building, for aviation, in Santa Barbara CA. A friend has seen the corner stone on the building. I have not verified, but need to try and run it down sometime.

        Oh Mark, that sounds like a neat destination for a saturday afternoon club drive sometime. If you find it, please post up the address. Any reason to get out and drive a Stude is a GOOD reason.

          I've seen several photos of guys working in the Chippewa plant wearing those overalls. The odd thing was that ALL of them were ONLY wearing them in Chippewa's test cell area. I didn't know any still existed. One of these days I want to have a copy made. Thanks for sharing.

            Richard - what about the Vernon plant?

              Mark,

                The arms look longer than the legs. Optical illusion?

                  The Vernon plant was involved with production of aircraft parts but not the Wright Cyclone engines.

                    These are coveralls, no pants!

                        GregoryLeslie, I will talk to my neighbors Dad who told me about it. He saw it and in a discussion one day mentioned it. I will ask him again soon and let you know.

                          Richard, I've related before, how my late neighbor told of his calling the Vernon plant every evening to find how many engines they'd be delivering the next morning. Delivering them to the Lockheed plant (in Santa Monica) where he was employed at the start of WWII. Seems to me, I recall seeing a photo of the Vernon engine assembly line - but I wouldn't know where to look for that.

                            It looks more like what I would refer to as a "shop coat" than "coveralls".
