  • Studebakers on Album Covers? Let's See 'Em!

    I was listening to Pandora radio this evening while checking out the forum. I looked to see what song was playing, and this was the album cover that appeared!



    I had actually bought this LP (yeah, I'm at least that old) when I was in high school -- just because of the cover art!

    Do you have (or know of) any musical albums with Studebakers on the covers? Let's see 'em!

    Interesting, no covers that I know of. Get ready to explain Pandora for those who aren't aware of the music App.

      Matt, I have a couple of those covers with the GT Hawk on it if you'd like one.

        I forgot all about that Alexander O'Neal album! One of his better ones, too IIRC. That's the one with "Fake" on it, right?

              Studebaker by Kenny Smith. It's a bluegrass CD I bought on ebay. It has a nice 2R5 on the cover.

                  I completely forgot about this one 'til I ran across it over the weekend:



                  Great Christian country-rock band from the 70s - this one came out in '77.

                      Remember the song "GTO" by Ronnie and The Daytonas? Well, a GTO was on the cover, but there was another song on that same LP called "ANTIQUE '32 STUDEBAKER DICTATOR COUPE". It's a 'must hear'.

                        The car in the picture is actually a '32 Studebaker roadster, not a '31. No way to say for certain what model it is (i.e. President, Commander, Dictator or Six). Incidentally the '31 President was the only one that was referred to as a Four Season Roadster. In '32 they were simply convertible coupes.

                              Another album with a M5 pickup is "Studebaker Rebel" by The Calhouns. They also have another album, "Studebakin" with a Hawk on the cover.



                              The band members apparently are from South Bend, but travel throughout the midwest to preform.

                              Most of the songs on "Studebaker Rebel" mention Studebaker and South Bend, and include:
                              "Drivn' Down the Hi-Line"
                              "Everybody's Uncle Used to Have One"
                              "Avanti Bill"
                              "First By Far" ..with a post-war car...
                              "What Kind of Picker Are You"
                              "Studie in the Weeds"
                              "Multiply"
                              "South Bend, Indiana" and,
                              "No Sir, It's Not a Rambler"


                              The "Studebakin' " album includes these songs:
                              "Studebakin"
                              "Summer of '55"
                              "Golden Hawk"
                              "V-8"
                              "My Car Won't Start"
                              "Lemonade"
                              "Indiana Iron"
                              "Twelve Dollar Truck"
                              "The Spare"
                              "The Lady and the Champion"
