  • '61 Studebaker Images from Mister Ed

    Snagged these pictures off a Mister Ed show (Season 1, Episode 26). Interesting in that the Champ has whitewalls that seem to be a good bit wider than the whitewalls on the Station Wagon.

        Keep an eye out for Addison's (the Post's neighbor's) Avanti. It shows up every so often!

          Over in the Members' Studebaker Pictures section of our forum, a new member (falconwagon62) has posted pictures of his newly acquired 64 Daytona Wagonaire that has a special provenance. According to the production order, this particular Wagonaire was built and then sent to Filmways for the Mr. Ed television series. Below are a few pictures of this Wagonaire from that particular post as well as a link to an episode that I found on You Tube that I think uses this vehicle. Although the program is in black and white, the wagon used is clearly two toned and the interior, luggage rack, and antenna matches up. I did notice a different outside door mirror from what is currently on the car, but almost 49 years after its build date of 09/30/63, this is an easily explained change.

          The Mr. Ed episode is entitled "Ed the Donkey" and originally aired 02/23/64 during the show's fourth season. The scene with the Wagonaire begins at the 2:33 mark and continues throughout the episode.

            That would be because many Champs were ordered with the Optional 7.10X15 instead of the Standard 6.70X15, but most Larks had tiny 6.40X15 Tires, a full TWO sizes smaller even with V-8 Engines.

              Sorry but I have to disagree, Horizon Green is a fairly bright, very Silver Metallic Green and looks quite light with light on it, but there are scenes that show both bottom and top and they match perfectly.

              I am quite sure it is the same car, but it currently wears a repaint of a much Darker Green and a very White roof.

              I tried to see the third Seat, but it is either folded down or just not visable.

              It is my opinion that Studebaker would never allow something as obvious as a Two Tone paint job to be shown on a show they sponsor and supply the Vehicles for, when it was not available to purchase.

              Also there is no mention of the "Special Paint" on the Production Order.

                Were the mirrors on the Champ a factory option?

                  There's a 64 Daytona hardtop and a GT Hawk in this episode called Mister Ed: Ed the Chauffeur. Ed rents a panel truck and goes for a drive. The copy I have might be longer. I bought some homemade dvds off of ebay. I thought he talks to a couple in the Daytona at a stop light. They must have cut it for time.

                  Aired originally on Sunday April 12th, 1964
                  I don't know if this was after the sponsership ended. I'm sure it was filmed a lot earlier than when it aired. Maybe Studebaker still provided some cars for the show later. Anybody know?

                    I wonder if they were the "West coast" mirrors that I have seen mentioned from time to time. I also wonder why the truck has the P1 instead of the P2 bed...so many questions.

                      The Champ pictured is a '61. I guess I should know this........but was the P2 bed available in '61?

                        I saw some 62 episodes awhile back..Wilbur had two different Larks, and his neighbor had a GT.
                        Also, a street scene had more larks and a Champ.

                        I'd like to have a list of any episodes where Avantis were shown.

                          According to that customized license plate, that '61 Champ has the ultra rare 592 horse R-14 engine.

                            Well, looks like this video I refered to was made private so it can't be watched anymore.
                            I found my dvd and took out the part where he's driving. It seems like it took forever to upload it to youtube.
                            Enjoy!
