        I wonder who the two fellows are that the author of this article refers to as Andy and Joe Granatelli? Also,....Lew Welch designed the NOVI engine?....that sure would be news to Lew Welch!!
        In all seriousness, this article is an excellent example of shoddy, inaccurate journalism. Unfortunately, many take foolish articles like this as the gospel truth.

          All right.
          Point by point.
          Correct the innacuracies in the article and set the record straight.
          Disagreeing is one thing.
          Let's do it one better.
          Right the wrongs in the article.

            I noticed on the letterheads that Studebaker was still using the Main Street locaton in South Bend as their corporate headquarters in 1966. I have always found this interesting, as they were a large corporation, and it must have been odd for executives to drive into the main office past all the reminders of their failed auto efforts. I know (well, I am doing this from memory) they sold the headquarters building to the South Bend School District for $1 in in think 1969. Anyone have any idea how long Studebaker Corporation maintained their corporate headquarters in South Bend? My guess is no later than 1967, when they merged with Worthington.

              I believe you are correct as NYC became the head office of Studebaker-Worthington, but there was still employees on the Studebaker payroll in South Bend until 1972. I think Carl Thoms was one of them.

                    Thanks for your reply Steve, and for an interesting website.
                    A daunting task, for sure, but also a labor of love.
                    Hopefully, there are some people here that will step forward with knowledge that will help fill some of those gaps.
                    Good Job!

                      Thanks for the welcome, and thanks in advance for the help!

                      ...and here's one where I could use some help: This looks like a Novi to me. Is it, and any idea which one (if it is)? Photo from 1961 by Alex Tremulis.

                        To: gyronaut,------ Definite Granatelli NOVI. This is probably #75 from 1961. Originally built in 1956, (one of two), it was last run in 1963, and is now in the Talladega Museum in Alabama.

                              I won't tell you what I think of your reply....
                              Tell Steve about your contribution to his Novi info.
                              I am sure he appreciates any quality help he can get with his quest.
