  • Could the car in this pic possibly be a Stude?

    I look at old photos that people post on eBay looking for Studebakers. This one is a wrecked car on a bridge. There are hardly any identifying items, but the gas tank placement and license plate with bumper guards and a portion of the roof to the right of the photo looks like it might be a 53-54 K body...any thoughts?

    It wouldn't be a C/K with a spare tire well next to the gas tank like what is visible in that pic.

        Yeah, you're right. I guess I was thinking of my 52 with the spare tire well next to the gas tank. [B)]

            The rear bumper and guards look very much like it is a '53 or '54 Sedan, too bad none of the body is visible!

            Looks like a Dana/Spicer R/A and Stude. frame!

                The ridges on the bottom of the tank, where it looks like the gas tank is striped in the photo, look like the ridges found on Studebaker gas tanks. I'd have to look again on one of our 55 sedan donor car but I coulda swore the spare tire wheel well sat in the passenger side spot where that spare tire wheel well is sitting now.

                        This one is also a mystery ( I would have guessed it was a 57 Chevy! )

                            Well Leonard; I do have to say, before I saw the bottom pic, I did spot the '56-'57 Studebaker type roll-back safety front seat, and also the 2 section tail light housing laid over and nearly crushed and thought '56 Sedan, even though I was only 80% convinced! From the front, I now can see it was! [:0]
