  • Studebaker, Maker of......Milk Trucks?

    From the Feburary 23, 1959 issue of Automotive News:

    S-P Discusses Merger With Divco-Wayne


    Eric DeRosa

    \'49 2R-5 (original Survivor)
    \'63 R2 Lark (the money-pit-mobile)
    \'60 Lark Convertible (project in waiting)

    Lark profits must have been burning a hole in Studebaker's pocket so they wanted to make some corporate acquisitions? It surprises me that they would entertain the idea of buying a truck manufacturer when Studebaker was so stindgy about investing any money in it's own truck division.

      That's too bad the merger never happened......I'm certain there would have been a market for an R2 powered Divco milk truck... (but the driver had better sit down!)

        One of the Studebaker dealers I bought out had a bunch of Divco parts books. I often wondered why. I was not aware of this potential merger so maybe this explains the books.
