  • Wildflowers Film With The Giant Studebaker Found!

    Somebody posted this on YouTube recently. I'm glad to see that a copy of it exists after all!
    I guess it's spelled "Wild Flowers". My computer won't let me edit it.

    Very nice ! Todays all-digital car advertisment's where a car can "morph" from one model into another (or a completely different shape for that sake..) gives a perspective of the years gone by.. Guess in those days it was only the movie theatres that was the way to distribute the film - but quite a long "comercial" (almost 9 minutes).

      Yep, the Studebaker Champions; first lead by Jean Goldkette, and later on by Richard Himber.

          Yeah, It's cool. Richard Quinn needs to see it.
          It would be neat to have this video playing next to the giant hubcap at the SNM or at the proving ground clubhouse.

            See it???? Wasn't that him dancing on the rear fender? Or was that him polishing the wheel cover, thinking "Someday, you'll be mine!"

            P.S. Did you notice that guy broke the door handle?

              Absolutely! He can tell us what the AC# is for that radio in the car he drives up in!

              EDIT. Looks like its a Delco-Remy radio: https://forums.aaca.org/topic/188-19...ge/2/#comments Did Studebaker offer a Delco-Remy radio besides the Philco Transitone?

                        That was just the swellest video I've ever seen.

                        It upsets me everytime I see that giant Studebaker that it was destroyed.

                          We searched for over 20 years for a copy of this film. Quinn located one about 3 years ago. It has been restored and the museum has it now. Dick can fill in the details. It is nice to see a second copy survived.

                            Golly gee, I thought it was swell too!

                            I especially enjoyed the soft shoe on the running board which almost was a Moonwalk.

                            Thank you for posting!

                              In an old issue of the ASC Review (IIRC) Artie Que had asked the membership about a styling feature of the "giant" President that was "incorrect" since it was not a part of the model year production cars. I'm quite sure that I remember the answer.

                              Any one care to make a guess as to what is inaccurate on the big proving grounds display car?
