  • 1953 Two-tone at 1953 Oklahoma City Auto Show

    I'm just posting the link here, but there is a great photo of an unusual two-tone paint job on a '53 hardtop. Just ignore the Exner comment; it was corrected by another poster.

    Looks like that could have been a `53 version of a Speedster...

      I agree. Love to have those hubcaps.

        There were aftermarket trim kits for that two-tone separation.
        They look like the regular optional Studebaker wire wheel covers (available from 1953 - mid-1956 [standard on Speedster]).

          I'm thinking this might be a more of an Oklahoma Oil Industry anniversary celebration rather than a new model introduction car show.
          What's up with the Stude's roof?

            This almost looks like one of those garish things that Lowey used to do to his own cars, but toned down a bit. For a high class industrial designer, his taste was suspect at times.

              I am hoping it is just the reflection or lack of it from the Black wall on the rear half?

                That swoosh on the side reminds me of the 1950 Ford Crestline.

                  Sure would have been interesting to see the actual colors used. I also wonder what the gadget/medallion is hanging from the center of the front bumper?

                  I like the fog lights on this car.
