  • Studebakers in Rhodesia



    "1937 Studebaker at JH Vorster's garage for repair or more likely scrapping"



    "1941 Studebaker Champion"



    "1960 Studebaker V8 station wagon. Traded in a Peugeot 404 for this car. Motor removed and fitted with two banana exhausts, Burgess boxes, shift changed from column to console. Later sold to someone in Gwelo who unfortunately crashed into a tree and was killed."

    I found these pics on web page entitled Classic Cars in Rhodesia. There are many more pictures of other old classic cars at the site: http://www.classiccarsinrhodesia.co....%20photos.html

    I never cease to be amazed at where these Studebakers pop up. I would be curious to know how many (if any) there are in Rhodesia today. Does anybody know if there is a SDC chapter there?

      There is no mention of an SDC chapter in Rhodesia on the SDC Website's local chapter page.

        It's called Zimbabwe these days. And there is/are chapter(s) in South Africa next door.

          Note the right-hand steering on the cars. Rhodesia was once a British colony.

            That happens a lot on that continent. Upper Volta is now Berkina Faso. I can't afford to keep replacing my wall map of the world. Sheesh.

              Good thing I'm a RETIRED social studies teacher. I did not even think about Rhodesia having changed its name to Zimbabwe.
