  • Paint Scheme of Commander in "Super Studebakers"

    On the inside rear of the new "Super Studebakers" book there's a front photo of what appears to be a 1964 Commander at Bonneville. It has a light racing stripe down the middle of the dark body color.

    Unfortunately it's a black-and-white photo so the colors are not shown-does anyone know how it was painted? I own a '64 Commander that needs a new paint job...or if someone could post a color photo of it hat would be great.

    Tom: "Never say Never" in Studebakering, so understand that I am not doing so.

    I've not seen color photos of the 1964 Bonneville cars that depicted a car painted other than Bordeaux Red.

    Now, did I just say the car you reference is Bordeaux Red? No I didn't; but I'd bet $20 it was.

    The stripe was white. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

        This one??

        (The stripe appears to be metallic silver in this photo.)

                    Thanks, guys. My '64 Studebaker Commander is painted in a two-tone scheme done by the previous owner (teal body/white top) but I like the burgendy color with the stripe. Thanks for sharing that Motor Trend cover!
