      I can positively confirm that we did consign a 1964 Wagonaire to Ed Sullivan. It was a Studebaker Canada arrangement since we sponsored the Ed Sullivan Show in Canada on CBC. The Wagonaire was actually used by Ed Sullivan's wife. I was invited to New York for the official recognition of the sponsorship deal.

        Thanks for this information, Stu. Now the Studebaker connection makes sense to me. I probably should have known about the Wagonaire since Ed Sullivan lived here in Dutchess County, NY.
        I remember that Ed Sullivan had a serious accident in a Lincoln while commuting from NYC to here.

        EDIT: I went back to the old post and added our information (above).
