  • Studebaker logos

    I've seen various different Studebaker logos, the wheel type, the red lazy S type and the semi Pepsi looking one. My question is, What years are correct for the various logos and specificaly, which one is correct for my 53 Starliner? Thanks,

    None of those appeared anywhere on the car. Are you asking which emblem would be correct on a mechanic's shirt or coverall of the same era? Or are you inquiring about emblems that should appear on the car?
    Six cylinder or V-8?

        Prior to 1950 I think the Studebaker red ball would be correct. From 1950 to57 it would probably be the crest emblem as appeared on the wheelcovers.
        Studebaker International lists the red ball as item 16-004 and the crest as item 16-012 at $3.50 each.

          So the lazy S came along in '58?? Do you happen to know when the red ball susperceded the Studebaker script?

            Actualy, the red ball appeared in '36. It took over from the spoked wheel with the Studebaker name across it.

              I know that the red ball started in the '30s. My '41 Champion had the red ball, but I don't know when the logo changed. My guess would be around 1950 when Stude used a crest, much like Ford did.
              Now, I could be all wet on this but that's my guess.
