    Gary, do you know if these are the only concept cars of this series to survive? Maloney mentions an earlier version of the Sceptre. Has it disappeared?

    I believe that there were three concept cars of this vintage. I don't know anything about "an earlier version of the Sceptre." I do not own Maloney's book, so I do not know specifically what you/he is refering to. I believe that Maloney worked for Studebaker for a couple of Summers in the early '50s, not when Brooks Stevens was doing his work for Studebaker. I am not trying to imply that he couldn't know about the concept cars. I believe that I last saw the concept cars in 1976. The three concept cars were a four door sedan, a wagon and the Sceptre-a two door. Brooks Stevens had other updates, like for the Hawk, but I don't believe that any of them went beyond drawings.

    Somewhere I do have a picture or two of the Sceptre at Minneapolis. That was a nice show - and the best part was my parents lived 2 miles away from the hotel.

    If I can locate the picture I'll post it.

    Thanks for the reminder. I also saw the Sceptre in 1994. It was 1976 when I last saw all three concept cars and out of doors, like they belong. Brooks Stevens gave a nice talk about the 1964 models at the SDC International Convention in 1994.

    I saw the Sceptre at the '94 International in Minneapolis. Regret not taking a good look at it. Some guys were pushing it out of the hotel hall area it was displayed in to the freight elevator I presume. Does it have a engine or was it driveable?

    These Studebaker concept cars were "liberated" from Studebaker by Brooks Stevens. Recently, they were purchased from the Stevens estate by the Studebaker National Museum, even though the SNM should have owned them in the first place (with the donation of vehicles from Studebaker Corp. to the City of South Bend).

    The later version of the Sceptre and the wagon concept vehicles are both in the Studebaker Museum. These cars are pictured in "Studebaker Cars" by James H. Maloney, a good reference if you can get a copy.
    These cars are pretty neat and as you might expect, predicted a lot of the design trends for the late '60's and early '70's.
