This beautiful old Studebaker is from on or around 1947. The introduction to the wrap-around back window as shown in this car was in 1947, and the tail light shown, I believe, was used from 1947 to 1949. This was part of a Cruise Night car show at the Paddock Mall in Ocala, Florida on October 9, 2010. It sure is a beauty! I have added another view of the car from the other side below.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    would have cropped out the top left corner, again standing center back might have produced a nice look with this cars lines

  • Thanks, Dennis. I’ll keep your advice in mind for next time. I was up against a curb behind me, but I probably could have gone a little farther back and captured more of the chrome.

    A nice baby blue (I was a baby 1947), beautiful capture Dot!

  • Many thanks for all your wonderful comments and your support, Detlef. I was born in 1943, so I’m older than this old car! I never appreciated a studebaker before I saw this one.
