Both please. Sorry that's the only picture I have.
Studebaker and a Henry J
......4 minutes on a partial photo! Could be a record.
Not a Skyhawk. I have a Skyhawk and they are hardtops, not pillar coupes. The 1/4 panel trim 'V' shaped molding does look the same as the Skyhawk piece, and may well be.
In the '56 Studebaker Hawk pecking order....Golden Hawk, Skyhawk (both always V8 hardtops), Power Hawk (V8 pillar coupe), Flight Hawk (6 cyl pillar coupe). Only the Golden Hawk had any sort of fin in '56 and it was a short height vertical fin. In '57 the slanted fin, with the T-bird style curved leading edge was introduced and used through '61.
The quarter panel check mark says hawk, which appears to be swapped on since it's gold. The rest of the car looks black. The dash/instrument panel and steering wheel says '53 commander.
Wheel well says drag car ..
so many folks don't know that you can hold your phone sideways, and the whole car will fit in the picture.
Could be an Allstate, not a Henry J.
Redo 32 is right on the money. Study is around 55-56
That's if you got the rotate activated......
But then the OP maybe stuck in the past with a flip phone !
you can still turn the phone sideways and it will take a sideways picture. How it appears, has something to do with how the rotation setting is on your phone.
Does not matter on my phone, I still manage to get my finger over the lens!
Its hard to tell with the faded black paint on the door, but if the belt line crease wraps around into a cove the door is '53-'56. If it fades straight out it's '57 and later. The die cast trim around the windows is '53-'54 only, in '55 it was stainless and doesn't appear again after that.
It looks like the Stude may have had a rear clip attached.
Sears also sold them as Allstates.
Studebaker rear quarters bolt on. looks like it's from another Stude.
... yep. Modular panels. Pretty damn sweet.
Looks like a 1954 Studebaker Champion.
It’s always in some way
Nope its a Lowey Coupe. it could be a Champ or a Commander they looked basically the same. '53- the '60s were basically the same roof line.
Since I got the whole gang here, anybody know what studebaker model/year could have came with a top loader? That's what I really want for Christmas is a Packard/stude top loader that came around 55 56 and 57
So the rear quarters? Why would that have been done? For looks or for repair? Very cool.
Since it looks like it has the entire rear clip, including a portion of the panel at the bottom of the rear window, I am leaning towards repair.
I too thought the color of the 1/4 panel extended to the deck area, but after looking more closely, it does not.....the deck, like the roof, is faded black. The very dark area appears to be a well placed shadow.
Partial photos of two of the most recognizable cars out there, so it's no surprise that it only took a few minutes. It took a bit longer to figure out what model Stude.
If one had been an Essex Tri-Directional and the other a Cloaca Burdzass it may have taken a while longer.
............I can never tell the difference between the 1936 and 1937 Cloaca Burdzass.
Separate names with a comma.
