    Oh My God! Do I love this car or what?
    About a 1936 Studebaker 3 window coupe. Those Stylists were with it that year!




    There was a '37 / 38 Chev coupe there as well.

    The back glass and dash's on those were very art-deco for the time. Good find man.

    Very cool!

    I remember just one coupe stock car with a Studebaker body like that. It was a blue #3. And there were hundreds of 37-38 Chevy coupe racers.

    I've always loved the back windows on those....I was on the hunt hardcore for one a few years back but didnt have any luck finding one....
    It would be an ultimate taildragger...

    I just swooped in and took the photos. I'll have to go back and see if it's available.

    This is the grille.

    from so cal


    I beleve that era of Studebaker coupe was designed by Phillip Wright.
    Wright did design work for Murphy Coachbuilders, here in SoCal on
    Duesenbergs and other big named iron. He moved on to Pierce -
    Arrow, when Murphy closed it's doors and went on to design the
    1933 Pierce Silver Arrow show car; at ten thousand dollars in 1933
    money, it was quite a show car. The streamlined styling of Pierce
    vehicles found their way into production Studebakers when Pierce
    and Studebaker merged in the 30s.

    The 36 and 37 Studebaker Coupes both have similar rear windows.
    The big difference is that the 36 version opens and creates a nice flow through ventilation when the cowl vent is also opened.
    I got one of these coupes from Colorado in 2000, it's sitting in storage waiting it's turn. :)
