Studebaker Cool: 114 Years of Innovation
May 18 – October 20, 2019
“Studebaker Cool: 114 years of Innovation” will explore South Bend, Indiana’s contribution to wheeled transportation in the World. While the exhibit will discuss the Studebaker Brothers humble start as a wagon manufacturer helping settlers move across the American frontier in Studebaker built Conestoga wagons, we will primarily focus on the last 60 years of automobile production ending in 1966.
The exhibit will include everything from the early World War I era to the Supercharged Fiberglass Avanti sports car including a rare sampling of Studebaker trucks, modified cars, and even the Studebaker the public never saw – The 1962 Sceptre: the Brooks Stevens designed prototype which was intended as the 1966-67 replacement for the Hawk. This is its first appearance in an east coast museum in cooperation with the Studebaker National Museum! If you like cool cars designed by the famous Raymond Loewy studios and are a fan of fast cars, don’t miss this fascinating look into one of the nation’s longest-lived, most innovative automobile manufacturers: Studebaker!!! There are more than 50 Studebakers as part of this expansive exhibit.
