  1. The old pick-ups are cool! Makes me want to restore them to their rightful glory – they should be in pictures….

  2. Studebaker Wagonaire Daytona! Having grown up in South Bend, where Studebakers were made, I saw more than my share of Studies. But I have never been fortunate enough to come upon one of these.

  3. Okay, I’ll make this brief since I am probably boring you as much as a “Keeping up with the Kardashians” episode. This 1961 Studebaker Wagonaire Daytona is a 1963 model. I know that the chrome around the headlights doesn’t curve downward like I said in my last post was a definite give-away for ’63, but for some reason Studebaker kept the chrome straight on its wagons that year. You can tell it is a 1963 because that was the only year with that grill that the side chrome trim was completely straight. All previous years the side chrome trim had some sort of dip in it. Also, if it had the name Wagonaire on it then it had to be a 1963 because that is the first year Studebaker used that name. Some Wagonaires had a slide in rear roof panel that made the car sort of like a pickup. They are very rare. Now to get really nitpicky, the proper way to label it would be a 1963 Studebaker Lark Daytona Wagonaire. Again, happy holidays!
