Yes, there were no 1967 Studebakers. At least officially. A few knock down kits might have been assembled in Israel after the end of 1966, but that year was the last model year for the company that started out building horse drawn wagons in 1852. Studebaker was fatally hobbled by inefficient plants and a lack of money to develop new models. That didn’t stop Sherwood Egbert, the executive brought in to save the company, from trying to develop a completely reworked Studebaker showroom.

That he tasked Raymond Loewy and his studio with the job of creating the sporty Avanti is well known. Less well known is the fact that Loewy’s team created a broader line of concepts based on Avanti styling including a four door Avanti and two sedans, one a conventional notchback and the other a fastback. Brooks Stevens, who tried to make the existing and dated Studebaker lineup look a bit more modern, also created a number of concept cars that would have given the South Bend company an entirely new styling direction with a family of crisp and modern looking cars, a wagon with a sliding roof, a sedan that borrowed some ideas from Mercedes Benz, which Studebaker distributed in the US in the 1950s and 1960s, and the Sceptre, a very sporty and sharp looking sedan. In addition to commissioning outside designers, Studebaker styling chief Randall Faurot came up with the Model X pickup, in a bid to get fleet business from Westinghouse. Though none of these cars ever got beyond prototype stage (though I believe they were all functioning rollers), they do show that if Studebaker had adequate financial means, they could have entered the 1967 model year with a completely overhauled and competitive line up. We’ll be looking at the Studebaker 1960s concepts individually in more detail in the next few days, but here’s a brief look at what could have been a Studebaker showroom in 1967.
