A Brief History ………….

The Wagonaire model was popular with news agencies. movie studios. and photographers because of the sliding roof.   This feature allowed them to use it as either a moving platform for filming with cameras mounted on their tripods or a stationary platform. which easily moved from one point to the next. When the filming was competed the equipment the equipment only needed to be collapsed into the wagon. the roof closed. and they were ready to move on to the next assignment. The optional folding step on the tailgate made it easy to enter. load. or exit.

This Wagonaire obviously was some sort of pit car. tow car. or just some sort of equipment transportation for a Studebaker racing team of some sort. The prior owner believed it was used on the Bonneville Salt Flats as a chase car for filming the action while Studebaker was busy setting 74 speed records in 1963. He was unable to document that theory… but… There are some things that make me think he just might have been right about it… 1) Studebaker was advertising the Wagonaire as a pit/tow/spectating car for automotive events (a picture of the ad from '63 goes with the car); 2) According to the build sheet for the car (goes with the car when sold) it was ordered as an Unsold Vehicle by the Dealer in California. The previous owner still had the original 1963 California black plate (goes with the car). The car spent majority of its life in California until 2006 when the previous owner purchased the car.   3) The car has a Studebaker 259 cubic inch V8 engine but according to the build sheet on the car. this is not the original V8 engine the car left the factory with. From the sound of the engine when idling I think there is probably a mild cam in the engine as well. The car runs very well in town and on the highway at 70mph; 4) The signage and pinstriping on the car was done by an artist named “Brandon” with Signs N Lines. The previous owner located a Signs N Lines company in Roosevelt. Utah in 2010 but they could not provide info about this particular pinstriping job. Roosevelt. Utah is only located about 100 miles from the Bonneville Salt Flats. It does make an intriguing series of things that could lead one to believe it was indeed used on the Flats during the record setting Studebaker speed trials.

 

This car could easily be used as a daily driver. The car starts and drives really well. I enjoy the car on a daily basis… The little V8 has a nice rumble thanks to the Flowmaster muffler.  This wagon is constantly getting a Thumbs Up. The paint has some rough spots on the hood and there is some rust on the lower doors and the bottom of the tailgate (very common in wagons).   I would clear the car to preserve the patina and the Historic Paint Job. This car has such a unique paint job that looks amazing… People pay lots of money to have paint like this duplicated; here is your chance to have the real deal. The car is in very good shape for its age. The interior is nice and the exterior looks great too! It is in need of a headliner. window seals and some general attention. The engine has about 10. 00 miles on it since a complete rebuild. This car is ready to drive! Like I said earlier I enjoy the car on a daily basis.
