Abandoned Car of the Week


Studebaker adopted a bullet-nose style in 1950 giving its car a fresh look. Studebaker called it "The Next Look" in cars perhaps implying it would start a trend. Apparently the redesign worked — 1950 sales jumped nearly 250 percent rising to 320,884 units from 129,301 in 1949. This restorable '50 Studebaker was found in Casa Grande, Ariz.
