Studebaker?
This is the car Dean crashes in with his Porsche.

No, it is a Ford, like the real one was.

It's a Ford (according to the Wikipedia article, the real car this one is portraying was a '50 Ford Tudor: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Dean#Death)

Not really a Ford like the real one. The real one was a 1950 Ford Crestliner, with more chrome and a different and specific 2-tone scheme. This one is rather a simple DeLuxe 2-door sedan painted to look vaguely like a Crestliner.

Yes, the vehicle that crashed into Dean's Porsche was driven by Donald Turnupseed, a 23 year old California Polytechnic State University student.

When he crossed the centre line into the path of Dean's vehicle, James Dean was doing 85 MPH (about 137 Km/h).

Turnupseed's Ford didn't carry Crestliner trim, rather it was customized with 1955 Pontiac side trim and the same paint scheme shown here.

Turnupseed mentioned in a letter to a friend (the only time he ever spoke of the accident) that his car also had a Mercury 255 flathead engine with mutliple carburetors, Offenhauser heads, H&M Magneto, and an Eagle cam.
