For sure, episode 3.12 @19.16 ’47-49 Studebaker, parked

My best guess: 1948 Champion Regal Deluxe 2dr.

Could really use a closer, clearer photo but I'm listing as 1947 Champion.
Definitely from the '47-'49 time frame and appears to have a Champion front.
Bumpers don't appear wrapped but there is a suggestion the top of the bumper guards is wider, a '47 exclusive.

Can't really tell if the car has ss windshield trim but there appears to be bright rocker trim, a Regal Deluxe feature.

Righto -- maybe seeing in real time will help. Do you have access to the episode?
I watched this one on Foxeema, but you really have to dodge the adware.

Thanks for the approval.

Here's one for you, Commander 57.
'47 Studebaker Commander w/optional fender ornaments but w/o winguards, yes?

episode 1.08 @14:38
Clearest, closest photo of a Studebaker yet. Deserves it's own page? :think:

Your new photo from ep 1.08 shows a '48 Champion (note full ring hood ornament, new for '48 on Champions).
But is this the same car as the subject one?

no, but I thought they were both '47s.
Are you sure the car from 1.08 is a Champion?
Don't only the Commanders and Land Cruisers have the chrome side stripe below the headlight?
Could it also be a '47 or '48 Commander?

Quite right, Oddsoox. The penalty for posting too fast!

The thumbnail car IS in fact a Commander per the fender top ornament and the fender chrome you mentioned.
(The fender top ornaments were optional in '47 and '48 but made standard for 1949.)

It is a 1948 particularly, as the 1947 Commanders had bumper wing guards standard. They were optional in 1948.
(The 1949 bumper was wrap-around on both Commanders and Champions.)


That fire hydrant is a bit creepy looking. Like a mutant Pillsbury Dough Boy.
And wouldn't Mike and Frank love that vintage stop sign!

Grew up just 30 miles from where these episodes were filmed. Photos like these bring out the memories big time.
This stop sign has a AAA logo, remember these well.
And not just the stop signs (and white-on-black speed limit signs) dotted with those little reflectors, but note the barber stripes on the poles holding them.
Stop signs selling on e-bay for $200-$400 now.
Sometimes the billboards and store signs aren't fully masked so you can spot 76 stations and other places. I guess there's a Wooden Shoe Cafe chain that was big down there, along with Rand's Round Up chuck-wagon restaurants. And I remember the railroad tracks and switches running through the middle of town. Over- and under-passes largely a thing of the future.
We didn't have a dog so I didn't much notice the fire hydrants back then, LOL!

Back to the Studes, just placed another '47-'49 on this page and copied the '48 Commander to the '48 Studebaker page.
More coming as I find 'em -- certain to.
