Studebaker Land Cruiser - 172

 

Is it a car or is it a piece of sculpture? I bought this without knowing anything about the car, still don't, but isn't it wonderful? I wish cars still looked like this. I only know Studebakers through die-casts - this one, the Golden Hawk (both Dinky & Corgi), Lark Wagonnaire by Husky and Matchbox, but they were all quirky, sculptural and a bit odd.

The one from the late 40s with what looked like a huge bullet in the middle of the bonnet was really extraordinary - its a shame cars are all so samey now.
