1963 Studebaker Wagonaire Daytona


1963 Studebaker Wagonaire Daytona

The 1963 Studebaker Wagonaire was designed by famed industrial designer, Brooks Stevens, the same designer who designed the iconic Kaiser Jeep Wagoneer the same year. Since Studebaker was strapped financially, Stevens did not have a lot to work with so he took the existing Lark station wagon and re-designed the back end to include a sliding roof, the first of its kind. The sliding roof allowed more cargo room and the car was marketed not only to growing families but also to construction workers, delivery companies and even movie studios. The car was also the first American station wagon to include standard front disc brakes and a built in vanity mirror for the ladies. Despite its innovative design, the car only lasted three years, as Studebaker ceased production at the end of 1966. This is a three owner car and is factory original, receiving a repaint in the original color in 1991.
