Studebaker Conestoga:

Wasn't that a horse drawn wagon that was favored by pioneers crossing the great North American west because the wagon box was designed to float, thus the owner could float his wagon across a stream by rope and horses stationed on the opposite shore?

RE: 1954 Studebaker Conestoga

Studebaker did indeed make covered wagons in the 19th century. And they had a reputation as an excellent manufacturer.
But they did not make the Conestoga wagon. That was made in the Conestoga Valley in Pennsylvania near Lancaster. Hence the name.

Oh, I'm drooling. My first car (bought in '68 for $86) was a 1960 Studebaker Lark. White, red interior. That little car was a tank--I have such fond memories of flying down the back roads to get to college in it.

LOVE Studebakers.

Good job! Thanks for keeping a couple pieces of the past alive.

The "Silver Lady" what an appropriate name. Quite a beautiful ride.
The Grand Am is pretty cool also.
