RealRides of WNY #2525 ......................... 1966 Studebaker Cruiser

– When we came across this 1966 Studebaker Cruiser we should have peeked inside at the odometer. It wouldn’t have been a surprise to see it showing some low numbers based on its outward appearance, as well as the fact that it was built a short drive up the road in Studebaker’s final assembly plant in Hamilton, which they used exclusively after closing the South Bend, Indiana complex. The Cruiser was the top-of-the-line in this, Studebaker’s final production year. Available only as a four-door sedan, the Cruiser rode a 113-inch wheelbase which it shared with the other four-door models — the Commander sedan and the Wagonaire station wagon. Two-door models’ wheelbase was four inches shorter.
