I have a large Studebaker post card collection but I won't bore everyone with them all. Here are a few favorites
Don


Coupe Express, late 1930s truck bed on car chassis, looked great with optional side mounts.

Leningrad - 1968 PC - Russia to NZ. Written and posted.
In 1914 the name of the city was changed from Saint Petersburg to Petrograd, in 1924 to Leningrad, and in 1991, back to Saint Petersburg.

Interesting row of 60's Russian Cars including a soft top and an official looking chequered car.

I for one would never be "bored" by looking at old Studebaker postcards, they were a very innovative brand in their day.

In fact, looking at the Studebaker Coupe Express postcard (1937 model year, I think) it's a wonder why it wasn't more successful, but I guess it was too far ahead of it's time.

Interesting to see how a couple lighting up/smoking was perceived to have advertising appeal back then

You would need a disclaimer now.....'smoking damages you health'

An art deco vehicle at its best ... and don't forget the stamp that goes along with it!

Some early 1950's era French scenes with cars speckled throughout.

This one isn't as old as most of the post cards shown here
but it brings back memories of going up to cottage
country in the late fifties with my parents.
The car I'm sure is a 1958 Pontiac, not sure about which
model though.
Maybe a Bonneville?

Great shot - scary looking roof box - I would agree it does look like a 1958 Pontiac Bonneville

Given that the postcard is clearly from Canada, my vote is for the 1958 Pontiac Parisienne (The Bonneville name wasn't used in Canada at that time.)

51Studbaker,

If you have other color Studebaker advertising cards from the 1930s I would love to see them - especially the color ones. I used to collect these type of postcards as a child, but never saw early Studebaker ones.

lithograving,

The Pontiac on your postcard is a 1958 Canadian Pontiac Strato Chief.

Yup, Strato-Chief. Canadian Pontiacs back then were basically Chevrolets with Pontiac looking sheet metal.

Oddly I just sold my 58 Bonneville...

I'm not sure I agree with the "Strato Chief" designation for the car because the Strato-Chief apparently had only three stars on the rear quarter panel; the picture postcard shows four, which leaned me more towards the Parisienne model.

Remembering that this must be the Canadian version, here's where I got my information (see pages 2-4). What do you think?
