YAK Car Pic of the Day

When do you ever drive up Payne Avenue in North Tonawanda and see a Studebaker out of the corner of your eye? Well, yesterday, if you’re me. And it’s not just a Studebaker; the original brochure officially listed this as a 1955 Studebaker President V-8 State Ultra Vista 4-door Sedan for 6 Passengers. Another case of someone in marketing getting paid by the word? The interior shots of the Ultra Vista make the seating area look larger than my living room. The wild green and brown “…Crestweave nylon upholstery attractively combined with cushions and caps of nylon twill” shown below is actually from the slightly less-expensive President V-8 Deluxe Ultra Vista 4-door Sedan for 6 Passengers, but it sure beats the light and dark tan two-tone cloth in the YAKmobile.
