[column grid=”2″ span=”1″]Studebaker strapped for cash due to low sales and unable to secure financing for future models, moved production to its Canadian production plants in Hamilton, Ontario. The 1965 models were warmed over 1964 models. With cash being short Studebaker decided to close its engine plant and purchased Chevrolet V-8 engines and third members from GM. The Daytona Wagon with a sliding roof designed by Brooks Stevens was a hopeful answer to attract the family wagon customer with a multi-purpose wagon for the working man who needed to haul tall loads.
