Be sure to make it out to Rods and Roses this Saturday, July 2nd on Linden Avenue in charming Carpinteria CA! This week’s featured car is a beauty!
1959 Studebaker truck: This truck was bought in Santa Paula, CA., in 1959 at the Studebaker Car dealership on Main Street. It was used on the Open Ridge Ranch by the R.J. McClintock family, purchased for his wife. From the first day, she never liked the truck, she thought it was the ugliest thing ever, so most of its life was spent in the barn in many pieces. Some years later, R.J. decided to find her something else, came home with a camper shell and told her it was the new station wagon. This truck is a V-8, 3-speed with overdrive, 64,000 original miles and is driven every week!
Wow! Very cool! Thanks for sharing the car and the story. Wish I got to see it.
