1953 Studebaker Commander V8 Starliner hardtop advertisement

Full story: AutoWeek

This classic ad may technically be for Studebaker's entire 1953 lineup, but it's the automaker's halo car -- the Raymond Loewy-penned Commander Starliner hardtop -- that's front-and-center.

I would hasten to remind you that Studebaker motors went out of business because too few people bought the product.

The car engines tended to burn oil after 50,000 miles and the design grew stale when compared with the rest of the autos in the market place.

We no longer make buggy whips or wagons for horses today because that technology was surpased by autos & trucks.

There are lots of really cool cars from that era but studebaker was never really cool or popular with the motoring public which is why they went out of business.
