1950

Studebaker Land Cruiser

Description

  • Manufacturer: Studebaker Corporation
  • After World War II, most automakers offered vehicles that were a slight update of boxy prewar designs. In contrast, Studebaker urged its engineers to develop a new, modern look. The result was sleek, bullet-nose styling, adapted from airplane designs that captured the imagination of the American public.
  • Approximate cost: $2,000
  • The unique grill was called the “bullet nose”
