Re: Name that car

I believe it is a 1924 Studebaker Light Six Touring Car.

This is how the Model 10 was advertised. You can see the gas lights and the rear seat that was removed. I think Dan's illustration of the black and nickel lamps is more likely than T lamps. They don't look like they had time to polish brass.
