Wanted! a Canadian Built Studebaker Pickup Truck

Written by

 

If you have a Hamilton, Ontario Built 1949-1955 Studebaker Pickup then you may be interested in hearing that Shawn and Ed’s Brewing Company is looking to have one on display at their Dundas Brewery. They would prefer it to be rust free but will restore if necessary.  It must be a Canadian built Studebaker truck which has the proper VIN plate from Studebaker of Canada. Here’s the e-mail and if you have one or know of one that maybe for sale give Shawn a call.

Keep on Trucking with a Studebaker!

Will Norton – Ontario SDC

Good morning Will,

My name is Shawn Till.  I am about to open a new craft brewery in Dundas, Ontario called Shawn and Ed’s Brewing Company.  www.lagershed.com  The brewery is inside an old skating rink built around the 1880’s, and we are trying to feature much of the history of Hamilton/Dundas in the retail part of the building.

I know that the Studebaker plant in Hamilton assembled pick-up trucks in the early 1950’s, and I would like to put one inside the retail part of the building on permanent display.  I have been looking for one for about 9 months, but haven’t found one yet.  I was hoping you might ask your membership if anyone might know where one might be, or if someone might be willing to sell one. I am a classic car guy myself, I am in the middle of restoring a 1929 Chrysler Model 75 roadster

Appreciate any help with this.

Regards,

Shawn Till

The Ontario SDC needs you!

Written by

Well it’s soon time again to hold our annual Executive Committee elections at the AGM. During the past three AGMs that we held elections it was voted to have two year Committee terms of office so we would have continuity. I thought it would be a good time to let you know what positions we are looking to fill for 2013 and 2014. The elected positions are:

President
Vice President
Treasurer/Membership
Recording Secretary

Presently our Recording Secretary position is vacant. If interested in any of the above positions just give me a phone call or send me a letter and I can let you know what is expected if you are interested in becoming an elected Committee Member. The deadline for accepting nominations for these positions is Sept 15th so we can post them via e-mail. The Chapter member that submits their name is expected to be at the AGM so if there is a runoff then a vote can take place and the winning member can be introduced. The following Committee positions are appointed by the above Committee members or are volunteers for certain functions, areas or events. The following members currently fill the following positions year by
year and are expected to remain in these positions for 2013.


Tourmaster(s)
Bill Foy – Eastern Ontario Region
Paul Revell – Toronto Region
Bob Easton – Niagara Region
Verne Brinsmead – Muskoka

Webmaster – Eric Norton
Editor – Eldon Kemp

Presently our Historian position is vacant and what we also need is a Tourmaster in the Southwest or Kitchener Waterloo areas so we can attempt to hold Chapter events in that area on a more regular basis. If you are interested in helping out as a Tourmaster in any of our areas or become our Historian give me a call or e-mail. If you aren’t sure then I hope you will consider attending the annual General meeting at The Village Inn in Lakefield on the 14th of October, 1 PM and get to meet your Executive and fellow Ontario Chapter SDC members. Come early and have lunch with your fellow Chapter members. The present Committee has worked hard to organize events for your enjoyment. Always looking for new ideas and events to make our Chapter better. See you at the Annual General Meeting

Studebaker Made In Canada – A time to celebrate

Written by

If you made it to Studebaker Made in Canada, congratulations as it proved to a highly successful event which saw us pay homage to eight guests of honour while proudly driving or displaying our Studebakers to all who came to the car show or admired our Studes while driving around in the Bay of Quinte area. The Ontario Chapter members support for this event was excellent whether coming for the car show or the whole weekend, helping to operate the registration desk or organize the car show, we did ourselves proud. In addition, the Hamilton Chapter SDC and the Canadian Avanti Owners Association had many of their members in attendance. Also visit the SMIC website with updated with photos from the event!
