The pride of South Bend
In case you have never seen one, this car was called a Studebaker. This model was the Silver Hawk.
Studebaker's West Coast assembly plant was at 4530 Loma Vista Ave. in Vernon. The factory resumed postwar auto manufacturing Oct. 18, 1946. The plant closed indefinitely June 8, 1956. It was producing 64 cars a day.
The site was later occupied by St. Regis Paper.
