Nicknamed the Weirdest Studebaker this car known as the Manta Ray is reported to be a 1 off was built in 1952 and became famous for a while. Originally painted gold it was built on a Studebaker chassis and powered by a Cadillac V8 this classic custom reportedly cost $2400 new.
Bought in the late 50’s for $750 it has remained in the same family since then. The interior is in keeping with the style of the car with a aircraft type steering wheel and a strange dashboard so crazy it has to be good.
The top is able to be lifted off making it an even more so head turning open 2 seater.
Reputed to be the ugliest ever, but it was 1952 open book styling so you be the judge on this.
