RAY CHARBONNEAU 1953 STUDEBAKER
We at the Custom Car Chronicle just heard the news that the Ray Charbonneau’s 1953 Studebaker customized by the Valley Custom Shop has been found and will be restored back to how it looked in the mid 1950’s.
We have no details about this yet, only two photos of the car showing some front end damage and missing the wonderful hand made grille.
Ray’s car had a four page feature article in the January 1956 issue of Rod & Custom Magazine. One of the cars high lights was the hand made wire and chrome plated grille. At this point we are not sure if this part is actually missing or perhaps damage from an apparent front end accident.
We will keep you posted and will update this post as we found out more.
Up to date info on the car car be found on the CCC-FORUM
The above three photos show how the car looks today.
