No-no-no! It is not the copy of Studebaker and does not look like Studebaker.
Maybe the form of hood is a little bit similar...

Butbut...

Here is a GAZ-51...

And here is a Studebaker US6:

I think they look very similar - only the shape of the fender strikes me as being significantly different.


Marquette, you were right.

Early prototypes of GAZ-51 and GAZ-63 used cabins just from Studebaker US6:

Russian Lada in Indiana.
Notice the Russian plates.

Some guy from Indiana purchased Lada in Russian city of Vladimir and transferred it to USA...

New American plates mean "ВОТ ТАК" - "That's the way!", "wow!"

Those were on sale here in the early 80s, along with the Niva and the Skoda 105... you don't see any of those around anymore for years now, except Nivas. And anyone who has a Niva now pretty well refuses to sell it.

Yes, I know about Lada and Niva in Canada, but they were not on sale in the USA, as I know.
And the most essential thing: this car is not from Canada! This guy purchased it in Russia and transferred it to USA by ship! :shock:

Notice the Russian plates - they indicate that it was registered in Russia, in Vladimir city.

BTW, Niva is still in production in Russia (with some modernization) - as "Lada 4*4", because "Niva" brand now belongs to AutoVAZ-GM joint venture, they produce "Chevrolet-Niva" - more comfortable (and more expensive), 4-door version. (But it is almost the same inside).
