Here are a few screenshots of a 1950 Studebaker I’ve been working on. What great styling on these cars. When I see these, the first thing I look at is the front end, that bullet-nose front end is what make these cars stand out.
From what I can find out is that designer Bob Bourke created the bullet-nose design while working at Loewy Designs.
Raymond Loewy, who is the first industrial designer to be featured on the cover of Time Magazine, did a lot of design work for Studebaker throughout his career.
Here is a great post for more information about the bullet-nose design called “The Bullet Nose Years“.
