info on this Studebaker: from Conceptcarz site
In 1962 Studebaker-Packard President Sherwood Egbert hired Brooks Stevens to design some concept cars for future production, and the Spectre was intended for production in 1966. This unique car was built by Carrozzeria Sibona-Basano of Turin. It features an unusual full-width Sylvania headlight assembly designed to minimize glare to oncoming traffic and has different trim on either side of the body to show two styling options. Studebaker's failing financial position precluded further development of the Spectre and, following the company's closure, Stevens took possession of it and displayed it at his museum until his passing in 1995. It became part of the Studebaker National Museum's permanent collection in 1997 and is still in its original condition.
