Studebaker camperwagonaire65

Sadly, it appears that the “consumer reaction studies” that were undertaken did not result in this prototype going into production. Frankly, by the summer of 1965 Studebaker had more pressing matters to consider, since production in South Bend had already been shut down, and only the Canadian plant was still producing cars. I wonder what happened to the prototype?
