Raymond Loewy Studios
Raymond Loewy' is almost a brand rather than a single person, and 'designed by Raymond Loewy' often means by 'Raymond Loewy Studios'. Raymond Loewy emigrated from France in 1919 at the age of 26 arriving with scarcely more than his clothes. For ten years he did a variety of jobs before getting a commission to modernise the appearance of a Gestetner printer in 1929. Following that he was commissioned by Westinghouse and Sears-Roebuck and also styled the Hupmobile. By 1937 Loewy designs were steaming along the Pennsylvania Railroad, and his studios grew until he had 143 designers by 1949. Loewy Studios started working for Studebaker in 1936 although it seems Virgil Exner may have done much of the work. The 1947 Starlight coupe was a version of the Studebaker Champion and Commander models with a novel wraparound 3-piece rear window and no side windows. Now attributed to Virgil Exner, the Starliner was replaced by another Raymond Loewy design (attributed to Robert Bourke) for the 1953 Studebaker Coupe. This design appeared in smaller form for the Sunbeam Rapier and its sibling Minx and Gazelle models when Raymond Loewy's London studios were engaged by the Rootes organisation. Raymond Loewy Studios had also worked with Austin on the initial designs for the Austin A30, but Leonard Lord has his own Dick Burzi revise the proposals. By the end of the 1950s Studebaker was almost out of business, and Raymond Loewy was asked to design one more model, the Studebaker Avanti for 1962 but Studebaker couldn't survive long enough to sell this and it was independently produced later in small numbers.
