The Studebaker National Museum announced the opening of Hoosier Made: World Driven, a new exhibit that will open November 20, 2015, and run through October 3, 2016. This exhibit is an officially endorsed Legacy Project by the Indiana Bicentennial Commission.
In honor of Indiana’s upcoming Bicentennial, Hoosier Made: World Driven will look at the heyday of Indiana’s automobile industry when some of the world’s finest motorcars were built in the Hoosier state. The exhibit will be presented at Indiana’s three leading transportation museums, each with its own special exhibit focus: The Studebaker National Museum will feature the “Brass Era” of the early 1900s; the Kokomo Automotive Museum in Kokomo will showcase the “Jazz Era” of the late ‘teens and early 1920s; and the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum in Auburn will spotlight the 1930s “Classic Era.”
The Studebaker National Museum will showcase vehicles and artifacts from the Brass Era (Pre-1915), featuring an Apperson Jackrabbit, a Marmon Speedster, a Pratt-Elkhart, and many more!
