Studebaker House Car - 1929

The exterior of this luxury 1929 RV reminds me of a paddy wagon.

This unrestored 1929 Studebaker House Car was built for a wealthy but unknown family from the exclusive Los Angeles community of San Marino; it was lovingly named “Dulce Domum,” Latin for “Sweet Home.” The body itself, quite reminiscent in overall appearance and interior layout and appointments to a luxurious private rail car, was built by Advance Auto Body Works in Los Angeles, California. Established by Italian-born Medardo Morgagno in 1919 and active to 1951, Advance Auto Body Works produced a diverse range of innovative and visually striking bodies, often the physical expression of noted Los Angeles industrial designer William Everett Miller.
