Studebaker entered the automotive business in 1902 with electric vehicles and, in 1904, with gasoline vehicles, all sold under the name "Studebaker Automobile Company". Until 1911, its automotive division operated in partnership with the Garford Company of Elyria, Ohio, and, after 1909, with The E-M-F Company.
The first gasoline automobiles to be fully manufactured by Studebaker were marketed in August 1912. Over the next fifty years, the company established a reputation for quality and reliability. After years of financial problems, in 1954 the company merged with luxury car-maker Packard to form Studebaker-Packard Corporation. However, Studebaker's financial problems were worse than the Packard executives thought. The Packard marque was phased out and the company returned to the Studebaker Corporation name in 1962.
The South Bend plant ceased production on 20 December 1963, and the last Studebaker automobile rolled off the Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, assembly line on 16 March 1966.
