Here's a 1950 Studebaker Champion 4 door for you that is ready and willing to take you and your friends or family on your next weekend cruise. Dressed in Midnight Blue Metallic which really pops next to its original chrome and stainless steel. Showing only 60,191 miles on the odometer and rolling on some good treaded bias ply tires, this baby has the same appearance as it did when it rolled of the assembly line back in South Bend Indiana.
1950 was the first year of what became Studebaker's trademark, the Bullet Nose, which once you see one, you automatically know that what you're looking at is a Studebaker. The easy entry rear suicide doors reveal the nice beige cloth interior with full bench seating front and rear. The original HaDees heater box mounted under the dash keeps everyone nice and warm on those cold winter days and the 3spd on the column is fun and easy to drive. The original straight six engine starts right up and drives great.
Come on into our huge climate controlled indoor showroom and grace your eyes upon this 1950 Studebaker Champion and once you do, you'll make sure the next home for this Champion will be back home in your garage. Don't let this one get away.
Studebaker US6 "Frozen In Time" (Engine Overhaul)
In the summer of 2009 this 1945 Studebaker US6 was brought back to life and
driven 75 miles back to civilization after being abandoned in the remote
Alaskan wilderness and "frozen in time" for two decades. Now in June 2013
the old war horse is getting some much needed TLC and a new lease on life.
This truck was built on May 23, 1945 -the day Himmler commits suicide.
1951 Studebaker Champion Engine Revamp
SCCNSW member Scott had some issues with his Champion's engine, and needed
to give it some attention. While he was at it, he dressed it up a bit, and
gave it a little bit more performance in 2011.

1940 Studebaker Champion arriving at the Stude-Intl S. Bend headquarters
May 7, 2010 ride in a 1940 Studebaker to the new Studebaker International
South Bend headquarters (former Studebaker Aviation plant). Heading west on
Chippewa Avenue and north to the Studebaker Business Center. Studebaker
built military airplane engines and military trucks here beginning during
World War II. After Studebaker quit production of trucks, the facility was
occupied by the Kaiser Jeep Corporation for the continued production of
military trucks until American Motors Corporation purchased the Jeep and
truck operations from Kaiser Industries in 1970 which led to the formation
of AM General in 1971 by AMC for it's government contracts. Military and
USPS (mail delivery) Jeeps and Humvees were once produced here.
CHECK OUT THIS BULLET NOSED 1950 STUDEBAKER STARLIGHT COUPE
What you see here in this video is an extraordinary yet controversial
design by Bob Bourke. Although the Studebaker Starlight Coupe was produced
in 1949, that year critics were saying it looked like it was the same,
coming or going. So, a major facelift took place for the model year of
1950. The major facelift design was the bullet nose that is capped by an
airplane theme jet intake. The airplane theme mimicks the famous 1949
Ford's grille. The most outstanding feature of the Starlight Coupe beside
the bullet nose is the curved five piece rear window which was an
outstanding glass production feat in 1950. Note the sunvisor mounted over
the front windshield. This coupe body was mounted on a 120 inch wheelbase
and had power from an engine that produced 102 bhp. An improvement for all
1950 models was the replacement of archaic single transverse leaf
suspension with front coil springs. If you ordered an automatic
transmission for your Stude it had the "hill holder" feature, a feature
developed by Studebaker in the 1930's. Rivaling the Big Three automakers
in price, a Starlight Coupe was priced around $1,400. Studebaker broke
sales records this year by selling over 320,000 cars - quite a feat for an
independent car manufacturer. Though the design of this car was different,
if you look at this car's design objectively, I think you will agree that
this car doesn't look that bad at all.
