Studebaker US6 "Frozen In Time" (Engine Overhaul)
In the summer of 2009 this 1945 Studebaker US6 with its Hercules JXD engine
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.

MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer yet another stunning
Studebaker – this 1947 Studebaker Champion Two Door Sedan. This handsome
vehicle has benefitted from an extensive restoration in the past and it is
readily apparent. With its brilliant paint job, custom interior and
powerful 350 small block Chevy powerhouse, this Champion is sure to draw a
crowd anywhere it may go!
This ’47 Champion is a seldom seen two door sedan that we understand was
only produced for one year in this configuration. It is sure to be a hit
with everyone at the next car show or cruise night. With its custom,
brilliant yellow paint and black/yellow leather interior, the color
combination is incredibly striking. The paint on the car is in very good
condition with minimal imperfections. There is nothing major showing
anywhere on this very straight and solid body. Both front and rear chrome
bumpers are in excellent condition and look great with a brilliant shine.
The original chrome Studebaker trim piece on the trunk lid does show some
pitting but gives just a touch of originality to the otherwise custom hot
rod. This is one seriously good looking car that is definitely going to
turn some heads.
Inside, the custom black and yellow seats show no notable wear and are in
excellent overall condition. The two tone interior with the yellow paint is
a stunning color combination that is rarely seen in the Studebaker world!
The black carpet is in excellent overall condition as well. Headliner, door
panels and kick panels are all in wonderful condition with no major wear
showing. The dashboard is color matched to the exterior paint with
stainless accents. The dash houses a set of gorgeous, parchment Dolphin
gauges that look awesome and all function properly. There is also an
aftermarket stereo installed, along with aftermarket speakers installed
beneath the rear bench seat.
Under the hood, you will find a sleek 350 cubic inch Chevy small block V8.
The former owner told us that the engine has recently been refreshed and
has only had 3,000 miles put on it since completion. Mated to the motor is
an automatic transmission. This car goes down the road with great power and
is an excellent driver! The Studebaker sits upon a set of 14″ alloy
wheels wrapped in P195/75R14 tires in the front and P215/70R14 tires in the
rear. It should be noted that this Studebaker has a Mustang front end, 4-wheel disc
brakes, air conditioning and heating.
This Studebaker is an excellent driver, would make an awesome show car and
wonderful addition to any garage. The VIN is 4391140 (as seen on the lower
driver’s side door jamb) and the mileage currently shows 3,577. It is
being sold on a clean and clear title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!

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.
