1940 Studebaker Champion Introduction
The Studebaker Champion is an automobile which was produced by the
Studebaker Corporation of South Bend, Indiana from the beginning of the
1939 model year until 1958.
The success of the Champion in 1939 was imperative to Studebaker's survival
following weak sales during the 1938 model year. Unlike most other cars,
the Champion was designed from a "clean sheet", and had no restrictions
caused by necessarily utilizing older parts or requiring the subsequent use
of its components in heavier vehicles. Market research guided the selection
of features, but a key principle adhered to was the engineering watchword
"weight is the enemy." For its size, it was one of the lightest cars of its
era. Its compact straight-6 engine outlasted the model itself and was
produced to the end of the 1964 model year, with a change to an OHV design
The Champion was one of Studebaker's best-selling models because of its low
price (US$660 for the two-door business coupe in 1939), durable engine, and
styling. The car's ponton styling was authored by industrial designer
Raymond Loewy who had been under contract with Studebaker for the design of
their automobiles. Champions won Mobilgas economy runs by posting the
highest gas mileage tests. During World War II, Champions were coveted for
their high mileage at a time when gas was rationed in the United States.
From 1943-1945, the Champion engine was used as the powerplant for the
Studebaker M29 Weasel personnel and cargo carrier, which also used four
sets of the Champion's leaf springs arranged transversely for its bogie
The Champion was phased out in 1958 in preparation for the introduction of
the 1959 Studebaker Lark. Prior to this, Studebaker had been placed under
receivership, and the company was attempting to return to a profitable
