1949 Studebaker Champion
Here's an outstanding survivor Studebaker that has only been owned by one
family! The car has only 58k original miles on it and it definitely shows!
It's powered by a 169ci flathead in-line 6 cylinder and a 3-on-the-tree
manual transmission with overdrive. This one came with a hill-holder
clutch that still works! Under the hood it has had the radiator refurbished
with a new cap and hoses, a new fuel pump, and a new 6 volt battery. Other
than that, it's ALL stock! It has super nice interior that's been
tastefully restored with stock style upholstery on the seats and door
panels, a new front carpet kit, and a gorgeous unmolested dashboard with
all working gauges! Behind the seat it has a really cool alligator skin
trunk compartment separator, the starter button is under the clutch pedal,
it has a very nice headliner, a working dome light, and even the wipers
work! It's got nice glass, original bumpers and trim in good condition, the
original gray paint has cool patina, and there are side vents to cool you
while you drive! The Champion sits on the stock wheels with hub caps and
new 205/75/15 tires, it has SUPER NEAT body lines, and is very rare
especially in this condition! It starts, runs, and drives amazingly well!
1957 Studebaker Champion Saved From the Crusher! Amazing Edsel Prototype Found!
Hi! Today we're off to bring back a 1957 Studebaker Champion 4-door sedan

complete car, and I was happy to add it to the Cold War Motors collection.
Join us as we load up the old Stude and have a look at some other rare
cars, including an amazing pre-production Edsel serial # 100016!
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.

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.

In this video we show you how to replace the front brake pads on a 2007
Dodge Caliber SXT 1.8. This is a very easy repair that can be done at home
with only three tools: 9/16" wrench, 6" C-clamp, and a Lug Nut wrench. In
addition you'll need a jack and jack stands to work safely.
1955 Studebaker Commander 2dr GrnWht
Interesting V8 coupe by Studebaker. 1955 left Studebaker somewhat behind
in the styling trends..they were still working with the Lowey coupe, but
their rivals had moved beyond, including wraparound windshields. That was
an extremely sensitive point..cars without the new wraparound windshields
were at a competitive disadvantage...including the 55 Lincoln which would
adopt one in 56. We had a 54 Champion of the same green color. The heater
amounted to a coils under the passenger seat...and air would blow across
them to heat the car. Studebaker had some unusual trappings, like the
toggle switches on the dash and the vents in the front fenders (like the 57
