1949 Studebaker Champion
http://www.barnfineclassics.com/inventory/1949-studebaker-champion-business -coupe 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!
