This is a very, very nice, excellent running Studebaker Commander. Restored some time in the mid 90's, and driven selectively since, It's obvious this Commander has lived most of it's life in the garage, as there is no rust in this car!
This is an excellent car to cruise around in and take the family or some friends with you. It's very comfortable, and is truly in amazing condition.
The black and white paint combination is spot on for the era, and the body panels are excellent!
The interior was restored, and is extremely clean and comfortable.
The engine almost starts before you turn the key, and runs as smooth as a sewing machine. Pull the automatic into drive and the little 259 V8 pulls the Commander around just fine.
The undercarriage of this Studebaker is original, clean, and dry. No patch panels, rusted areas or damage. This car is amazingly preserved.
If you follow a different path than most, and you relate that to your classic car selection, this Studebaker should fit nicely into your desire for a unique collector car.
All trim and bright-work is present on the car, and there's quite of bit of it. The luggage compartment is also very clean, and the weather stripping is soft and pliable.
This is a fantastic example of a car you may have seen on the road back in the late '50's-early'60's, that you just don't see anymore...A very cool Sedan!!
