Little known in Europe, the Studebaker brand was synonymous with car manufacture in the United States. The first car of Studebaker, debuted in 1902, and due to lack of resources, they left the automotive market in 1966. During their run, they brought multiple successful models that have gone down in history, including the Champion, which spanned five generations. Due to its affordable price, quality materials, and rugged construction, the Champion proved to be an ideal family car. This well-preserved garage-kept example of the 1954 Studebaker Champion Coupe comes to you from Florida with original documentation available. It was bought as a pair along with a Studebaker President (also listed) and has been restored to original using period correct components.
The Studebakers President was initially produced from 1926 to 1942 in their home of South Bend, Indiana. After over a decade of absence, the President was reintroduced and continued its reign until 1958, when the model was finally retired. This, the fourth-generation Studebaker President, made a comeback in 1955 and was a new and improved version of its predecessors. However, the most noteworthy President was the speedster trim, such as the one in the example. This 1955 president coupe currently resides in Florida with just 65,000 miles to its name.
