A Real Survivor
Odometer Shows 67,500 Miles
How many '55s have you looked at that
have been modified in one way or another?
If you are a hard core Studebaker enthusiast
you can easily spot some of the changes made
to those cars and hopefully question the quality
and safety of those alterations.
Sellers advertise their car as a President,
but the insignia between the two instruments
is from a Commander.
They say it's a President, but it's missing
the front fender birds.
They claim it's a President but the engine
has a two barrel carburetor.
Who the heck made the changes?
What kind of condition was that car in
before these modifications were made?
Were the modifications made by a qualified mechanic
or a competent, skilled body man?
Then when you call the seller to ask
some specific questions,
they claim they don't know much about
mechanical stuff and can't provide answers
to your questions.
Is it going to be safe to drive?
This Particular Car is a
REAL ORIGINAL 1955 Studebaker President State Coupe.
Remember, Cars are Only Original Once!
This One Is a Genuine Survivor!
The only Things Not Factory Original are
the Wheels and it's Paint Which was
Done Only Once in 2001.
The Car was Sold New in Louisiana.
I Have the Build Sheet and
the Small "Dealer Service Policy for Studebaker Owners"
that the original purchaser was given at
the time of purchase.
The later shows the Original Purchaser's Name
and Address, and Is
Signed by the Selling Dealer's Service Manager
with a Jan 31, 1955 Date.
It was Later Taken In Trade in the Early 60's.
The Dealer who took the car in trade
Loved the Car and Kept It for Himself.
He became ill in the early 70's and
Last Registered the Car in 1972.
When He Died the Car Passed To his Son and
Was Kept in an Enclosed Facility Until I Bought It.
The Son sold it because he was moving across
He Repainted the Car its Original Colors and
The Paint Work Was Quite Decent.
When I bought the car
it had just a hair over 65,000 Miles on it.
The Brakes Have Been Completely Redone and
Everything Works As it Should Except the Dome Light.
The WCFB Carburetor Which I Doubt Was Ever Rebuilt
Even Still has the Original Colors, and
Still Wears the Brass Tag with
The Original Production Date Code.
It Not Only Looks Great
But Also Runs Extremely Well.
Is it perfect? No!
Is it Rust Free? Yes!
Is this the one you should buy? YES!
