The first day you drive your own excitingly different Champion, the admiring comments of your friends and neighbors tell you what a smart buy you have made. Studebaker Original Sales Brochure. And who could argue!! Studebaker is one of the oldest names in the American automotive world with their origins in the manufacture of wagons and mining carts in the 1850s, then very forward thinking, they went into electric cars in 1902 before finally producing petrol engine cars in 1904. They went on to build a reputation of quality and reliability combined with some of the most stylish cars of their day. From the late 1940s through to 1957 they were the largest independent car manufacturer behind the giant 3 of GM, Chrysler and Ford. They merged with Packard in 1954 but financial problems plagued the joint venture and the last Studebaker rolled off the production line in 1966. The Studebaker Champion was a fabulously styled car from the peak of the glamorous 1950s era with the design penned by the renowned Raymond Loewy. No one understood the American Dream better than the Paris born Loewy largely because he lived it. Loewy founded the worlds first design consultancy in New York where he worked on various projects from designing the Lucky Strike cigarette packet (a product that he smoked through a solid gold cigarette holder), the Presidential aircraft Airforce One, Coca-Cola, Greyhound Busses and the lazy S of the Studebaker badge which was in fact his own handwriting. He was the founder of modern Industrial design and Studebaker gave Loewy full credit for styling most of its cars from 1938 through to 1956 and the two became synonymous with one another much more so than any other designer and car name. The Studebaker Champion is pure Loewy with strong influence from aviation design and using much more glass than the competitors to give the cars light and airy interiors. The engines were more conservative in design being a flathead 6 cylinder, displacing 170 cubic inches (2.7ltr) and with a compression ratio of 7.5. The gearbox is a column mounted 3-speed manual otherwise known as 3 on the tree. This particular car is a 1954 example finished in a pale yellow with a blue roof. It has the optional extra wheel discs and white wall tyres with a dark brown interior. The car drives well and the gearbox and brakes all function exactly as they should. It comes with a nice history file and is on the button ready to be enjoyed.

This is an incredibly rare, right drive Studebaker Champion that has spent most of its life in South Africa, coming to the UK for the first time in 1989. The model is a very interesting design by Raymond Loewy who was famous for designing the original Coca Cola bottle. The car is styled with sculptured steel, was very innovative and dynamic for its day and featured flat floor entry (accommodate hat wearers), ladies peddles (easy to use with heels) and ultra light steering. Further interesting features included hill holding brakes, easy shift gears and rare flight style instruments with futuristic coloured display speedometer. We are told this is the only example known in Europe and is an ideal collector's piece that can also be driven and used regularly with confidence.

  • Auction: 18th/19th Jan 2018 - RM Sotheby's - Arizona Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Arizona event, 18 - 19 January 2018. Estimates:$150,000 - $200,000 The Studebaker brothers, Henry and Clem, established a wagon shop in South Bend, Indiana, in 1852 with a total capital of just $68.00. Migration to the western territories, the Indian Wars, and orders from settlers and the U.S. Army for covered wagons brought them great success; the company was grossing $350,000.00 annually by 1867. Joined later by three more brothers, Studebaker offered its first electric vehicle in 1902 and its first gasoline-powered car by 1904. In the Twenties, the company offered three series in ascending order: the Dictator, the Commander, and the top-of-the-line President. With the introduction of the President in 1927, Studebaker entered the exclusive luxury car market, no doubt influencing the companys 1928 purchase of the legendary Pierce-Arrow. The Art Deco styling of the President and quality of its coachwork was equal to that of any of the grandAmerican marques of the era. All Presidents rode a 135-in. wheelbase with power supplied by a 122-hp 337-cu. in. straight-eight engine. Studebakers are known for their excellent performance and drivability, as evidenced by numerous endurance records, Pikes Peak hill climbs, and Indianapolis 500 appearances at the time. Studebaker built 6,340 Model 80 Presidents in 1931; some 54 Four Seasons Roadsters are known to survive, including this example. It was subjected to a comprehensive nut and bolt restoration completed in August 2005. Today, the engine compartment, undercarriage, chassis, and interior reflect little use and are as restored more than 10 years ago. Finished in a subtle, but attractive pale grey body with darker grey fenders and running boards while accented by a red beltline, wire wheels, and leather interior, this CCCA Full Classic has quite a striking appearance. A black cloth convertible top with red accents and dual side-mount spare tires are fitted with matching black cloth covers,and strap-on rear view mirrors are included. A rumble seat and golf club compartment, as well as Studebakers distinctive Ovaloid headlamps, complete the look for a most handsome automobile.Whether showing or touring, this rare and unique automobile will no doubt impress.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/AZ18.
