1958 Studebaker Champion 38500 Miles Burgundy and White 3.0L I6 3-Speed Manual
0 Liter inline 6 paired to a smooth-shifting three on the tree 3-speed manual transmission. This Studebaker is special because this is the last year they made the Champion, and this Studebaker is one of only 1,455 Champions made in 1958. This Classic still does require leaded gas or lead additive.
The Champion was one of Studebaker’s best-selling models because of its low price (US $660 for the 2-door business coupe in 1939, equal to $12,279 today), durable engine, and styling. The car’s ponton styling was authored by industrial designer Raymond Loewy who had been under contract with Studebaker for the design of their automobiles. Champions won Mobilgas economy runs by posting the highest gas mileage tests.
So if you are in the market for a classic that you don’t see every day this is the car for you! Please call or email us today for more information. The success of the Champion in 1939 was imperative to Studebaker’s survival following weak sales during the 1938 model year.
