This has to be one of the lowest mileage, cleanest original Studes there is. This is the way I like to find them. Trouble is I'm out of money and out of room.

A really clean Champion. The overdrive would make it a good highway runner.(As long as the hills weren't too steep. ;) )
The fender skirts with trim are interesting. I have never seen that trim before. I wonder if that is an after-market part?

I'm thinking the car has had at least a partial repaint by just looking at the color change on the driver's door and fender compared to the rear door.
Studebaker has such nice body lines on the 50's cars that fender skirts can't improve on them. I've never seen skirts with the trim like that either.

I’m surprised someone hasn’t picked it up yet— it’s been for sale for many months...

52 Champions don't get very many people excited. If it was a Starliner, convertible, or maybe a Starlight coupe, it would probably be gone at that price. A 4 door at that price, even with low miles, has a smaller market.

Stripper model: no radio, Climatizer, turn signals, horn ring...

True. I think the low mileage and condition would negate that if it was a Commander.
