After driving my car to a number of car shows, and back to a few Studebaker meets, I've wanted to move on from my 1953 Studebaker Champion sedan, and lowered the price a bit. 56,000 miles 169.5 cui 85hp flathead 6 Original Seats, and door material, rubber floormats, replaced headliner, No options other than Electric Windshield Wipers, and Heater/Defroster. Installed turn signals and seatbelts. She drives along at a nice rate, and everyone always seems to like her. I'm hoping to get 5,000 but..will listen to offers. 35127 35128351293513035131351323513335134

Forgot to mention it's rust free too ;) Spending over 50 years in the Mojave.

Kel, I'd snap it up, but my budget for initial purchase is only 5k...and that would be at least $1200 to ship. But GLWS! I like her...

Um... you say rubber floor mats, but that looks a lot like carpeting in the pictures. Not that I'm objecting... it looks exceptionally nice. Is this a grey or light blue? It looks almost like the car is in primer. Sill a lovely car.

Yes, the car has rubber floormats. The color of the car is Olympic Grey, with Coral Red Rims. A fairly similar example is this 1954 ad in the same colors. http://oldcarbrochures.com/static/NA/Studebaker/1954%20Studebaker/album/1954%20Studebaker-15.jpg

Hey 57Kelli: Met you the other afternoon at the Bob's Big Boy Cruise-In. You didn't bring the Champion but, the cute Fiat instead and parked next to the 'back to the future' DeLorean in 'full make-up!' When you showed me the picture of her on your smart phone, I thought it was a two door (from the angle of the pic). Good Luck on movin' on up!
