    Welcome to the Forum, Joan.
    I assume your President's name is "Frankie"?
    Looking forward to hearing, and seeing, more!

    Welcome, Joan.
    It is great to hear from another proud Studebaker owner. Tell us how you came by this gem and send more photos. We love photos.
    Be sure to join the Studebaker Drivers Club (see the home page link at the top of this page), also your nearest local chapter. You will get lots of help and advice, learn about the many vendors out there and get lots of really interesting history. We even have some members on the Forum who once worked for Studebaker. Yes, they are still with us.
    FYI, I too own a President. Mine is a '55 sedan.

    Welcome to the SDC Forum!

    My first Studebaker, of more than 50, was a 1957 President Classic that had been used one year.

    Welcome Joan!
    I too own a 1957, Packard Clipper Wagon, which is a similar chassis to yours. Post more pics and you'll receive a lot of assistance here on this forum. I'm from the other end of our country, British Columbia.
    Cheers,
    Bill

    Studevair - I like your car. Is it a tri-tone or is that just lighting or some other picture/monitor artifact? I assume that you also have a Corvair. What is it?

    It is just the lighting, it is wedge wood and azure blue two tone. This is the car I bought at the Dunkirk NY swap meet a few years ago. I sold my last Corvair to buy the President as I only have enough room for two "toys" and I won't ever get rid of my Lark so the Corvair had to go to make room for the President.

    Studeviair: What the last four numbers of the serial number of your President Classic? I used to have one just like it and lost track of it after I sold it. Great car!
