What a pretty car! I think the colors are great[:X] Only thing I'd change is go with chrome headlight rings...

One thing: The seller's name is pretty disturbing[:0] I'm surprised eBay allows it!

That is an eye catching combination. I used to think that 56-58 Studebaker sedans were just parts cars for the others, but as I have grown I appreciate them more. I just wish that they didn't have that strange little speedometer. I still have the 289 out of the last 57 a fellow in town gave me.

I wish I had room for it. My first car was a 56 Commander like this only in two tone green. It is real close to me too.

I also like the yellow/black paint, only wish it was reversed. The head light doors are screaming to be chromed. the two tone seats looks great. I think I could bid on this one, if Lancaster wasn't around the corner.

??? Doesn't bring up anything but the web page...

Was that supposed to be a link to an item?

I did a lot of driving behind those revolving speedometers when 1957 Studebaker Presidents were my everyday cars. I really got to like them. They are sort of the predecesor to a digital speedometer. That's another story. I do like the heads up digital speedometer, like on some BMWs. With the Studebaker speedometer, you only have to look in one exact spot to see the speed, and that spot is right up close to your field of vision out of the windshield. You don't have to look down and across a wide speedometer.
