Doesn't really say it is a "REAL" convertible or a 2 door cut to make a convertible. I looked this morning on the internet and found a '50 Champ parade car that was made from a 2 door. Interesting car tho.

These cars were built and used as nothing more than displays in "Studebakers" restaurants. (Hence my "DiscoBaker" comment). I seriously doubt if any of them were meant to actually be driven.

Don't think this one is a Disco-baker, i've been to a few Studebakers in my time (no i did not wear hip huggers or bell bottoms) And most of the ones i seen only had 6 cyl. in them.

Most of the bullet nose's sticking out of the wall were fiberglass.

But if i could get this one cheap enough it would be a driver somehow. But ya some of them Georgia peaches would take a ride in it.

Isn't that a Champion dash?

Looks like the same bulletnose currently listed on eBay and noted in another thread on this forum.
