  • Where would be the best place to find a 1958 sedan?

    I have a weird love for 1958 Champion-Commander-President sedans because, in my mind, they are Virgil Exner meets Studebaker (thereby creating an intriguing study into design). Point is, where would be the best place to find and purchase one once I am ready? I am willing to be realistic as these things aren't exactly common but I have my hopes anyway.

    Well, I think you've just cranked up the SDC Locator Service. I'll be watching ol' salty Michigan for one! Actually, there was a really nice '58 sedan in southwest Michigan up for grabs last year for $2900! So, you never know..

          OH MY is right! That 58 Packard does look tempting!

            Is there an SDC member in N. Wisconsin for a scouting report?

              That Packard is way overpriced. Needs a ton of work

                Wow! It may be over priced, but it certainly could become a really cool ride. I am glad I do not live anywhere near the location.

                  Try to locate a time-travel device in good working order, set it to go back to the fall of 1957, find a local Studie dealer, and you'll have your pick!

                    Mine was found about a decade ago, in a barn in the middle of a pecan orchard in rural south Georgia, where it'd been sitting for 35 years. We dragged it home, got it going, and I drove the snot out of it as a daily driver. In 2011 I sold it to a kid in North Carolina who still owns it. I think I had more fun in that car than any other I've owned.

                      Nice to hear more about that 58 sedan that brought you into the Studebaker world, mbstude!

                        There was a decent '58 Packard here in the Spokane area a while back. Rest assured, I will not be bidding against you for it.

                          That makes two of us. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The side view in post #10 looks like a South American design studio merged a '57 Plymouth front end with a '57 Chevy back end. But I too have an inkling for the odd car so I guess we all get a "pass" from time to time.

                            Having been privileged to drive Steve and Kathy Porter's sharp '58 Commander 4dr on a number of occasions, I can certainly confirm they're a very nice old ride indeed, and you won't regret getting yourself one...good hunting! Incidentally there was a Plymouth in the Stude studio for study during the period in question...they definitely were going for the Mopar look.
