        A friend here in central NE has a '42 Champion 4-door sedan in storage. The body is solid and the car is straight and complete, but it needs a complete restoration; it's not in running condition at present. I don't know if he will ever get to it.

                You do not need a Website to paste the Pics from your Computer "C" Drive to the Forum, it is easy using the Icon 3rd. to the right of the Smiley Faces.

                      Dealer window stickers didn't exist in 1942, but you can purchase a copy of the Production Order for your car from the Studebaker National Museum.

                        I thought window stickers were on all cars back then at dealerships? Anyway here are a few photos of my rare 42 champion deluxe model 90 blackout sedan. Hope you like it. It is featured in the MVPA Army Motors magazine this month in a two part story on the WWII Civil Defense and this rare car. The second part on the restoration of the car will be in the march issue. I think this is the only blackout model champion sedan left. Can anyone verify? I know there are 42 's out there, but is this the only blackout model built left? Thank You, please send all comments to

                          1942 President (Australian) Export chassis production figures.

                          (I also have production figures by body style.)

                          Production began August 20, 1941, ended January 31, 1942

                          Rare is a relative word. Certainly more rare than 1939-41 cars because of the shorter production run. Scarcity however does not equate to more valuable. Most people prefer the styling of the �41 over the �42.

                          Hi Richard,
                          Just like to know if you would have the export figures (to Australia) on the '42 Presidents, either as a complete vehicle and/or in chassis form for commercial use.

                            So far as I know that information is not easily accessible. If one had a lot of time and patience and wanted to go through 3500 production orders (on microfilm) the information is in there! Is it important?

                              Hi, I'm only aware of three other outside of mine. There was a fifth one in West VA and I stripped it for brightwork and a few parts as is was paper thin rusted out. It went to the crusher. There might be more of course, I just haven't seen any.

                              Here are pictures of mine. Having a hell of a time slowly getting it in shape to run. Maybe still a year off. I believe it's a custom cruising sedan/deluxe, with suicide doors. Number 12A.
