    It is interesting that you should bring that up, I was just researching that about three hours ago. as far as numbers go, I am not sure, I do believe, though that they manufactured the 1942 model year from august 1941 to january 1942. I am sure someone else with a bit more knowledge can expound.

      I don't have one but last year at a swap meet a few miles from me a rotten 42 was there. I suspect they are scarce.

        According to Wikipedia, in 1942 Studebaker produced 50,678 total automobiles. As far as specific models...that will be more of a challenge. Good luck!

        On the other hand, more scarce would be a 1946 model. Supposedly Studebaker only manufactured 19,275...again this is according to wikipedia.

          I had a 42 Champion a couple of years ago. While I had one and was watching for them and I did see a few. One Commander at the International meet in Rapid City stood out. Don't remember whose it was. Milton Jones got mine.

            I have two (2) one coupe Champion and a 4 dr Champion? Which brings up a question, I should know.
            Were there only Champion and Presidents in 42? I know that only Champions in 46.

              They built approx. 29,687 Champs. I do not have a count on the senior cars. I sold a nice Champ coupe last spring.

                    My Grandfather's first Studebaker was a 42 Commander.

                      Stephen Cade has a '42 President Skyway Sedan Coupe. It's a work of art on wheels. [^]

                        I bought a '63 Champ pickup from a fellow several years ago. He had a '42 President Skyway tucked in the back of his garage with 3 NOS fenders. I could not justify the $4500 he was asking for it at the time....

                          Indeed, Matt!! This one that was at Sacremento had to be one of my favorites at that meet!

                            The 42 model is very handsome indeed, I think I was told that it was a commander. It doesen't matter I think it's something that I want to get involved with, Mr. Quinn you are right the 41 model is the one everyone loves( I have one )My major concern is if the motor will turn. I was told that the floors are soild and that's a plus. I guess with gas the way it is the champ 6 is the way to go. I understand they get 24-27 miles to the gallon, WOW []

                              There's a gorgeous, black, '42 Commander sedan that resides (or used to anyway) in Nevada. I got to sit in that thing one when it made a showing at the LaPalma meet. I simply COULD NOT BELIEVE how well all the plastic had held up on the dashboard![]
