  • My Studebaker, a 1953 Commander

    Hi everyone,
    After typing the entire message below I see I've made a mistake somewhere and will have to try the picture again. Give me a few minutes.

    I'm trying to post a picture on the forum for the first time. I've been reading the forum for a long time and got a new lap top for my birthday and have been self teaching the ins and outs of posting etc.
    I have been an SDC member for over 33 years and this my latest and only Studebaker at this time. Like most of us I have had several diffferent cars and trucks in the past. I bought this car in OK in 2003 off an internet web site. The car was purchase new in Ponca City and spend most of it's life in Ponca City or Blackwell, OK. I'm the third owner. The first owner bought it for his sons use. At some point in the life of the car he parked it in a barn and took the engine apart. He never finished the project. The second owner bought the car in the eighties and did a complete amateur restoration on the car completing it in 1990. the second owner never drove the car very much but keep the condition of the car up.
    The second owner advertised the car for sale in May of 2003. I asked for pictures via email, liked what I saw, made the trip over to Blackwell and bought the car.
    The car is a 1953 Commander Regal Hard Top Convertible (per the original bill of sale) with automatic. The color is Olympic gray over Tahoe green. The car is not 100% correct but is very presentable as is. I've replaced a few parts and continue to buy the items I need for it as I can.
    One other thing about the car that told me I had to have it was it's final assembly date is my 3rd birthday.
    I was very happy to have the Commander featured on the Madd Doodlers Studebaker calendar for next year as 'Miss September'
    Hope you enjoy,

    You had pasted the url for the album cover rather than the url for the actual photo. Keep playing with it. Hit the "preview" button before you post to make sure you've done it right.

    NICE CAR! [][8D]

            Thank you for getting the picture to come up. When I right clicked on the picture I did not get the "open image in new window" chose. I got "open link in new window" chose instead.
            Thank you again,

                That is one beautiful car. I wish my '55 looked that good. I've
                always thought the '53 Stude was the most beautiful car ever
                produced.
