  • Another Studebaker to save- '40 President

    My son was driving by a salvage yard near Mt Airy, MD and saw this car out front for sale. Pics are poor, but it looks like a '40 President to me. He said it was pretty solid and the hood side panels are in the car. In case you can't read the info on the windshield, this is what it says- "For Sale, '40 Studebaker Asking $1,000 call with offer 301-829-7711 have salvage cert"

    Could be a '40 President or Commander depending upon whether a Six or an Eight. They looked identical except for the longer nose on the President.

      Did the Commander have the same glass tail lights as the President? I thought they were different on the Commander.

        The tail lights were identical on the Commander and President as was the entire body. You may be thinking of the Champion which was totally different in all respects.

          After I posted that I started thinking it may be a Commander. My son looked at the engine. I'll ask him if it was a six or an eight.
