  • What year and model?

    I have memories of my Grandfather's old Studebaker coupe. I'm trying to figure out the year and model. I remember the small back window, the pull down handles, round brake and clutch pedals, it was a dull green/blue in color. It had a plane hood ornament...the '50 Champion is close but not exact.

    Can someone help?

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forum!

    If it had an airplane hood ornament then it was probably a 51. Did it look anything like this one?

        If the 50 Champion's close, then a 51 is the only option. The outer door handles didn't "pull down", but the inside handles did.

        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            No, that's not it...the back fenders are similar and the shape, too, but I'm thinking it's an older model, maybe the late '40s?

                47-49 Studes looked the same with the exception of the grill. No bullet.
