  • 1952 Champion Polished Patina on a HOT Florida day

    My 1952 Studebaker Champion got the polishing compound treatment today. Really brings out the natural age and patina on my beloved 2 door hardtop.
    Tahoe Green and London Gray make for a nice combination. Just wanted to share some 'after" photographs with you guys. Probably headed to the local Dairy Queen Cruise in with this one tonight. Join us if you would like...there is always a good crowd of nice automobile enthusiasts there. Exit 279 off I-75 just North of Tampa...go West and look for the cruise in (Dairy Queen) on the right. No admission fee just good friends and fun times. 5-8pm every Wednesday evening.

      Wonderful looking car. It is hard to beat the looks of a '52 hardtop.

              Very nice, I to kinda like the hardtops. Your chrome really stands out. Has the beltline trim been re worked?
              All the chrome looks really nice but I ask about it because I'm going to end up getting mine re chromed and would like a price guesstimate.

                    I love 52s! Anything I am thinking about one, all my friends discourage me as they say to do all the korean chrome on a hardtop would be around 8k.

                    I hope they are wrong. I have my hands full with the 55 I have now

                      Is that color combination original to the car?

                        I haven't seen Ed's car since 2008, but I think I remember it being an unrestored original.

                          What a stunning car, I'm with you trying to get that old paint to shine, my 55 Conestoga (Saginaw green) is the same way. Old originals are hard to come by. Is it a 6 or v-8?

                            Dean, I purchased the car in 2005 it was located in Rockford, Illinois after seeing in in the classifieds of "Turning Wheels". I have done nothing but just keep the chrome clean and polished by hand since. I honestly wouldn't be able to guess what a re-chroming might cost especially in California. As Matthew mentioned earlier, this car was shown at the International meet in South Bend (2nd Place) and is an original survivor with no restorations. Ed
