  • 1956 Studebaker Champion Four Door

    Not seeing a lot of cars like this one. Is there a reason? Oh by the way I'm John and I'm new here. First post.

    I don't think 1956 production was particularly robust.

    I used to find '56s kind of homely, but I came around, and am now quite find of them.

        Thanks guys. Hey can you tell me if power steering can be added to this car? I am more wanting to know if there would be brackets to put the power steering on?

            I think power steering was available on Champions,and if so I'd bet the brackets are hard to come by.

              Welcome John. I remember your car when Jack White owned it. In fact, I even made him a solid offer for the car but he wouldn't take it .

                r1lark can you tell me more about this car? I am very interested in it's history. The story should not die. Can I call you or do you know how I can get ahold of this person Jack White? Thanks for giving this car life in history. I'm to understand it was a one person owner?

                  Well.....I guess Jack could have purchased the car when he was about 1 year old......but I doubt it.

                  I believe the seller 'embellished' the cars history somewhat.

                  Go here to find Jack's phone number: http://ncsdc.net/My_Homepage_Files/Page1.html

                    Beyond any other consideration, they were definitely some of the best built cars to ever exit the assembly line.

                        Here are the photos that Jack posted when he got the car in late 2013: https://plus.google.com/photos/10695...Oavpsz3_8qhswE

                          You are correct. This is the car. Do you know any more about it? Did it have problems? What price did he ask for it?

                            Jack had it for sale for $3500 for quite a while, and I think it went thru a couple of dealers since then.

                            I don't know that much about it, did look it over closely but didn't drive it. Call Jack if you want to find out more about it, he is a good guy.
