  • Engine: 1939 Commander engine - what does it fit?

    I have two 1939 Commanders that have been stored since 1970 and a rebuilt engine with no miles on it rebuilt by an ex Studebaker mechanic about 15 years ago. What other Studebaker cars does this engine fit? (All will be for sale.)

    Fits 1932 and 33 Rockne, 36 and up Dictators and Commanders through 1959, as well as some trucks through 1961. Quite a run, don't you think?

      I would think that would be Commanders through 1950. Starting in 1951, Commanders were V8s. Of course even through 1950 the displacement of the engine varied (increased).
