  • Body / Glass: 55 Champion

    I am new to Studebakers and the Forum. I recently bought a 1955 Champion that has the butter knife trim on the sides like a President. I seems to be completely stock as well as the paint and upholstery. What model do I have, Deluxe, Regal, Custom? The ID numbers are 16G6 K5 and the VIN is G935423. What can you tell me about this car? Thanks.

    K5 Regal Hardtop; makes sense. Top of the line trim on the Champion.

      16G6 K5 Tells us that it's a 1955 (16) Champion (G) six cylinder (6) hardtop (K) and (probably ) Regal (6)

      The serial no. tells us again Champion (G) and the 6 letters are in sequence, tell us that it was Assembled in Los Angeles, (beginning with 932,501.)

      I had to look up the beginning number, Rockne beat me.

        To: sactorandy,---- You're sure starting with a nice, straight, and very original car. Best of luck with it!

          I see a dent in the right front fender, sun damage, clear plastic covers over original seats and no rust.
          It does the heart good to know some folks are still that lucky.

              I really like the colours! (but I might be a little biased)
