Fine Car Co is selling at auction this 1939 STUDEBAKER CHAMPION COUPE


The Champion range of 1939 probably saved Studebaker from bankruptcy! When the Champion was introduced in mid-1939, it proudly wore Studebaker badges and was marketed right alongside the big senior models. It was a real Studebaker, and with pricing that began at just $660, the Champion gave a big boost to Studebaker sales, pushing the company into the top 10 in production volume for the first time in nearly a decade, which had been the plan of Financial whizzes Paul G. Hoffman and Harold S. Vance to put the company back on track.

The car was styled by industrial designer Raymond Loewy (who created the famous Coke bottle shape) produced in the USA they were the style leaders of their time. It was somewhat small, but very roomy light and had great fuel consumption.

Interesting technical features were the Planar independent front suspension and variable-ratio steering.

This fixed head coupe was exported new to Portugal and was restored there some years ago so has spent most of its life in a dry climate. The body appears never to have been welded.

Presented in period era Beige, this car is in truly magnificent condition outside, inside, underneath, no rust whatsoever anywhere and is as sweet as a nut you can't even hear the engine run.
