1955 Studebaker Commander Coupe
This car was purchased in 2014 from a seller in Minnesota. It is being sold as part of an estate sale. Unfortunately we do not have the paperwork showing when it was restored or what all had been done during the restoration process. It does have a clean Oregon title with permanent Minnesota collector plates.
This car runs and drives beautifully with a 259 V-8 with overdrive and 3 on the tree column shift. It has a four barrel carburetor, new dual exhaust from the manifold back, running 185 hp.
This car looks great and stands out. Runs very smooth and doesn't smoke or overheat. It's been garaged and everything work great all the way down to the horn. The am radio does work, but you can only use the push buttons to change stations. The knobs do not move the radio dial. The drivers side window does have about a 5" crack and needs to be adjusted and could use new rubber around the wing window. It can be a little tuff to roll up. The interior is in excellent condition and show no wear.
The body of this beauty is straight and chromed out! Like any car it does have a few imperfections. Which I have posted pictures of. There are a few chips around the drivers side headlight ring and a 1" scratch on the chrome front bumper. On the passenger side the front fender has a little chipping where it meets the door panel. Wheels and tires are in great shape. Tires are like new. The hood has been recently repainted, but if you look close enough the color is off just a hair. Most people don't even notice it.
As for the mechanics of this car, they are excellent with very few problems. The belts and hoses are in good condition and the valve cover gasket is dry. The rear wheel cylinder on the passengers side leaks a little. Motor is very clean, however there were a few drops of fluid under it when I moved it. Its been sitting in the same spot for a couple of months.
