1956 Stude­baker Cham­pion-Pres­i­dent

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

While plenty of nos­tal­gia freaks think only Chevro­lets and Cadil­lacs sym­bol­ise 1950s Amer­ica, this in­trigu­ing 1956 Stude­baker shows that phi­los­o­phy is far from the truth. The lat­ter days of Stude­baker were trou­bled, with the smaller man­u­fac­tur­ers in­clud­ing Ram­bler and Kaiser all fac­ing the might of the ‘Big Three’. Sold new to South Africa (as a re­sult be­ing right-hand drive), it was im­ported to Bri­tain in 1989. A bare metal re-paint was car­ried out in 2012, while the in­te­rior has sur­vived well and is mainly orig­i­nal. De­fifinitely worth a closer look.
