EXCLUSIVE: 1948 Studebaker Champion Convertible

From The Seller: I acquired this car as a birthday gift on my 30th. That was 42 years ago! It has never been restored. It was driven into dry storage at that time, I moved 30 years ago and the car was then driven into our pole building where it is now. My husband passed away and I reluctantly have to sell it. Sadly he only was healthy enough to clean it up, but not to do the restoration it needs. I don’t know much about its condition. I think for its age it is in pretty good shape though.

We hope this sweet Stude finds a good home! The car is located in Cecil Wisconsin and Cheryl is asking $5k. You can contact her using the form below if you’re interested.

  • Asking Price: $5,000
  • Location: Cecil, Wis.
  • Mileage: approx. 60,000
  • Title Status: Clean

    A real bargain at that price. From what I
    can see here, the tin worm didn’t eat very
    much of it. These cars were nice drivers
    and economical to run. Make mine butter yellow with a red leather interior. Cheryl
    won’t have much trouble selling this little
    gem. Not at that price..

    I don’t remember ever seeing one of these as a kid. All I remember are the later ones with the torpedo grill. I think it’s a great looker, and the design appears to be ahead of its time, based on other American post WWII car designs.

    I hope someone gives it the love it deserves, and restores it to its original 1948 Studebaker self.

    When was the last time you saw one of these? Nice rare find. This will make a really good restoration project.

    I wish I had room for it. Probably wouldn’t take much to have it running and driving as a survivor.

    It has the same naked lady hood ornament as grandad’s ’52 Nash Rambler Country Club Coupe. Did Nash and Studebaker buy them from the same source?

      This is not the correct hood ornament for a Studebaker.
