SUPER RARE TOP OF THE LINE STUDEBAKER, 259 V8, PS, AUTO, SUPER CORRECT, GORGEOUS

This 1955 Studebaker President marks the return of the legendary top trim name to this company, but the appeal here is far more than just history. Interesting lines, plenty of chrome, a glossy two-tone, and a correct look inside and out create a distinct classic offered now for a great price.

As the name suggests, the President line was Studebaker's top trim. It elevated cars like this President sedan into the kind of premium price bracket. You could walk into a Chevy dealer in '55 with the same money, and drive out a top-of-the-line V8 Bel Air sedan... and still have change in your pocket. That kind of higher status spent on the President is instantly seen in the styling. This is one of the most interesting years for Studebakers with a long front end that looked like it was reaching out to the road with a chrome hand. And there's even more terrific brightwork running the full length of the car. This trim does everything from highlight the sporty cut in the rear doors to give a subtle sunshade over the windshield. So this is an intricate setup that you know is a rare treat to find so complete and shining. The trim is even a dividing line for the white and red in this glossy ... Please ask for the full description.

SUPER RARE TOP OF THE LINE STUDEBAKER, 259 V8, PS, AUTO, SUPER CORRECT, GORGEOUS

This 1955 Studebaker President marks the return of the legendary top trim name to this company, but the appeal here is far more than just history. Interesting lines, plenty of chrome, a glossy two-tone, and a correct look inside and out create a distinct classic offered now for a great price.

As the name suggests, the President line was Studebaker's top trim. It elevated cars like this President sedan into the kind of premium price bracket. You could walk into a Chevy dealer in '55 with the same money, and drive out a top-of-the-line V8 Bel Air sedan... and still have change in your pocket. That kind of higher status spent on the President is instantly seen in the styling. This is one of the most interesting years for Studebakers with a long front end that looked like it was reaching out to the road with a chrome hand. And there's even more terrific brightwork running the full length of the car. This trim does everything from highlight the sporty cut in the rear doors to give a subtle sunshade over the windshield. So this is an intricate setup that you know is a rare treat to find so complete and shining. The trim is even a dividing line for the white and red in this glossy two-tone presentation. Even the wheels are well-matched with wide whitewalls and bright chrome wheels with Studebaker center caps. Oh yes, they really had an eye for coordinated authenticity with this one.

Inside, the two-tone continues with a full white interior joined by red carpeting. As true premium Studebaker, there's plenty of room in the back for you to carry family and friends. Plus, you get nice features like a fold-down armrest and grab handle in the front seatback. And the power windows are truly a rare treat for a '50s classic. Up front, the stylish factory steering wheel is like a '50s work of art. And it's thin enough to get a commanding view of everything from the factory gauges, to the auxiliary readout trio, to the upgraded AM/FM cassette stereo. It's all finished in a nice and bright presentation that lets you know someone has cared for this Studebaker.

The 289 cubic-inch V8 was the top motor for Studebaker in '55, so it's great to still see that correct displacement under this hood in this President. It provides that kind of torque to make this a smooth cruiser, and that's exactly what you want on a classic sedan like this. That's why it's also nice to have easy driving features like power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission.

Rarity, distinction, and style, this Studebaker President represents a great '50s classic car experience for a value price. Call today!!!
