This 1952 Studebaker Champion Regal Starlight Coupe is a super cool
entry level classic car with an upgraded "Bullet Nose" front end.
When World War II veterans returned triumphantly from the War,
their appetites for new cars were voracious and the American car
manufacturers could barely keep up with this new demand. As a
result, the Studebaker Corporation emerged from World War II in its
best financial condition since the start of the Great Depression.
However, by the early 50s, the supply of new cars had finally
caught up and consumer demand had tapered off a bit. Studebaker had
reinvested a substantial part of its post-war profits into its
manufacturing facilities yet the company's profits began to taper
off. 1952 was Studebaker's 100th Anniversary and its Champion
models received a new look. Gone were the "Bullet Nose" front ends,
and introduced were the "V" shaped hoods and grilles. Nonetheless,
the Studebaker Bulletnoses remain a highly desirable look in the
collector car world, harkening back to a Golden Era for Studebaker.
Today, many restorers choose to put Bullet Noses on their '52s to
give them that classic look. In 1952, the Champion was offered in 3
trim levels, the entry-level Custom Line, the mid-level Deluxe
Line, and the premium Regal Line. One way to differentiate the
top-of-the-line Champion Regals from the lower level lines is that
the Regals have stainless trim running from the front fenders to
the rear. Under the hood on this Regal Starlight Coupe is an
upgraded GM 4.3 Liter V6 Engine with a Single 4 Barrel Carburetor
that likely has a bit more power and reliability than the original
Studebaker 6 cylinders found in in the '52 Champions. Dual exhaust
gives this Starlight Coupe a nice throaty sound. Anybody can drive
this '52 Champion because it is equipped with an Automatic
transmission. Power brakes with a dual master cylinder have been
added for improved stopping power. The exterior on this 52
Studebaker Starlight Coupe has been repainted in an eye-catching
Light Blue. Whitewall Radial Tires with Baby Moon Hubcaps provide
an improved ride on this classic Studebaker and complete the
exterior look of the car. The beige cloth bench seat interior
appears to be stock and provides a roomy interior 5 passengers. A
steering wheel spinner knob has been added to the stock steering
wheel along with aftermarket turn signal controls. The instrument
cluster has been tastefully upgraded to include a 120 MPH
speedometer, oil pressure gauge, temperature gauge, amp gauge, and
fuel gauge, and the stock-looking radio remains tucked under the
dash. If you're looking for a unique, entry level classic car, this
1952 Studebaker Champion Regal Starlight Coupe would be an
excellent choice. Give us a call today!
