For Sale: 1952 Studebaker Champion in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

STK 3175 1952 Studebaker Champion Regal Starliner Hardtop

After various unsuccessful partnerships, the first Studebakers manufactured solely by the Studebaker Automobile Company were marketed in 1912. Over the next 50+ years, the company established a reputation for solid quality and reliability. This 1952 Studebaker Champion Regal Line Starliner hardtop has been restored to its original glory. It has also been researched by the Studebaker National Museum and a document is furnished with the car that replicates the Assembly Line Production Order. The exterior was professionally re-sprayed in Studebaker Sand with an Olive Green top (1997). These are the original colors and the car is stunning. There is a generous allotment of chrome, steel wheels w/full chrome discs and beautiful wide-white bias-ply rubber. The interior was reupholstered in tan/brown cloth that is period correct for the Studebaker. The classic '50s dashboard holds a full compliment of gauges (speedometer inop) along with the original radio that is on the blink right now - may need a tube. Door cards, window glass, dash, headliner - everything is top-shelve. The Champion is powered by Studebaker's 169.9ci flathead six-cylinder rated at 85hp. The stamped engine number, 971,925, matches the Museum's documentation. (The engine numbers of the Champion model in 1952 were 911,501-1,004,001.) These long-stroke engines were well known for their durability and low-end torque. It is believed that this motor has never required a rebuild and it runs beautifully - Studebaker flatheads are the quietest and this one is superb. Everything under the hood looks original and the factory 6-volt electrical system works fine. The powerplant is backed by a 3-speed manual transmission with column shift. (This is the OD transmission, but the OD is currently inop.) The braking system has been seriously upgraded with manual front discs and a dual master cylinder. This Champion Regal Line Starliner is an amazing example of the Studebaker brand and belongs in your garage. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
