Raymond Loewy teamed up with Virgil Exner and they dreamed up the
1950 "bullet nosed" Buck Rogers futuristic styled Commander. It was
very different for the day, and somewhat popular, but led to the
conversation of whether the car was coming or going! Studebaker was
known for their innovative designs and use of different materials
for their interiors.
For consignment we usher in the 21st century with a beautifully
restored 1950 Studebaker Commander. Dressed to the nines on the
interior, beautiful paint, and sparkling chrome trimmings this
example is striking and is ready to rocket you into the future of
turning heads and winning trophies.
Bathed in near perfect Comanche Red with an Old Ivory roof that
includes the gunner turret curved rear glass for rear panoramic
views, this car announces you have arrived before you finish
parking it. The bullet nose chromed front end has Mercedes Benz
esque headlights flanking on either side, adorned in beauteous
chrome. Right down to the pointy clear plastic hood topper,
searchlight and chrome trimmed doors, beautiful bumpers and nearly
totally integrated rear quarters, this car screams forward thinking
design. Beautifully fine, Loewy was truly at the top of his game
when he dreamed up this car's design. Smooth flattened moon caps in
wonderful chrome are wrapped by thin whites on all 4 corners in
original looking bias ply tires.
Slipping inside we are greeted with a shiny dash with 3 large and
in charge gauges staring at you from behind the baseline leather
covered big steering wheel. The chrome trimming goes on and on for
the dash as it stretches across the front bench, which is covered
in very nice striped broadcloth. A rear bench mimics the front
seat, and nicely preserved wool carpet floods the floors
underneath. The headliner is nice and tight and stain free. Glass
door windows glide up and down nicely, and inside feels a bit
Under the bullet nose hood sits a 245.6 cubic inch inline 6
cylinder fed by a 1-barrel carburetor. The transmission is also
back to the future in automatic 3 speed form. A 4.09 rear gear
ratio whisks you down the interstate at cruising speed with
Rust free for the frame and flooring with only a minor spattering
of patina and road dirt noted. 4 wheel drum brakes are on to stop
you on a dime and independent coil spring front suspension works
hand in hand with leaf spring rear suspension to make you feel as
if you're floating into space with this wonderful Stude, dude!
This Stude starts right up and runs smooth as silk. It provides a
comfy ride with a total working and perfectly functioning example
from 1950. A very well buttoned up example in great condition.
