For Sale: 1948 Studebaker Land Cruiser in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is pleased to present this 1948 Studebaker Land Cruiser. "Sleeper" is a term used by hot-rodders to describe a car that looks innocent and even sedate on the outside but has hidden performance potential with a powerful engine under the sheet metal. That moniker applies to this restored 1948 Studebaker Land Cruiser four-door sedan street rod. Outwardly, the car looks stock, but all the original running gear was replaced with a Chevrolet V-8 mated to a GM Turbo Hydra-Matic 700-R4 four-speed automatic that was refreshed during the car's restoration in 2007 and it has approximately 13k miles on in since then. The original front bench seat was upgraded to bucket seats during the restoration when air conditioning, a tilt steering column, and a Lokar floor shifter were also added. The rear seat is done in the same red leather as the front and has a fold-down armrest. The trunk carpeting matches the interior, and the spare tire has a custom red vinyl cover. This 1948 Studebaker Street rod uses Mustang II-style rack-and-pinion front suspension with power steering that makes this hot rod easy to manage. The three-spoke steering wheel frames a 140-mph speedometer and auxiliary gauges. If you are looking for a classic cruiser with modern amenities, this is the car for you.
