The goal of the President was to be the finest, most powerful, dependable, and luxurious car on the American market. The President was given a powerful eight-cylinder engine that was worthy of the elegant coachwork that it carried. The engine earned Studebaker a reputation in power, performance and endurance. The Studebaker President stayed in production until 1942 and later reappeared in 1955. By establishing land speed records, the President cemented its name in the performance department. The powerful eight-cylinder engine captured 114 records, 35 of which would stand for 35 years. The long bodies meant there was plenty of interior room for the passengers and no expense was spared when creating these automotive marvels. Following Studebaker’s acquisition of Packard in 1954, the President line was added as a new top-of-the-line model for Studebaker, slightly closing the gap between the Studebaker line and the Packard’s mid-priced Clippers. The President was an excellent addition to their economy car, Champion and mid-priced Commander lines, and helped Studebaker round out its product lineup. Studebaker's 1955 cars most prominently featured a large chrome grille. Under the hood, a 259-cid V8 with a four-barrel carburetor and dual exhausts provided the car with 185 hp. The new “Passmaster” V8 was well named, and was available with overdrive transmission or Studebaker Automatic Drive. Studebaker Presidents were the champions of 1950s American motoring, with smart engineering and clever design. This is a fine example of the "First American family-size sports car", Studebakers in general have very good club support, making ownership all the more enjoyable, and parts and maintenance are relatively simple to secure.
