For Sale: 1949 Studebaker Champion in Santa Ynez, California


Vehicle Description

Offered here for your consideration is a 1949 Studebaker Champion. The Studebaker Champion was produced from 1939-1958 and this car was a third generation design. After WWII, Studebaker was able to get back into making cars and was the first to offer a new design. The styling of the vehicle was done mainly at Raymond Loewy's studios which included work done by Virgil Exner who later designed the Chrysler and Imperial cars of the early 1960's. The new design included a wraparound rear window, flat front fenders and convenience features like back light illumination for gauges and automatic courtesy lights. The car is powered by an inline 6 cylindar engine, producing 80 horsepower. Champions from this era are very popular with collectors since parts are plentiful and cheap, the cars are economical to run, and the look is one of a kind. If you have any other questions please phone Dave Henry at 805-705-4924.
