The Starlight coupe was a unique 2-door body style offered by the Studebaker Corporation of South Bend, Indiana (USA) from 1947 to 1952 in its Champion and Commander model series.
Unlike other pillared two-door sedans that used two side windows separated from the rear window by roof supports, Studebaker created a roof rounded at the rear with a wraparound window system that provided a panoramic effect similar to a railroad observation car. The curved window was achieved with four fixed panels of glass. The roof was supported by two wide pillars (sometimes called “B” pillars) immediately behind the doors and in front of the wraparound back window. The body style was originally named “5-passenger coupe”; however, for the 1949 model year it was renamed Starlight Coupe.
This car is powered by a 226 ci engine with a 3 speed manual transmission.
