RealRides of WNY #2444 ......................... 1951 Studebaker Champion


EAST AURORA, N.Y. - Yes, those are historic collector Minnesota plates on this 1951 Studebaker Champion. It’s owner told us that the car spent many years there before coming here to town, and eventually it will be going back there. This example is exceptionally clean, and (IMO) a seldomly seen Studebaker body style any more. The literature called it the “…lowest-priced Studebaker six-passenger sedan… a popular choice of families with small children.” Personally, I would have thought the kids would be more taken with the zany rear backlight of the Starlight Coupe (below)but I guess that’s why I’m not in marketing. We saw today’s RealRide at this past summer’s Toy Town Car Show.
