When is the last time you witnessed one of these passing in front of your windshield?

Studebakers were around for a longtime before 1948 and had a well-earned reputation for forward thinking development.

This model was introduced in 1947 and had many other makers chasing Studebakers tail for several years. This style was so much ahead of its time, the design didn’t change until 1952. Curved one piece windshields and the bullet nose front end made this model a stand out indeed. The price of admission for the 48 model..........$2,265.00

Our Land Cruiser has enjoyed the same owner for nearly 20 years and we have a file full of documents to prove it. The many receipts from over the years are a treat to shuffle through on a rainy Sunday. The past owner has protected this historical piece like it was the original Declaration Of Independence. To him, it was a major part of his life experience and he treasured her as such.

Of course the engine and transmission were completely rebuilt and are working as a well-oiled team. The car was treated to a body off restoration. If you wanted an automatic transmission, you had to walk until 1952. Of course the engine and transmission were completely rebuilt when the Studebaker was treated to a body off restoration just 3 years ago. The fresh paint is a stunning turquoise green that works harmoniously with the cars unique style. Of course the other areas of the car were not overlooked. A comfortable interior, new tires, brakes, glass and the list goes on and on. The car was certainly looked after during the restoration process.

Start the engine and she comes to life in a split second. Our 48 glides down the road like back when Truman was president and gas was just 26 pennies for a gallon. We have enjoyed exercising her around the block and now she stands ready for the next long-term owner to cherish her for another 50 years.

Join the rare and unique classic car set with this neat as a top 48.
