Car description

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this 1950 Studebaker Commander for your consideration. For the 1950 year, the Commander was powered by a 246ci L-Head 6-cylinder which was mated to a 3-speed column-mounted manual transmission. Power is sent to the rear wheels which were a reported 102 horsepower in 1950.
This example has remained in a highly original condition wearing a coat of burgundy paint over a burgundy cloth interior. The interior also features a black dashboard with chrome trim and a tan headliner. Overall the car is in good conditioning despite showing some imperfections in the paint. Some cool features on this example feature a front exterior sun visor and suicide doors.
Styling of the new Studebaker Commander was executed mainly at Raymond Loewy's studios, with much of the work was actually accomplished by Virgil Exner. The car's appearance was stunning and somewhat polarizing, and the Starlight coupe's large four-part wrap-around rear window in particular so closely resembled a front windshield that comedians wondered aloud if the car was coming or going. Nonetheless, the design was futuristic and proved to be influential as the rest of the American auto industry was forced to play catch-up. While some criticized the "bullet nose" look as well, it didn't seem to bother buyers as sales remained high. Today these cars are not easy to find making them rare, easy to maintain, and certainly something that sticks out of the pack.
