1951 Studebaker Starlite - Utah Showroom

There was also something terrific up front for 1951: Studebaker's first V-8. Commanders came with a 233-cubic-inch unit that was unabashedly inspired – some say it was a flagrant example of industrial espionage – by Cadillac's overhead-valve V-8 that had just been introduced in '49. Studebaker thus one-upped the Big Three by offering the first modern V-8 in a low-priced car. It would take Ford until 1954 to replace the ancient flathead V-8 (which dated back to 1932) and Chevrolet and Plymouth until 1955 to market their own modern V-8s.

This beautiful Studebaker Commander "Bullet Nose" with it's unique wraparound rear window has been completely restored. It is presented in a vintage burgundy and has extremely nice brightwork. The Bedford cloth interior is period correct and shows nicely. It is powered by the 233 cid V8 and Hydramatic transmission. The underhood detail presents itself as new.
