This classic car runs well and has many extras (fender skirts, original rims, original owners manual, etc.). We have all maintenance records back to 2004.

Truly vintage! 1955 Studebaker President, 4-door sedan.

* Excellent running condition. Starts up every spring after being covered in the garage all winter.
* All original under the hood (only exception is an electric fuel pump installed in 2015).
* All glass is intact.
* Beautiful chrome.
* No rust (always been in Colorado).
* 259 "Passmaster" V-8 engine.
* Automatic transmission, 2 speed.
* New 6-volt battery.
* Original miles 74,900.
* Original colors - "Encino cream" and white (we have the original paint sample sheet).
* Copy of original production order.
* 2 original fender skirts and 4 original rims (neither on currently).
* Original 1955 owner’s manual.
* After-market portable swamp cooler - Bon Aire brand.

* Typical old car electrical issues (i.e. dash clock disconnected).
* Front chrome grill - small crack on drivers side, pocks on passenger side.
* One small (3 inch) tear in ceiling lining.

Studebaker Presidents are terrific artifacts of 1950s American motoring, with smart engineering and clever design. Studebakers in general have very good club support, making ownership all the more enjoyable, and parts and maintenance are relatively simple to secure.

You copied the Link to the post - well done...   You should always clarify the car/post is :   NOT MINE

You can edit your post - in particular the title, to add the price and the location of the car (but you have it above - so well done...)

I have captured some of the pictures - not all - the original post has close up shots of details and imperfections - but not great overall (current) pictures of the car (I presume the interior front seat is more current - owner did not move the car out of the garage).

Thanks for posting!

Mid-year '55: wrap around "Vista" windshield. Owner is very optimistic on value, imho.
'55's chrome snout was unattractive even on the Speedster. A bulgy '55 4 door President, even worse. Give me a '53-4, or even Duncan McRae's clever  '56-7 restyle.
