1953 Studebaker Commander Convertible
One-of-a-kind convertible version of the famous Loewy/Bourke coupe.
Studebaker never produced a convertible in this body style.
This one started as a Starliner hardtop, professionally modified with components from a '64 Dodge Dart.
It is a fully functional hydraulically operated convertible.
Dennis Gage of "My Classic Car" TV called it "the most beautiful Studebaker I have ever seen".
Featured on My Classic Car TV (S14E05), Rod & Custom, Turning Wheels, Gauge and Old Cars Weekly magazines.
