1949 Studebaker Champion Regal Deluxe Additional Info:

Excellent condition and well maintained,
California car with the last two owners maintaining it garaged for the last 15 years or so in Michigan and New Hampshire. No winter driving with salt roads.
This model is extraordinarily well presented and is a great daily driving example of the post WWII convertible, Taking this car to a cruise night or car show will almost guarantee you would have the only Studebaker droptop! All stock, with solid body, frame and floors, it would make a great addition to your car collection.
Be prepared for lots of smiles and stories from onlookers and strangers who remember when they had one or their parents or grandparents owned one.
Please take the time to check out the photos for the correct details of this stock 1949 convertible. A summary of improvements are as follows:
-Original engine previously rebuilt; 2779 cc | 169.6 cu in. | 2.8 L; 80 HP (58.88 KW) @ 4000 RPM. Three on the tree shifts seamlessly with Over Drive - vehicle drives very well and overdrive allows the car to easily be driven at 60 MPH. Smoke free exhaust.
-Front kingpins and steering suspension rebuilt.
-New stainless brake lines, master and wheel cylinders, brake shoes.
-Fuel tank removed, cleaned, sealed and reinstalled with new fuel tank sending unit and new fuel pump.
-Rebuilt carburetor with automatic choke.
-Studebaker paint code - restoration several years ago and still looks like new with a few blemishes if examined closely - notice the rear fender body parts were individually painted and then assembled with the fender welting like new - welting never been painted just as it would have at the factory - compare to quick, inexpensive repaints.
-Convertible top is heavy duty canvas and a special order with a rear cutout opening sized just for the two piece glass rear window. Operated easily manually. Boot matches interior.
-One piece curved glass windshield was an industry leader for this era.
-Period correct aftermarket rear fender skirts mount and remove easily with rear handle brace without marking the fender paint.
-Studebaker NOS amber fog lights with chrome plated brackets and model correct control switch on dash.
-Floorboards and trunk are solid.
-Original radio restored.
-Chrome bumpers and accessories are in excellent condition.
There are a few items which could use a little TLC and this is typically true for any driver quality car of this era. Rear seat has a tear and needs to be patched from the inside and rear passenger glass has a 1 inch crack at bottom corner. Clock doesn't work.
Clear New Hampshire Title.
