1953 Studebaker Commander

The Studebaker Commander is the model name of several automobiles produced by the Studebaker Corporation of South Bend, Indiana (United States) and Studebaker of Canada Ltd of Walkerville and, later, Hamilton, Ontario (Canada). Studebaker began using the Commander name in 1927 and continued to use it until 1964, with the exception of 1936 and 1959-63. The name was applied to various products in the company's line-up from year to year.

For consignment basically a parts and mechanicals car, I would not even go as far as a barn find on this unit, which offers up plenty of rusted panels, missing chrome, and a very unstable undercarriage. A consigner stated 37,000 miles on the engine which does currently not run.

Extensively rusted panels, and steel hood, trunk lid, pretty much everywhere it is seen. Brite work and chrome are pitted and have lost most of their shine.

A tan vinyl split 50/50 bench stretches across the interior in front of this car, and behind it is a matching rear bench, which are in fair condition. Carpeting is fair but faded a bit up front. Dash presents with heavy corrosion, non-working gauges, and bad metal paint on the interior.

Equipped with a 232ci V8 with a 2-barrel carburetor and a 3-speed manual transmission that sits in its corroded engine bay.

Extensive surface rust, as well as invasive rust is seen throughput. It appears the original floorpans were rotted out and repaired with inserting floorpans. Lots of invasive rust is noted on the frame, door panels and wheel wells.

We can sum it up here and give you a report that this is a parts car, with possibly the mechanical end being the most desirable asset, in an otherwise not too promising environment.
