The Studebaker National Museum acquires the 1938 Studebaker State Commander convertible sedan

0

South curve, IN – The Studebaker National Museum this week acquired a 1938 Studebaker State Commander convertible sedan. This car is one of only 224 produced for the 1938 model year and is one of fewer than half a dozen known to survive . Studebaker’s 1938 models featured all-new bodies, with styling by Raymond Loewy Associates. Convertible Sedan models saw very limited production and were the most expensive models in the Studebaker line that year. The body was supplied by Central Manufacturing Company of Connersville, Indiana, which had previously produced bodies for its parent company, Auburn Automobile Company. The Museum’s convertible sedan is finished in tulip cream and trimmed with green leather upholstery.
