We know you Studebaker guys are passionate about your cars, especially the unusual ones like this 1958 Studebaker cop car sedan. Wearing period colors, and a ton of chrome, this cool cruiser is sure to stand out at any car show and provides enough flathead I6 power to back it up. The first thing that a real Studebaker collector will notice is that it is titled as a 1957 but it has a 1958 bodystyle and 58G-W4 tag in the engine bay, more than likely a clerical error at some point with all that said it has a clean title in the dealers name. Not sure if that is original colors, but what would you expect in a Studebaker Cop Car of the 50’s. Quite honestly, it works rather well with the somewhat radical-looking body style, it looks exactly right. The Stude’s many unique details are a big part of its appeal, many of which have been borrowed by customizers for decades; just check out the peaked tail lights, and the hooded quad headlights. And no discussion of a ’50s car is complete without mentioning the chrome and stainless trim, all of which is in okay shape. The interior’s mix of colors, textures, and materials looks very period-correct and the wide bench seats are a simple contrast to the high-impact bodywork. Black carpets, two-tone door panels, and a few details painted blue highlight the comfortable interior. The cloth upholstery remains in good condition with only light signs of use and age while the back seat looks almost new. ALL THE LIGHTS AND SIRENS WORK! This is ready to drive to your local car shows and show off this head turner and smile maker. The original AM radio remains in the dash and while it doesn’t play music, it does power up so perhaps a repair will be easy. Seat belts will hold you in as you chase down bad guys, always a welcome safety improvement, but otherwise this Stude remains pretty much as the factory intended. As you’d expect, the trunk is truly massive and offers, a full-sized spare on fifth wheel, and even a jack assembly. The engine bay is very stock, with flathead I6, 2-barrel carburetor. It starts easily and runs well with a muted flathead soundtrack from the exhaust system, and the 3-speed manual transmission shifts well and generally stays out of the way. Whitewall radials wrapped around color-matched steel wheels and hubcaps add an air of distinction to the big Champion and complete the ’50s look. I added additional photos of paint and scratch areas, want to be transparent that this is not a show car but a absolute attention getter. Bid today!
