This 1939 Studebaker Commander floats down the highway, does not smoke or use oil and is a pleasure to drive thumbs-up. It has won trophies at car shows in the original survivor’s class, in local parades and car club excursions up to 70 miles away. It has been garaged in’s entire life and it shows. I have tried to give the most homest description that I can but may have forgotten something. If you have questions please ask and I will respond. I have a reserve price in mind that is more than fair. Please keep in mind that this car is 77 years old and they didn’t have turn signals back then and it doesn’t have them now. It does have vintage from seat belts. There is more work involved driving a car from this era. Because of my work schedule please call around mid-day CST. 1-316-737-6048
