Specialty classics are usually out of reach for most of us, so that's why you'll want to pay attention to this 1937 Studebaker Dictator. It's a distinct pre-war machine that has been updated/upgraded inside and out, and it's offered at quite an obtainable price.
A '30s era Studebaker is already intriguing just because it's a rare sight on the classic car scene today. South Bend made quite a stylish machine. The pointed nose with torpedo-like floating headlights has an attractive first impression; suicide doors are always fashionable; and the flowing rear fender line even extends past the trunk. And the details are great, too, like the body crease that wraps around the rear window and how the grille seamlessly extends along the hood. But those are what Studebaker made direct from the factory, and you can instantly tell that this is far from just classic restored to original condition. The metallic element in the steel blue paint, bright dual exhaust tips, 15-inch alloys, and much more announce this is a cool custom machine.
Inside are more instant indications of custom work. The seats are borrowed from a Buick that are half a century younger. Not only does the color coordinate nicely with the exterior, but also the pillow-top velour makes this quite a comfortable place to spend some time. In fact, this pre-war car has been updated with plenty of comfort features, including power front seats, power windows, power locks, and an AM/FM/CD/XM stereo. So with ample space to spread out in the front and back, and all these modern upgrades, you know this is a great classic for family and friends. But even when it's just you driving solo, you'll appreciate features like the wood-trimmed steering wheel and upgraded gauges also donated from a more modern Buick.
The Buick also donated its heart to this classic Studebaker. The 3.8-liter V6 is not only larger than the original motor, but it makes parts availability far easier today. This motor comes with the right added components, including an aluminum radiator, electric fan, and topped with a four-barrel carburetor. Out on the road, this one has a far improved ride thanks to upgraded easy driving features like power steering, power brakes, an automatic transmission, and an independent front suspension.
This Studebaker is a complete and thoughtful custom with head-turning appeal. Rarely is something this unique also so obtainable, so hurry up and call today!
