Old Cars Reader Wheels: 1939 Studebaker Champion coupe

Old Cars spotlights a reader submitted 1939 Studebaker Champion coupe

J.D. Woods sent us this pic of his impressive Studebaker. He had this to add…

Here is a picture of our 1939 Studebaker Champion coupe which we call Butter Cup because of her Tulip Crème color. We are the third owners and have documentation back to the Pennsylvania lady who purchased her new. The car was in remarkable condition when we acquired it only requiring the standard maintenance expected of a little driven vehicle. The biggest problem was the brakes which required no longer available tooling to adjust, but fortunately, "Skinned Knuckles" magazine had enough information for me to make what was necessary. The car is a delight to drive and commands attention although most people think it is a Ford or Chevrolet. It was featured at Greenfield Village’s Motor Muster along with another ’39 Studebaker in front of a recreation of a WWII victory garden a few years ago.
