Studebaker President 1955 Description

1955 Studebaker President 2dr Coupe Custom. Came from a large estate collection. Two-tone light blue with light blue interior. The body tag of 16G8 makes me believe the car started out as a Studebaker Commander V8. This car has been updated and modified with features of other Studebaker models. The engine stamped R3013 is believed to be a 289ci V8 Automatic from a 1963 Studebaker Avanti. The car has also been upgraded with PS PB and an underdash A/C unit. The dash is also not original but from a Studebaker Hawk and the fog lights are from a Studebaker President Speedster. Pretty cool. Paint is a 9 out of 10 with only a couple chips. There are some slight hazing scratches in the trunk lid as well. Chrome and stainless trim is almost perfect. No noticeable leaks. Motor runs great.
The windshield and passenger window are cracked and need replacing. The carpet also needs steam cleaning.
The front floorboards had rust. They were repaired poorly by just screwing in new panels over the areas and sealing it. It works but probably should be redone right. (see pics) There is no rust anywhere else.
Otherwise the car looks beautiful and runs and drives excellent. A good quality driver car.
