__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________A Brief History of the 1953-1958 Studebaker Commander

The 1955 cars received a large chrome grille, nd under the hood Studebaker’s engine grew to 259 cid with a 50% increase in power. With a new four-barrel carburetor and dual exhausts, he “Passmaster” engine was good for 185 hp. The new V-8 was available again with overdrive transmission or Studebaker Automatic Drive.

In 1956, he super-low styling of the Commanders was dropped, nd a taller, ore typical hood and decklid were adopted for the family cars, along with wrap-around windshields which debuted half way through 1955. For the lower slung cars, new sub-series, he Commander Power Hawk and upscale President Sky Hawk were introduced on pillared coupe and hardtop coupe styling respectively. Engineers stroked the 259-cid V-8 to 289 cid and 210 hp. As a result, tudebaker switched to sturdier Ford-O-Matic based transmission.

The 1957 and 1958 cars were carried over, ith no real substantive changes except for the addition of a dual headlamps and a very attractive two-door hardtop with a taller body for 1958.

This generation of Studebaker Commander is very popular among collectors. The low-slung “Lowey” coupes are particularly desirable, s are the 259-cid and 289-cid motors. Parts availability is fairly good and club support is terrific, aking ownership quite enjoyable.
