Classic Car Overview

Meet Penelope: Our absolutely charming 1953 Studebaker Champion Deluxe 4 door sedan. 

We have put over 10k into her since I bought her including new radiator, gaskets & hoses, master cylinder, brakes, 4 inch custom white walls, new seals and gaskets, front & rear rebuild, transmission serviced and OD rebuild, fuel system rebuild, starter rebuild with electronic assist, safety upgrades include six seatbelts installed, new weather stripping throughout and so much more.  

Original paint, some tiny chips & rust spots here and there but nothing crazy for a almost 70 year old lady!

Super clean under the hood with dual carbs. 98 percent of her restored. Interior door panels are all that’s left to put her in original condition. 

6cyl Runs smoothly and transmission shifts smoothly. Runs like a little top. 

Clean title with current registration. Worked on by 2 local classic car mechanics & can provide work history receipts.

Located in Southern California. Have more photos and videos. 

Asking 15,800 (almost 1500 less than I have in her total) We are selling her to fund and RV purchase. 

Please contact me for more information or to arrange an appointment to drive.

Thank you for your consideration.
