Our Atlanta Showroom is pleased to offer this 1939 Studebaker Champion. The success of the Champion in 1939 was imperative to Studebaker's survival following weak sales during the 1938 model year. Unlike most other cars, the Champion was designed from a "clean sheet", and had no restrictions caused by necessarily utilizing older parts or requiring the subsequent use of its components in heavier vehicles. Market research guided the selection of features, but a key principle adhered to was the engineering watchword "weight is the enemy." For its size, it was one of the lightest cars of its era. Its compact straight-6 engine outlasted the model itself and was produced to the end of the 1964 model year, with a change to an OHV design in 1961. The Champion was one of Studebaker's best-selling models because of its low price and styling. The car's ponton styling was authored by industrial designer Raymond Loewy who had been under contract with Studebaker for the design of their automobiles. During World War II, Champions were coveted for their high mileage at a time when gas was rationed in the United States. This car runs on a rebuilt 1985 IROC Camaro engine and a 700 R-4 transmission. She has power brakes, power steering, AM/FM radio, CD, front disc brakes, mustang II front end, leather interior, and alloy wheels. Come taste a little of the past mixed with the present.
