This superb looking 1940 Studebaker Champion is for sale in our Louisville Location. The success of the Champion in 1939 was crucial 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. This beautiful example has been treated to a frame off restoration. The engine and transmission have been rebuilt, the rear end has been rebuilt, so that the complete drivetrain only 319 miles on it since the rebuild. The Laurel Green interior is new along with fresh exterior Colleen Green Light paint. All the chrome and trim is in excellent shape making for a very well done restoration.
