This is a 1949 Studebaker Commander Convertible submitted for Readers’ Rides.
This photo was from a 50 year-old negative. This is my early 1949 Studebaker Commander Convertible. I bought when I was 18 years old. I was the second owner of this 30,000 mile car which was equipped with skirts, OD and w/w/w. When was the last time you saw a ‘49 Studebaker with a continental kit? I made this and installed it myself shortly after buying the car. I sure wish I had this 1949 Studebaker Commander Convertible car back!
