Description for Studebaker Commander 1953

Ground Up Restored Commander Restomod 450hp LT4 Corvette V8 Auto Leather A/C /// Upgraded with a hot LT1 and a reliable 4L60E 4-speed, this cool Studebaker is a unique, world-class weekender! A solid South Bend dandy that has no problem charming onlookers, this pristine Studebaker is the beneficiary of a $130K ground-up restoration that wrapped in 2012. The pros behind that professional rebuild were none other than Slatersville, Rhode Island's Xtreme Restorations. All-original sheetmetal is layered in rich Cashmere Taupe... 2-stage, which reflects a bright white roof. And that quality pigment highlights distinctive, retro character that reminds us just how cool vintage metal can be! Lift the hood and you'll find a $13K Lingenfelter LT1 that, with the help of $8K of Street and Performance bolt-ons, twists 450 horsepower into 430 lb./ft. of tarmac-twisting torque. Behind that mill, a 4L60E 4-speed makes excellent use of a 10-bolt Trans Am axle. That road-ready pumpkin drives a fully rebuilt chassis, which mixes a Trans Am rear-clip with a massaged Camaro front-half. Turns come courtesy of lucid power steering. Solid stops are achieved with the help of four AFCO discs. And all that proven hardware rolls on custom steelies, which spin 215/70R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/A whitewalls around NOS hub caps. The car's warm and welcoming interior looks straight out of boomtown, America, complete with tight leather, tasteful fabrics and ornate telemetry. The red and taupe cockpit is centered on big bench seats that feel soft enough to take a nap on. At the front of the car, a chrome-trimmed dash centers vintage AM audio above Vintage Air climate control. And the driver turns a classy steering wheel around a traditional shifter.
