Studebaker President

By far, one of the most desirable closed cars of the Classic Era is the stylish Brougham. “Luxury has attained new heights in the Brougham,” proclaimed the John B. Judkins & Co. catalog when the body style was first unveiled. Designed by Studebaker’s Chief Body Engineer Jim Hughes, the Brougham model was very limited in production. Studebaker’s subsidiary at the time, Pierce-Arrow, used similar Brougham coachwork with subtle changes. Like all the closed 1932 Presidents the A-pillars were swept-back, eliminating the visor and adding to its aerodynamic looks. Standard equipment included a Stromberg carburetor, Delco-Remy ignition, Bendix brakes, freewheeling, ride control, a synchromesh transmission, vacuum distributor, hydraulic shock absorbers, metal spring covers, dual ashtrays, an inside sun visor and an airplane-style instrument panel.

This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in March of 2009 at the The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, Florida.

122hp 337 cu. in. L-head inline eight-cylinder, three-speed synchromesh transmission, semi-floating rear axle and four-wheel mechanical brakes. Wheelbase: 135"
