Very clean, minus some black silicone that has dripped out of the dash from who knows what. Original spare tire and tools. Brakes and tires in good thick shape. All glass is in good, clear, uncracked shape. No scratches. As for the chrome, about half of the trim is pitted. The rest is clean and clear. Specific details and pics can be provided upon request.

A little history copied from a previous listing:
The 1953 Studebaker Commander once again proved the forward-looking genius of Raymond Loewy, the world famous industrial designer hired by Studebaker to position the brand as a design leader. Unquestionably the sleekest coupe of 1953, it was so advanced that the body formed the basis of many Studebaker models all the way through the handsome 1964 Studebaker Golden Hawk.
Since 6-volt originality has been maintained, a heavy-duty Cadillac starter was installed due to its proven ruggedness in these applications. Major re-wiring of the car, and repair of the overdrive were also done. New upholstery, carpet, and headliner were major interior upgrades.
This car is located in Horicon, WI 53032. Specific detailed pics can be supplied upon request. Inspections are encouraged. This is offered as a private sale. Therefore, no warranty is given.
