• If it lived its whole life in Montana (dry climate and no salt used on the roads)it probably has very little rust. Although that driver's side quarter panel looks a bit suspect. Restore it or maybe an LS1/6 speed swap but keep it patinamobile on the outside?

  • The sedans are shortened wheelbase cars (114" for the sedans vs. 120" for the coupes) that are taller and boxier than the coupes, and don't have anything near the elegant proportions of the longer wheelbase cars. The proportions of the sedans are closer to a tri-five chevy than a Loewy coupe, as evidenced by the way Studebaker modified them for 1956-1958 with new front and rear sheetmetal, momentcar.com/image-modelYear/14572-1956-commander-2.jpg.html. Of course, the coupe you can buy for $2000 will be much closer to yard art than a working car.
