Cool Rear Window: 1951 Studebaker Starlight Coupe

Behold the magnificent Starlight coupe, a sassy 2-door body style that sashayed its way into the Studebaker Corporation’s lineup in South Bend, Indiana, USA, strutting its stuff from 1947 to 1955 alongside the Champion and Commander model series. This snazzy creation, dreamed up by none other than Virgil Exner, who’d previously kicked it with the cool cats at Raymond Loewy Associates, rocked the automotive scene with its sleek ponton style, a trend that had just caught fire after the smoke cleared from World War II.
