This 1955 studebaker commander is different by design. Sleek, sporty, and low slung, the studebaker commander is the visual antithesis of so many us cars of the era. Us cars in the thirties increasingly focused on aerodynamics, but after the war, the infatuation shifted to power. As v8 engines grew steadily more powerful and gas prices continued to fall, the public was less concerned about cheating the wind with jelly bean pods, so various bricks appeared. Aerodynamics continued to play a role in european car design, however, and by the mid-fifties, the differences across the pond were dramatic. Enter the studebaker commander, legitimately able to claim a "european" look. The design made no compromises with power, either, as the 259ci v8 "bearcat" engine was good for 162hp. People want to believe they're unique, but the pressure to conform is great. Owning an uncommon car makes a bold personal statement, yet millions of people drive the same kind of car. Cough, tri-five, cough. This '55 commander ups the ante with a unique color palette both outside and inside. The finish is bright and smooth, a sunny yellow and charming aqua, the chrome is in great condition, and the white walls add great flair. The interior has been freshened, looking great and offering excellent comfort. The seats, carpet, dash, door panels, and steering wheel are in excellent condition. This '55 represents the opportunity to break free of the fetters of conformity.
