1955 Studebaker President Speedster

As 1 of only 420 Speedsters built in the Los Angeles, CA (Vernon) plant, this is indeed one of the rarest of the rare.

This car was Studebaker's answer to the Corvette & Thunderbird with a twist, this car's a 4 seater. It was designed to compete with the 'Vette & Bird, but to appeal to sports car/hot rod enthusiasts with kids. 1955 was the only year for the Speedster; in 1956 Studebaker took a slightly different approach with introduction of the Golden Hawk.
