America was fascinated with airplanes after World War II, and with good reason airplane themes and motifs quickly found their way into automobile design. The postwar Studebakers were prime examples, especially the 1950-51 redesign which featured a "bullet-nose" front end that recalled the propeller spinner of fighter planes and the round air intake of the exciting new jet planes. This 1951 Studebaker Champion Regal Convertible epitomizes was fully restored to show-winning condition by a Michigan collector. It is finished in the light yellow which Studebaker called Tulip Cream and has an inviting Tan leather interior enclosed by a Black cloth top. The 85hp Champion six-cylinder engine has an oil bath air cleaner, oil filter and drives through the automatic transmission which Studebaker introduced in mid-1950. A remotely-operated spotlight, wheel covers, wide whitewalls, heater, electric windshield wipers, hood ornament and clock complete its list of optional equipment and accessories. The engine compartment is carefully detailed and the car's condition throughout belies the age of its restoration. 1951 was the last year for Studebaker's popular and instantly recognized bullet-nose style, and this Champion Regal convertible is a star that is ready to be driven, shown and enjoyed in the coming season.
