1952 Studebaker Commander
The 1952 Studebaker recieved a restyled front end, gone was the "bullet nose" of the 1950 and 51 models.
The new style split grille on this Commander State convertible is protected by a massive set of bumper and grille guards.
The Commander was the top of the line series Studebaker in 1952 with the Champion being the entry level series.
Commanders were powered by a 120hp, 232 c.i.d. V8 engine.
Except for the Land Cruiser sedan Commanders rode on a 115 inch wheelbase and had an overall length of 197.5 inches. Land Cruisers were a little larger in both dimensions.
This is one of the antique cars and trucks we saw at the 2009 Studebaker Drivers Club National Meet in Cedar Rapids, Iowa

The hood ornament was rather elegant in it's simplicity.
Each front fender carried one of these just behind the headlight.
We don't own these cars, we just saw them at car shows and snapped a few photos.
