This car was treated to a very extensive no expense spared restoration a few years ago. MS CLASSIC CARS has recently invested roughly $15,000.00 completely re-restoring the engine compartment, trunk compartment and undercarriage. We also gave the exterior and interior some attention to detail!
The exterior body is very straight with great gaps. The two tone brown paint color combination is beautiful!
Mostly everything on the exterior was restored or replaced and is in great condition. The glass appears to be new and is in excellent condition. All of the exterior lights works accept the rear plate light. Even the emblems and bumper pieces have the painted correct red stripes!
The car sits perfectly on orange steel wheels with chrome hub caps and brand new Lester 7.00 x 16 bias ply’s. These tires were $1600.00 alone. The orange wheels also compliment the exterior colors so beautifully!
The tan interior is very rich and elegant. Everything in the interior has been restored or replaced and is in great condition. Such items include the headliner, dash, steering wheel, door panels, seats, seat belts, carpet and floor mats. All of the windows roll up and down effortlessly. Everything works as it should including the clock. The dash temperature gauge isn’t reading correctly but there is a second temperature gauge under the dash that does work great. My shop did a little cosmetic work to the interior to bring it to the level you see in the photos below!
The trunk compartment is very neat and clean. My shop actually completely restored the entire trunk compartment. It has the spare tire and tire jack tools!
The engine compartment is highly detailed and home to the 250.4 cubic inch L head eight cylinder engine that produces 117 HP. Everything was rebuilt or replaced during the restoration. My shop completely re-restored the engine compartment cosmetically from top to bottom. They pulled the engine and everything else out so every piece could be stripped and repainted. The engine was also completely tuned including new sparks plugs, fluids, etc. Although it has the original style fuel pump an electric fuel pump was installed for easy starting. This car starts almost immediately and purrs like a kitten. It runs at 180 degrees all the time with no overheating issues. The battery is brand new. Search the internet for any 1941 vehicle and you’ll find not many engine compartments look like this one!
The engine is coupled to a 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive. This car cruises at 60 MPH smoothly!
The steering system is a symmetrical direct-action linkage with variable-ratio gear. It’s easy to steer and very tight!
The undercarriage is also highly detailed. Everything was rebuilt or replaced during the restoration. My shop completely re-restored the entire undercarriage cosmetically from top to bottom. The frame is a double drop steel with partial box section side rails and straight x-member. The front suspension is independent, planar with transverse leaf spring enclosed in grease packed metal cover with shock absorbers. The rear suspension is a solid axle, 8 leaf semielliptic springs enclosed in grease packed metal cover with Houdaille lever shock absorbers. This car drives and handles amazing down the road!
This vehicle has had a MS CLASSIC CARS classic car detail valued at $400.00!
“As my website indicates I’ve collected and sold a few beautiful Studebaker pickup trucks but never a car. The car you’re about to witness isn’t just any classic car but a very rare classic car! Studebakers are becoming very collectable and prices have been on the rise based on their important automotive history in the US. As stated above Studebaker only made 7,081 Presidents in 1941. There becoming near impossible to find especially in nice condition. This 1941 Studebaker President is better than nice it’s very nice! It was restored a few years with no expense spared. The exterior body is very straight with excellent gaps. The two tone brown paint is in beautiful condition and screams luxury. The orange rims with white wall tires fit it perfectly and make a statement. The suicide doors open to into a beautiful interior that is both classy and comfortable. There’s tons of room for rear passengers which makes them feel like royalty. The engine compartment is highly detailed and home to the 250.4 cubic inch L head eight cylinder engine that produces 117 HP. The engine starts almost immediately and purrs like a kitten. The trunk compartment is also highly detailed and home to the spare tire and jack assembly. The trunk is big enough to hold whatever you desire. The undercarriage is also very detailed many restored or new parts. This Studebaker drives and handles like a dream considering its 73 years old. You can bank on the fact while you’re driving it or showing it you won’t see another. I would challenge anyone to find a comparable vehicle for less. Get it before someone else does!”
