Actual color photograph of 1947 Studebaker Regal De Luxe Land Cruiser Here's your style leader and star performer... 1947's thrill car...the postwar Studebaker! Men of conscience as well as competence build long life into every Studebaker The Studebaker craftsmen pictured are the Millers-S . R. and N. T. A 63-year-old father and 40-year-old son, they're old timers on their Studebaker jobs. For over 95 years, there has been a steady sequence of these father-and-son teams at Studebaker. MOST people know that there's just one show piece among today's cars. You see it pictured here. It's the postwar Studebaker. This is the fresh, new kind of style that people hoped to see in all automobiles by now. The daringly different de sign of this postwar Stude baker is in the best of good taste. And quite as thrilling as its low-swung beauty is the way it rides and handles. This is due to the sensa tionally advanced chassis en gineering of this Studebaker. All of the car's weight is poised in almost ideal balance. Brightest star of the superb new postwar Studebaker line is the ultra-luxurious, extra long-wheelbase Land Cruiser pictured above. It's a photogenic dream car that proudly leads a Stude baker fashion show of equally distinctive Champions and Commanders. Give yourself a treat to re member.
