1950 Studebaker Champion Starlight Coupe

Marc D'Estout
Santa Cruz , CA

Marc's 1950 Champion Coupe was purchased in 1989. The car was basically abandoned, torn up and it had a cracked block. After making the necessary repairs, Marc put it on the road in 1990. It is a mild custom, lowered with skirts and whitewall tires. Marc also added 52 Studebaker taillights and a faux Lynx (snow leopard) interior with a center console. Some finned aluminum items dress up the flathead six. Marc says "She's low and slow but I drive her all up and down the California coast including out to the dry lakes. Her name is Stella".
