1955 Studebaker hardtop convertible
Note affixed to print: 'The long, low distinctive styling of the Studebaker hard-top convertible that has proved so popular throughout the world is accentuated in the new 1955 models by the sweeping effect of chrome molding that extends from the headlights, above a massive appearing grille, to the newly styled tail lights. The flowing lines of this President State Model are further brought out by hood and fender ornaments. The interiors are styled in diamond pattern nylon and rayon upholstery in complementary colors. Elegance of interior appointments and trim adds to the luxury of the high styling. The new Studebaker 'Wildat' V-8 engine with 175 horsepower gives this model superior performance and roadability. Lower prices prevail throughout the entire new Studebaker line.'
