Great job Kasli....really well finished and totally in keeping with the Studebaker image. That interior is soo retro and captures the spirit of the fifties.

Hope it drives even better than it looks.

Superb Kasli, looks better and better by the day. Just a question are the internal window trims Bakelite and are they supposed to be brown no matter what the body colour or they take on the tone of the dashboard? Again superb and my congratulations to your team and ofcourse yourself

Default Thank you

drives like a dream and the window trims are all metal and original. The trim does come in buffed chrome or same as the dash. We liked the look of the metal buffed Chrome so did that.

Thank you once again for the compliments .

WOW ...that is a 1933 Studebaker Convertible Sedan. Extremely rare even in the US.

Can you confirm if it is a straight eight or a six. Also some pics of the interiors and the engine would be great.

If its an eight its a President and if its a six its a Commander. It could also be a Dictator. Its hard to identify the exact model without infor on the engine.

Those light lenses are very very hard to find if not impossibel so please take extra care of this

Check this link for some nice pics

What is the history of thsi car and where is it currently.

Here is a pic of a similar car

This car was a regular at the rally and also was there this year. She was sold earlier this year. A pretty original car but not looked after well. Where is the car now ?

xtreme power, that is really a beautiful car. Wasif has explained how rare it is. Can you please give us the history of the car? Seems to be in remarkable condition. Those head lights look a million bucks. More pictures please.

Cheers

Seems like the person who has posted this ad is in some kind of confusion regarding what year the car is and then the price quoted. I would also like to mention that this is not one of seven cars surviving in the world or the only one in india.
