YOU get more than the world's first genuine postwar automobile, when you become the proud owner of a new 1947 Studebaker.
You get a thrilling, new car that's a melody in metal - with extra low, extra wide, new bodies styled by Raymond Loewy, Internationally famous designer.
You get a car that's newly engineered throughout, from its wheels on up – a car with almost incredible new handling ease – with cradled riding comfort that surpasses anything you've experienced even in much more costly cars.
Studebaker was able to introduce these brand new 1947 cars months early. largely because of the teamwork and competence of the finest group of employees in the motor car industry.
It goes without saying that these 1947 Studebakers excel in quality They are manufactured to war-production standards of accuracy by responsible, able craftsmen, many of whom are members of Studebaker father-and-son teams.
Studebaker's exceptional operating economy adds its practical appeal to the allure of these distinctive new postwar Champions and Commanders.
All the customary body styles are available – and each excels in roominess as well as in smart appointments.

The 1947 Studebaker Champion presents an entirely new treatment of five-passenger Coupés. Designed by Raymond Loewy, Internationally known designer, the rear windows and windshield of this model form an almost unbroken expanse of glass, and provides virtually 360 degrees of horizontal visibility.
Its power plant uses an L-head, six-cylinder engine developing 80 horsepower at 4000 r.p.m., and has been moved nine inches further forward over the front suspension. A box-section frame, with kick-ups at both front and rear end makes possible a flat mid-section, and is extremely rigid in a longitudinal direction. Planar suspension, pioneered by Studebaker has been refined. Softer springs with ends floating on rubber cushions, allow the weight of the body and engine to receive full benefit of spring flexibility. A completely new braking system is employed which eliminates brake shoe adjustment, and assures a quick, firm stop throughout the life of the brakelining. Responsible for this is a small mechanism which moves the broke shoe outward in steps of .005 of an inch, providing a far finer adjustment than can be effected manually.
The body design, wind-tunnel tested at the University of Michigan Aeronautical Laboratory, features curved windows, rounded metal surfaces and smaller frontal area, reducing wind resistance at cruising speeds on the road.
