1955 Studebaker 4-door and Station Wagon Ads

In 1955, Studebaker offered a  4-door sedan and wagon. The sedan and wagon could be had in 6 cylinder "Champion" form, in V8 "Commander" or upscale V8 "President" trim.

The early year V8 cars utilized an extremely short stroke 224 CID version with a bore and stroke of 3.5625" x 2.8125" which produced 140 HP (160 HP with a 4-barrel carburetor).  Mid-year, a 259 CID upgrade was made available with the same 3.5625" bore but a more reasonable 3.250" stroke for 182 HP when equipped with a 4-barrel carburetor and optional dual exhaust (standard in the  President 4-door).

For 1955, Studebaker total production was a respectable 133,827 units. 4-door and station wagon sales totaled 99,206, not broken out by body style: Champion Six - 39,673; Commander V8 - 43,878 and President/Speedsters - 15,655.
