Cd was .41

HP was 120 gross
Torque 190 ft-lbs
0-60 17 sec
1/4 mi 20 sec

Not exactly a rocket by today's standards!! (You should see the figures for the six!! 169 cu.in., 85 HP @ 4k, 138 ft-lb at 2.4k )

Think about what was available at the time...Chevy only had a six, Ford still had flatheads, Chrysler had some interesting engines, though....As for looks, the rest of the manufacturers made Studebaker look 50 years ahead of its time. Their ability to use curves and edges like Porsche that taken alone do not seem to go together says something for Raymond Lowey. The sum is far greater than the individual parts.
