First by Far with a Post-War Car: 1952 Studebaker Champion Custom Starlight Coupe

By Walt Tomsic – Managing Editor of OpenRoad magazine. 

OpenRoad saw its first issue mailed to members back in 2005. We’re now entering our thirteenth year of publication. That’s a lot of OpenRoads with a lot of cars featured, road tours recounted and guest editorials written by some of car culture’s most recognizable figures. From time to time, we’ll be selecting items from past issues to share here on Motor Mouth. For our first post, we’ve gone back to an AutoBiography article that appeared in the fall issue, 2012. The car is a 1951 Studebaker Champion Custom Starlight Coupe designed by Raymond Loewy.
