40 HP, 207 cid, L-Head In-Line 6-Cylinder Engine, 3-Speed Transmission Chassis No. 1027002 Studebaker was a rather unique carmaker in that they didn't need to wait for a "model year" to start, but introduced its new models when they were ready to come to market. To that practice came the introduction of the Model EJ in April 1920. With improved valves, positive feed engine lubrication, a transmission lock and new single-disc clutch, this was one of the best performing cars of the day. This 5-passenger touring car had a base price around $1,485 when new, and offered its owners reliability that Studebaker had built its reputation on, as well as up-to-date styling and comfort for its passengers. Treated to a full restoration this sharp looking example is finished in dark green body with the louvers on the hood receiving a tasteful pin-stripe while the fenders are done in gloss black. The interior is fitted with pleated leather while the top is in black fabric and retains its oval back glass with beveled edges. Interiors, especially the dashboard of these cars, were rather utilitarian and this is an example of that practice with only the oil pressure and ampere gauges flanking the original Stewart speedometer/odometer, which currently shows 32,850 miles. When inspecting this car be sure to check out those unique Linex lenses in the headlights as well as the Studebaker logo on the winged Moto-Meter hood ornament. Also found on this car are the four step plates, designed to allow passengers to clean the bottom of their shoes before entering the car. Vintage Studebakers are sought after in today's car market due to their good looks and ability to ply modern highways at a relatively safe speed. This is a prime example of one of the best cars from this era, and the reason that nearly 28,000 copies were produced in the 1921 model year.
