Built in February of 1966, this Daytona Sport Sedan was one of the last vehicles to be produced by the famed company. After a long and historic existence that began with wagon manufacturing in the mid-19th century in the Studebaker company ceased production in March of 1966. The Studebaker name was always recognized for its innovation and quality and this Daytona Sport Sedan represents that ideal.
With the factory closing in early 1966 only 2300 Daytona Sports were produced and according to the consignor this is one of 45 left remaining. An excellent car, this Daytona Sports Sedan scored 397 points out of 400 at the Warwick Rhode Island 2016 Studebaker National Meet and took first place at Stowe in 2017.
Under this hood this Daytona Sport Sedan is powered by the Studebaker 283ci V8 engine paired with an automatic transmission. The combination of this larger engine in a relatively light body allows this vehicle to be a quick, fun driving car. Finished on the exterior in a brilliant white with a black vinyl top and red interior, the overall quality is best represented by its high judged scoring at a national meet. Options include power steering, power brakes, front disk brakes, am radio, bucket seats, center console, stainless steel exhaust and correct 6/70 Firestone tires.
