“The 1955 Studebaker Speedster was called a sports car because almost any sporty American two-door auto could be called a sports car in the mid-1950s, especially if it had wire wheels.
…So did the Speedster, which has doubled in value since I last looked in January 2002. It was valued at $21,275 if in excellent condition then, but a Speedster in such shape now is worth $42,550, says the Collectible Vehicle Value Guide.
…The $3,253 Speedster officially was part of the automaker’s top-line President car line, and was the most costly Studebaker.”
