Studebaker History

1928 Studebaker Commander

Share on:

This Studebaker Commander roadster participated in the AAA Endurance speed and endurance run in October 1927, Atlantic City, New Jersey. Along with two other Studebaker Commanders it established new speed and endurance records. This Commander traveled 25,000 miles in under 23,000 minutes at Atlantic City, averaging over 65 miles per hour. Prior to this event, no car had established records for over 15,000 miles. The car subsequently toured the country as part of a Studebaker promotional campaign.

The official time clock never stopped during the Commander's 25,000-mile run, not even for pit stops or driver changes.

After the three Commanders completed their 16-day run, Studebaker held every speed and endurance record for fully-equipped stock cars regardless of power or price. The Commander was accordingly labeled 'World's Champion' in performance. Taking advantage of its impressive title, this car toured the country as part of a Studebaker promotional campaign.

After restoration in 1988, this car took part in the Interstate Batteries Great American Race of 1989. It has since been on display at the Studebaker National Museum.
