The President came in two models for 1933 - the President, which was essentially the previous year's Commander, and the Speedway President, which was based on its 1932 namesake. The 'Speedway' name refers to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where Studebaker actively campaigned factory-backed teams in 1932 and 1933. Just over 600 1933 Speedway Presidents were built in all body styles.
The engine is an inline eight-cylinder unit displacing 337 cubic-inches and offered 132 horsepower.
The Speedway President was the company's most expensive model in the company's lineup. In the front was a slanting 'V' radiator and in the back was a Beaver tail rear end. Standard features included double inside sun visors, a Stromberg carburetor, mechanical power brakes, automatic ride control, ball bearing spring shackles, Delco Remy ignition, free-wheeling, and an automatic starter.
