Deluxe Starlight Coupe
The Studebaker Commander Starlight Coupe, designed by Raymond Loewy in 1954, was the first all-new Studebaker since 1947. Although it had a relatively old-fashioned V8 engine beneath its hood, the low-slung European design was far ahead of its time.

This car was first purchased by William Babich of East Pittsburgh and remained with him for 60 years. He cared for this car so much that only his wife and a niece were allowed in the car - and they could not wear any clothing with buttons or zippers for fear of scratching the paint. From 1954 to 1959 Babich put just 6,683 miles on the car, using it only during the summer months. In 1960 he stopped using the car altogether, but would start it once a month and then drive it once a year to have it inspected. From 1963 to the present the car has only covered 80 miles. After William passed away, the Babich family made sure the car went to someone who would treasure it as much as William had done.
