Studebaker's Special Six was introduced in 1918 and remained in production until 1926. It was positioned between the company's Light Six and Big Six. The 1924 version of the Special Six featured a nickel-plated radiator shell and cowl-mounted inspection lamps. The touring car, such as this example, also featured nickel-plated grab handles and running board kick plates. The Special Six was powered by a 288.6 cubic-inch six-cylinder motor that developed 29.4 horsepower. The car's transmission was equipped with Timken adjustable bearings. Wheelbase size measured 119 inches. The Studebaker Light Six automobile was introduced in 1918 and was produced until 1927. The car was renamed the Studebaker Standard Six in August of 1924. Both the Light Six and the Standard Six were the least expensive of Studebaker's models while in production. A large variety of body styles were available for this vehicle during its period in production. The Light Six was renamed the Studebaker Standard Six Dictator in 1927. This was in preparation for the 1928 model year when the vehicle would then be known as the Studebaker Dictator.

The opened two sided hood shows off that 289 cube engine. The nickel plated shoe scraps with the Studebaker logo is typical of the cars of this period. New canvas top with bent wooden bows hover over the fine new upholstery. This Studebaker rides on wood spoke wheels and the spare tire is mounted on the back but in front of the gas tank. This is a two-tone car having black fenders with the body painted in a dark green accented with a gold pinstripe. Very luxurious is this ancient touring car and a fine and rare example of another model that Studebaker produced. By 1924 open touring cars were increasingly becoming a thing of the past as more consumers preferred the closed car bodies. Thanks very much for viewing this 1924 Studebaker Model EL Standard Big Six Touring Car.
