Jimmy Carter, Studebaker Commander

Jimmy Carter (1977-1981): Studebaker Commander "In 1948, Rosalynn and I bought our first automobile, a beautiful gray Studebaker Commander (Land Cruiser)," Carter told the Studebaker Drivers Club "Turning Wheels" magazine in August 1992. It would have looked similar to this Commander. "It turned out to be a superb vehicle - fast, smooth-moving, with never any repair problems ... The Studebaker has always been our favorite automobile, partially for sentimental reasons but also because of its qualities in providing us enjoyable and dependable transportation."
