COMMANDER — MODEL 3H — The Commander styling changes were essentially the same as those for the Champion. A two-door hardtop was also added to the Commander lineup. Commanders had the same basic new grille as Champions, but a V-shaped Studebaker crest was mounted above the grille molding. Commander and Champion instrument panels were different. Since 1950, the Champion's instruments had been enclosed in a single enclosure, while the Commander's, since 1947, were held in three round dials. The model identification was located on the left front edge of the hood and on the deck lid. The Land Cruiser name was moved from the front fender to the deck lid. Front fender ornaments were standard on State models. Nineteen fifty-two marked the last year that the 1947 body styling was used. It was also the last year Studebaker used ‘suicide’ rear doors on four-door sedans.
