GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1930 Studebaker Dictator for purchase. The Studebaker Dictator was produced from 1927 through 1936 with 1928 being the first full year of the Dictator production. The Dictator was designed as a replacement for the Standard Six. This new model amplified the reputation of the Studebaker Company by breaking 28 distance and time records during the end of the 1920s. The name Dictator was used because Standard boasted that it 'dictated the standard' and was conceived as a model line that other marques would imitate. In reality, the name Dictator was probably not a good choice. It made exportation to certain European monarchies difficult and Studebaker switched the name to the Standard Six when exporting. On the home front, many people viewed the name in the political terms and felt it was rather negative and offensive. With Hitler and Mussolini gathering power in Europe, 'Dictator' became politically incorrect and so the name was dropped in 1937.

This Dictator has been maintained, garaged, and driven in fair weather only by the same owner for over 30 years. It's powered by the original 221ci straight 8 cylinder engine paired with a 3-speed manual transmission. It recently gone through a full tune-up and is ready to go to a new owner. This is a very rare find! Please call or email for more details!
