Did Studebaker make a mistake by not offering a convertible version of the so-called Loewy coupes? Several people seem to have thought so over the years, judging from the number of homebuilt hacksaw convertibles made from the streamlined Studes. The builder of this 1953 Studebaker Commander for sale on Hemmings.com seems to be among that crowd, though he also appears to have done a much cleaner job by forgoing the droptop mechanism for a pure roadster. As far as the Bonneville grille? You tell us whether that works here. From the seller’s description:
