'55 Studebaker for sure.
Looks like full real wheel opening so I'm thinking Commander (not President, which would have fender skirts).
Regal Ultra Vista 4dr V8.

Too blurry for definitive model identification re: Commander vs Champion.
Agree with 1955.

Thanks, Commander.
How 'bout this one from episode 3.10 @14:09?
Looks like a '55 coupe to me. President State, Champion Regal or Commander Regal?
Not a Speedster, unfortunately.

That one also appears to carry Regal trim but no way to tell model from distance/photo quality.
Agree it appears to be a coupe but same was available in all 3 lines.

Not a Studebaker.

righto -- rear fender skirts were on the '55 President 4dr only, is that right?

As for photo quality, unfortunately most of the independents are background vehicles only on this show .
A few exceptions like the '55 Nash and the '55 Hudson Rambler wagon we discussed at length.
Too bad, would have been nice to see a main character in a Hudson or Nash Healey or '55 Stude Speedster or '56 Packard, you know?

Same with the foreign makes -- just that Jag XK140 in one of the early episodes.
Otherwise imports are just background cars.

But it's nice to have a home page for the '55 Studes I find & thanks again for your help identifying them.

Correct. The coupes (and hardtops) did not carry fender skirts.
