y 1917, the Studebaker management had decided it was time to break completely from the old designs and to build a completely new line of motor cars which would satisfy a broad range of demand worldwide. In May, after suitable reorganisation under the leadership of Fred Zeder work was started on three new models: the Light Four, Light Six and the Big Six. In 1920, the Light Six was rebranded the Special Six. Although the Special Six was always overshadowed by its big brother, the Big Six, it was every bit well engineered and constructed. Except for the parts required for the larger bore of the Big Six virtually all the engine parts, accessories and chassis components are identical on both cars. A major engine and gearbox redesign at the end of 1924 for EQ model resulted in the ultimate Special Six engine, the compression ratio was increased from 4.1 to 4.45 with the result that the developed horsepower of the engine was increased to 65HP. Approximately 259,000 Special Sixes were built from 1918 to mid-year 1926.
This 1925 Studebaker Special Six EQ model has been in storage for decades and is in good original condition. The car was imported to the UK in 2016 from the USA with a 1955 number plate tag after being on display at the Imperial Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Purchased by a company specialising in renting vehicles for film and TV productions, the car has been re-commissioned, this includes the petrol tank cleaned and coated, new H/T leads and new exhaust system fitted; it runs and drives. This Special Six was used in the re-make of the film ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ released in November 2017, staring a long list of A-list actors including Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Judi Dench and Johnny Depp. Finished in black with the original beige mohair interior, this Studebaker is supplied with UK registration, dating certificate and a copy of the Missouri, USA registration document. This is a good solid car that could have a partial restoration to retain the original patina and be used or, a very good basis for a complete restoration to return this elegant car to its original showroom condition.
