FOR SALE: 1932 Rockne 65 Series
Here's something very rare for the collector of true old-timers - a Rockne 65 Series, which was produced by Studebaker in the early '30s for a few short years.

Not many car enthusiasts even know about the existence of the Rockne brand. It was developed and built by Studebaker as a "durable, inexpensive brand", in the early '30s and named after famous football coach, Knute Rockne, who died mere days after being appointed Manager of Sales Promotion. Bad luck continued to follow Rockne, as it was launched during the depths of the Great Depression. In the end it was only produced during 1932 and 1933.
This particular mustard yellow and brown 4-door example is a 65 Series derivative and is powered by a six-cylinder engine coupled with a three-speed gearbox. The engine is a smooth runner for its age, and the previous owner has done some grand tours with this old timer, always reliably.
Although conceived to be an inexpensive car, it was quite luxurious for the time, as well as spacious front and rear. The car doesn't have a boot, but rather a luggage rack at the rear.
This is a unique and rare car that will be a great addition to any vintage car collection, particularly one focused on American vehicles or, more specifically, Studebaker.
