1928 Studebaker Erskine Model 50

Known simply as the Erskine Model 50.  The Erskine was an American automobile brand produced by the Studebaker Corporation of South Bend, Indiana, USA, from 1926 to 1930.

The Erskine Model 50 was a car produced by Erskine Motor Company between 1927 and 1930. It was designed by Studebaker, Erskine’s parent company, to compete in the lower-priced end of the market and was sold under the Erskine brand. The Model 50 was powered by a 50 horsepower, four-cylinder engine and featured a four-speed manual transmission. It had a top speed of around 55 miles per hour and could achieve up to 30 miles per gallon of fuel efficiency. The car was available in several body styles, including a four-door sedan, a two-door coach, and a two-door coupe. It was praised for its durability, affordability, and style and was popular among budget-conscious consumers. Unfortunately, the Erskine Motor Company struggled financially during the Great Depression, and production of the Model 50 was eventually discontinued in 1930. Today, few Model 50s remain, and they are considered to be rare collector’s items.
