This is the only known pic of a Studebaker Commander Cabriolet by Autenrieth, c.1952

All aspects and features of the car shown would indicate it is a 1950 Hudson convertible automobile and likely the Commodore Series.
Other than an uncommonly fine fitting convertible top boot, in this B&W photo I can't find anything not from the Hudson factory. Hopefully other readeres can add photos of the car.

Commander was a Studebaker series for many years however this is certainly a Hudson. A second Hudson (perhaps an auto show photo?) is apparent beyond.

Thank you ! :good:
The pic is from the Autenrieth archive and is described as Studebaker. But of course you're right, it's a Hudson.
According to the body book of Autenrieth, they built a Studebaker Cabriolet and not a Hudson. Maybe Autenrieth had this pic only as an example in their archive.
