This 1932 Rockne "75" [41] standard ("deluxe" would have dual side-mounted spares) rumble-seat Coupe with older restoration remains quite presentable. After 30 years in Texas, since 2004 it resides in Kansas within 70 miles of where its namesake, legendary Notre Dame football coach Knute Rockne died in a 1931 airplane crash in Chase Co., Kansas. Rockne Motors Corp., a Studebaker subsidiary, made 38,000 Rocknes in 3 car models ("65", "10", "75") and a panel delivery truck (P, in '33 only) during the 1932 and 1933 model years, of which 7300 were "75"s, but how many (or few) of those were coupes is not known. Rocknes competed with Ford, Chevrolet & Plymouth cars, and were selling fairly well, considering it was the time of the Great Depression; economic factors dictated that Studebaker reduce the number of its numerous car offerings, and as the newest one, Rockne production was halted. The Antique Studebaker Club maintains a Rockne Registry which in June 2010 listed about 190 Rocknes in 15 countries.
