Studebaker National Museum has two new cars to show off.

They recently received a 1935 President Convertible Sedan. It has a custom aluminum body that was built in Ontario, and is special because it's a one of a kind.

Archivist Andrew Beckman says, "Anytime we can display a vehicle that's one of a kind, it has a unique quality to it, we're excited to do that. That's what people come to the museum to see."

The second car is a little less flashy because it was built right before the war.

It's a 1942 Champion "Series 90" Club Sedan.

Because of war restrictions, the models couldn't have chrome or aluminum so they have a very stark appearance and were nicknamed "blackout" models.

The museum expects to have the cars on loan through the summer.
