This is a really close one for me.  The Studebaker has more modern styling for sure but there is just something I have always liked about the look of the Nash, so it gets my vote.

These cars look not only one but two styling generations apart! Easy choice for me tonight with the Studebaker.

The Nash was still pre-WW II.  The Studebaker was a step ahead.

I really like the Nash, but side by side, the Studebaker wins this one for its modern style and overall pop.

The Studebaker styling was ahead of its time for 1948. All the more reason why I prefer the look of the Nash for its more traditional style.

The Studebaker is certainly the most modern but the Nash classic look really appeals to me.

I like both, but this one isn't even close for me.  I like the "older" styling of the NASH!

LOL, interesting how all of us in our comments made reference to the styling differences.  Some like the Nash because it is "more dated", while others prefer the Studebaker because of its "advanced" look.  Both are outstanding body styles.
