354 in³ (5.8-liter) Arizonacounties issued Studebakers to their sheriffs, because of theirreputation for power, reliability, and ability to withstand hard use andbad roads. In 1925, the company published a pamphlet about the Arizonasheriffs' Studebakers, and named their Big Six Sport Phaeton model the Sheriff. New York Auto Show,Studebaker featured a 1918 Big Six that had a verified odometer readingof over 500,000 miles (800,000 km), as a testament to the longevity anddurability of Studebaker vehicles.
