BTW, what's with all the high starting bids lately ? I have not been able to bid on a Studebaker on ebay for over a month since many are way over priced. here's another: (62 GT Hawk)

Of the 43 completed listings for Studebakers on eBay Motors, only 10 have sold and 7 of them sold for less than $2,500.00.

Call me critical, but if a guy wants $150K for a car, I would hope that he could at least learn to spell and proof read his ad. If he does not pay attention to those details, did he do the same on the car. While I realize there is probably no correlation between car building skills and writing an ad, I am turned off by obvious mistakes. Here are a few of his:
Wich is as follows.
Beautiful Pen striping
Duel exhaust
it has even won three curzing awards over the last four years in Southern California

Decimal Dude (disgusted at the lack of education in today's society)

The body of the ad provides no details on the build or the type of components that would warrant the price. With only 5 pictures and none showing any of the drive train components or the interior, he is just wasting his listing fees.

And the guy (I ASSUME) with the 62 GT says to "acquire the bill sheet." For a starting bid of 16 large you'd think he'd know the difference between a bill and build sheet. Now if he had a starting bid of 5K I could see that he might not be in tune with what he is selling. I imagine that if he asked the museum for the "bill" sheet they just MIGHT not know what he is referring to.

I have seen this car once at Fifties Fever in Winnemucca, NV a couple years ago, I can't recall the exact year. It's nice but not 150K nice. The thing that really stuck out in my mind is that the paint had a bunch of flaws. I can't remember what the engine looked like and can't really recall what the interior was like, sorry. It's weird that he doesn't have more pictures of the car with such a high starting bid but then again it looks like he is new to ebay. Have a great weekend everyone!

I agree to Guido's post. I should add that for 150k and the modifications he did, the atrocious spelling makes me doubt as to what he did or didn't do on the car. IE, if he wants me to take his what I suppose professional Ebay ad, with such a commanding price seriously, he needs to run his ad through Office's spellcheck at the very least.

Well, the 16K GT hawk that needs a interior has a bid. BTW, I'd bet his interior quote of $800 is based on my carpets/covers/headliner without labor.

I'm a bit shocked at the bid myself, I may have been wrong about high starting bids. I'd expect a solid #2 R1 to go for that sort of coin, but not just a nice, standard 62.
