Driving through Frankfort (just 10 miles north of home) and saw the back of this car - cannot mistake it for anything but a Studebaker. Had Kentucky antique license plates. Anyone know the car?

It was in a business parking lot and from the rust on the rotors, it sat in that spot when tropical storm Cindy came through last Thursday/Friday - 5 inches of rain at home - windows were not all steamed up so maybe it does not leak...

A while back, I saw an ad for this car for sale. (At my age, I have a built in excuse for not remembering) I seem to recall that it had a surprisingly low price for what it looks like. That is until I read about "WATER DAMAGE." Don't recall all the details, but I assume, considering the extent of the damage, the car will have to be completely dismantled, rust proofed (if possible) and then reassembled/restored.
