What an amazing collection. So far my favorite so far are 55 president that is spectacular, super straight and solid lark convertible, and tan Packard Hawk is amazing! Incredible original leather, very clean and complete, even a roll of mylar in the trunk. Wish I could post pictures here, but I'll put them on Facebook.

This is your third thread that you started on this auction. Why not add to either of the previous ones?

Because in either of the previous threads, I was not yet here. Why is it a problem for you?

Hey Bob, why can't you post pics here? I thought it was only in the "stovehuggers" forum where pic posting is so restrictive. As I've said before, not a facebook participant (too many relatives:rolleyes:)...there are probably others here (some might have money) who could benefit from pics.:)

By the way, I enjoyed pestering you in person at the last York meet.;) Good luck with this auction.:)

Because you have to set up with a host; get the photos loaded there; then bring a link over here and hope it works. All from a phone while I'm working an auction. Facebook is instant and direct. I can post photos direct from my phone's storage, post while taking them, post video clips, even do live video there.

That's why most people these days do the bulk of their communicating in Facebook. Forums still have a place, but are outdated.

As for relatives, there is no requirement to "friend" anybody, so nobody can get on your page if you don't want. Another advantage since you don't have to deal with cranks that gripe about the tiniest thing. Like starting new threads.

Well, I finally got a smartphone. I don't know how to post pictures from this blasted thing yet. Only had it a year & half. Posting with it now. Like me,my Studebakers, and this forum...I'm surrounded by "OUTDATED!"

Anyway, I'm not a player in this auction, but interested in how it goes. Look forward to any updates.

John, you are a good man. It was great to finally meet you in person. But, I will probably not be doing any more updates on this forum.

Come on over to Facebook if you get a mind to. That's where most of everything happens nowadays.

Quite the education on this forum about face-book advantages. Quite a "huffy" approach I must say, yet it gets to the point. Think I'll give face-book another look.

Very nice 1932 Studebaker President coupe sold for $19,000 (on-line bid) and a nice 1963 Avanti R1 sold for $14,500 (on site), which seems a little high since mechanical status may be unknown. Probably lots of bargains left.

CEs were $30,000 and $15,750. Pinehurst was $5,250 for no discernible reason.

Been watching on-line and glad I stayed home. Prices are way up on most of the Studes except for the rough Speedster which went cheep. VERY few bargains to be had this day.

I bid on the Pinehurst. My last bid was 3500 and the auctioneer reported it at 5000. I said NO. He then got a bid of 5250 and asked me again to up it from there and I repeated the no. So someone paid 1750 more than they should have on that car. I was thoroughly done at 3500.

That 32 President was a decent older/amateur restoration and I thought it was a pretty decent buy at 19k but I'm no authority on that vintage.

I don't think that 32 is a President.

I agree with Rex, I don't think that it's a President. Did anyone think to measure the wheelbase?

My wife and I were there all day and never bid as everything went high. Nice to see prices up! On the 1963 Avanti, I crawled under it and the left side torque box and the frame in front of the rear wheel was shot. The hole in the frame a squirrel could crawl thru! So, I guess it is not always true nithing is worse than a cheap Avanti. Feel sorry for new owner, he is going to learn a hard lesson!

:ohmy:Well, glad I didn't hop on a train after all! All the same, it should still be a reasonable price being that we know the Toter to have been recently restored and I believe it was mentioned that was a frame-up.

OH, Oh! While scanning that Huge List of Sold Cars and Trucks still running for Today's vehicles, I found a '55? Clipper with a '57 Stude./Packard VIN: 57L-3812

A '54 Conestoga Wagon with a " '64 Cruiser Wagon" Title/Name and 64V6117 VIN!!

If they got all those Titles mixed up and that is where this info came from, they have a HUGE Problem.

I was looking for the '57 Clipper Wagon for you, but I think it was yesterday. :(

Lots of miss-info there.

If you bought one, be SURE to match the paperwork to the Serial Number Plate!

I was only interested in one car and had a friend that was registered bid online. Fortunately someone else bid more at the end. Among other things I had concerns about the title since the car was listed as a 4dr when it was a 2 dr. The description was wrong and the title was maybe also wrong.

For those interested...this link should provide you with the sold items from Day 1 https://www.proxibid.com/asp/Catalog.asp?aid=127998
Day 2 https://www.proxibid.com/asp/Catalog.asp?aid=127999 Just type Studebaker in the "Search Catalog" box. It does pull up a few non-Studebaker items but it's easier to scroll through


Here are a few pics from Day 1

$13,000 for the 1960 Lark convertible (plus 12% commission) seems pretty steep for a car in that condition.

According to him, he left early. Everything was either too much money; nor did he have a lineup of 'customers' to haul cars "anywhere in the world" for.

That was a better car than the pics indicate. Had Cal tags and appeared as a Cal car. Might have been a little high but as said it was a better car than it looks in pics. Might have been truly rust-free, car was undoubtably straight and solid.

Did you look at that car? It was pretty solid and probably a California car for part of its life. Those weren't black California plates. But, the front floors were marginal with holes on the drivers side needing at a minimum some patch work. I'm sure a screw driver would have pushed through in several spots on the passenger floor. Rust about the size of a silver dollar on passenger front fender but not at all bad. Solid trunk area. Pot metal not good on drivers side but maybe plateable but shot on passenger side including cozy wing assembly. A good car to restore but WAY to much money....!

OR, you might find it on Ebay or Craigslist, etc., like the blue Lark convertible in this auction did: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/showthread.php?68257-100-cars-donated-to-college-in-AB-including-Studes&highlight=college

I got to this one too late, was focusing on the 55 President #306R, but missed #154R earlier, a 58 Hdt, a much rarer bird, very desirable and appeared in very good condition. Went for $9,000, and I would probably have been in a bidding war, which I have done when live at auctions, and always lost out to someone who would have bought the item at ANY cost. Oh well, the car was too nice to modify, although I have always wondered if one could place a '57 front clip on this '58 model. Wouldn't be too hard, and there were lots of '57's at this auction at reasonable prices. I guess I saved myself a lot of money and a lot of time on a project I may not be able to live long enough to complete.

Always thought that a '57 Clipper front clip (nose) would be 'just the thing' to greatly improve the looks of a '58 Packard hardtop! :!:

One good thing about Studebaker's, is their ability to mix and match. And the fumy thing is, it generally looks better that way.:eek:

Any idea what year the La Palma Car Show Picture is from Sebastian? I recognize Doug Hughes's '63 Lark but from that ANGLE without seeing much of the Rear of the roof and rear glass, few would notice that it is actually a '63 with a 250 c.i.d. Six Cylinder Engine (yes 250!) and a '66 front clip. :ohmy:

The guy next to it, looks a LOT like ME!

Most of what you seek was discussed in other threads/topics on this auction. Do a search and I think that you will find answers and opinions.

07-27-2017, 08:56 PM
I can, I looked at it closely in person. It was a VERY solid vehicle that needed everything for a total restoration. I believe that the engine could have "run" with less than 10 hours of attention. Beyond that it was anyone's guess on hours and cost. bIt was virtually rust free. The steal was the Coupe Express next to it, not as pretty but just as solid. Crazy prices................. but people willing to buy old Studebakers at good money.
