That is a beautiful car. I've seen it on his show. For my taste about 100# of extra accessories. If I owned the car I'd be torn about keeping all the extra stuff on it
and keeping it as it came from the factory or paring back to the original design.

Is this Bob Bourk's old car or was that a coupe?

This is not Bob BOURKE'S "old car". Bob's was/is a black Starliner.

I have seen the car in person. It looks as good or better than the pictures.

I too have seen this car. 3 years ago at the Greenwich Concourse, Wayne had that car. I drove my 64 Avanti R2 there; about 130miles and was in a group of cars from 1944 through 1965. A few of the members had their noses in the air when I arrived and answered their questions where is my trailer with the response, trailer??, I drove it here. They reminded me I was at a Concours and no one drives. The end result. my 64 R2 won.

Way to go, Mark! I do believe our club is called the Studebaker DRIVERS Club for a good reason!

you are correct brngarage. Its amazing how some car owners are so consumed with what they have, they forget its a car, a car that was driven thousands of miles long before anyone thought to treat them as privileged items. I am fortunate in many ways. I am able to drive both my cars and soon all three. Though rain, snow and ice will keep them garaged, I drive them often. In fact, I frequently drive my GT Hawk 200 miles round trip when my cigar buddies meet up with their classics. Cigars and cars. NICE DAY
