I guess everyone noticed that the two Studebaker V8s that were on eBay both sold. I don't think I have ever seen Studebaker engines go for that much. It makes me feel better about the 64 Jet Thrust engine I bought on eBay a couple of years ago for my 52 Commander.

Studebaker 304 JTS/R2 engine with 4 speed auto complete...$6,500.00

1963 STUDEBAKER HAWK AVANTI R-2 JET THRUST...$3,995.00
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=009&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=190042305986&rd=1,1

I looked at the two engines mentioned. On the disassembled second jet thrust, the photo with the fan blade has piqued my interest. I've seen plenty with staggered blade configuration and I know it appears the water pump pulley is resting on top of one blade, but there seems to be an awful lot of space between that blade the next going clockwise. Is that how they really are or is the image just distorted because of a very short focal length lens? I figure there's plenty of folks out there that can answer this one and satisfy my curiosity.

There is a whole discussion of those fan blades on page 2 of this forum titled:
[u]Reedsville item - seat covers fs </u> just below the seat covers.

The picture is gone, but the discussion is still there.

I noticed that on the restored engine, someone asked the seller if they wanted to buy a restored, show-quality 1934 Studebaker to install the engine in. :)

I noticed that also and emailed Richard Quinn (editor of the Antique Studebaker Review) about it and this was his answer:

I know most of the '34 Dictator Coupes around and I do not recall ever seeing such a car in South Bend (or anywhere else). In addition there has never been an AACA meet in South Bend since there is no AACA chapter anywhere near there. I believe the writer is full of beans.

At those types of prices, it would almost be worth it for me to part out my Avanti.

John; That fan is a Studebaker item although it 'looks funny'. I came across two of these heavy duty fans (NOS) some years ago and thought they were damaged because they did not look like fans I had seen before. I took them to a swap meet and put $10 on them. The first one sold before I laid it out on the table. The price on the second one increased substatially in about 30 seconds. It sold in no time. Lesson learned-do your research.
