Greetings, All,

Today at Reedsville it was great to meet so many members of this and other Stude news groups.

One thing which came to mind is how difficult it is to keep current on highest sale prices of Studebakers. Here's a suggestion for someone like JDP - start a column in Turning Wheels, like the one in Automobile, which lists the monthly verified sale prices of Studebakers. Let's start here with those you personally know to be factual.

A member told me today he heard of a Stude 4X4 which recently sold at auction in AZ for $48k. This amazed me, but we should all hope it is true. To begin the discussion, what is the highest verified sale price for a 1956 Golden Hawk?

thnx, jv.

Yes, that $48K 4x4 is true, I remember the thread.
The highest I can think if would have to be a '31-'32 Prez Roadster or an original Indy car. They fetch pretty tall prices.

...depends on if you're buying or selling, I guess :). Actully, since I do both, I kind of like it that Studebakers a bargains compared to most collector cars out there. I hope it stays that way a while longer.

Yes, I think S. Ray Miller's 31 roadster went for over $200,000.

I spotted the trend of rising Stude prices in Sports Car Market, AutoWeek, and other publications about 5 years ago. I put the info in our chapter newsletter for our member reference.
Perhaps now is the time for something like this in TW!

Alan! Check out the price on ANY woodie wagon!

I'm with Dick.

The reason I'm with these cars is their comparitive inexpense for the raw materials. I fervently hope they don't get expensive like the Chevys and Fords.

If anyone else is looking for appreciation, well, Chevy and Ford made products that sell for stupid prices. Please leave us alone.

Lotsa Larks!

And with the wholesale recycling of old iron going on, when will the parts start to turn to gold? Yes, it's happening for some specialty items, but by and large, alot of it ends up going to the scrapper because no one wants to deal with the hassle of storing Sheet metal, engine cores and the like.
Couple of knotheads I know in the Studebaker world think that anything that isn't gleamingly ready for installation should be disposed of in the name of neighborhood grandure. What a STUPID approach. Of course, those same nitwits don't stop to consider where some of the parts that make up THEIR Studebaker came from. Maybe they think the Studebaker fairy drops stuff off while they're sleeping!

We should be surprised that they are still so cheap! Condition 2-3 1957 Chevy Belairs can get can get that much. I don't know about other 1962 cars.

Jack,

The 4x4 truck sold in Atlantic City the same weekend as York this year and cost the purchaser $52K with the buyers premium. I heard someone mention at Reedsville that a Coupe-Express brought over $135K at J-B.

The eBay auction closed at $20,650 and the reserve wasn't met. I wonder what they wanted for the car. It is a nice car, but that seemed like a fair price to me, but then again I am neither the one selling the car nor the one buying it.

There's a guy in Western Australia trying to sell his Avanti which is apparently the best in Australia for $AUD$53,000 USD$40,743. It was AUD$56,000 USD$43,047.

Is that expensive???

I'd say so! But, than again, Avanti's may be worth more outside the US. [?]
