I was reading about different guys on this forum that have more than one Studebaker. So I was wondering how many Studebakers do you have? Running or not. I will go first, I have one 1959 Lark. I have had to pass on others,I had no room to store them.

I now stay with one or two Studebakers at a time. I have had as many as ten cars at one time. I had cars stored across three counties. I found that all I was doing was paying storage on some of the cars and couldn't even keep up with the upkeep on all of them.

This may be tough as I will need to use my hands and feet, but I count 18 total, 1 Packard, 3 Studebaker cars and 14 Studebaker trucks. Oops, I need to make that 19 as I forgot my buggy!

I have 3 if you count that rotted '52 HT thing. :D the truck is my daily driver and the Daytona is being redone.

My Dad has two, a '64 Wagonaire and a '56 Champion Sedanette. (2 door)

My Grandma has 3, a '81 Avanti, a '63 GT Hawk, and a '47 M5 pickup.

One uncle has 2, a '51 Champ Starlight and a '52 Champ 4 door.

Another uncle has 1, a '64 Wagonaire project. (He's stuffing a Mopar 440 in it)

My grandad, well, we lost count. There's probably 30 parts cars or so, and maybe 15-20 runners and future projects.

We have everything fron 1947-1966 with the exception of a '48, '54, '58, '61, and '66. (Well, there's a '54, '58, '61 and '66 in the junk yard, so I guess those could be counted, then we have all but the '54. [8D])

Before the forum police correct you, technically the '81 Avanti is not a Studebaker though it is based on the original design. ;)

It seems to me, Gary, that you included your 52 Packard in your total number of Studebakers![:0]

I have one...down from 6 at one time. Got tired of paying rent on a leaky storage unit and could not find another big enough to accommodate the collection so sold 5 and I keep the last one here at home in my one car garage.

I have three (four if you want to count the '57 Packard wagon- MAJOR project). I have a '64 Daytona Wagonaire- since new, drove away from Hamilton; a '53 Commander Starliner, since 1966 and a '64 Daytona convertible, since 2006. My high was nine at one time though I have run six or so a number of times. At nine I think I had the Wagonaire and Starliner plus a '56 Skyhawk, a '63 R-2 4-speed Avanti, a '63 Daytona Skytop, a '61 Lark convertible, a '62 Lark convertible, a '64 RHD GT, and a '60 one-ton 4WD. I also had a '76 Avanti at the same time. At one time I had three Avantis- two black '63s and the '76.

Paring down from nine I currently have six. I would like to get the number down to three before the move. Move... Oi. My gimmy just blew the transmission. I'm currently wondering what I'm going to do. Sorry, too much personal info.

2 '63 Daytona project wagons. One has the third seat and tailgate step.
1 '62 Y-body sedan. Trying to get it to Michigan and it's new home.
2 '62 Champs -- long bed and short bed. The short bed needs a home.
1 '52 Commander 4dr. Frumpy also needs a home.

Oh-oh!

Have to think a bit here.
'37 Dictator sedan, partially built street rod.
'40 Champion business coupe.
'44 (?) Weasel
'44 US6
3 '47 M16s
'52 2R5 (parts only)
'52-3 2R15
'53 2R17A
'53 Champion 4 door, early tristar car
'53 Champion coupe, parts only
Several Hawk parts cars, plus a "builder" '58 Silver Hawk
2 '63 Wagonaires
'64 GT hawk
'62 Champ
'64 Wagonaire
'64 Daytona Hardtop

I make it 19, counting some that will never run, but most of them do, although not all are roadworthy.

Ooooh, I was hoping we wouldn't get into what we all paid for our Studes along with what we own. It's a well known fact that, with a few exceptions, Studebakers were essentially used cars in the seventies, and priced accordingly. And those who have owned them since that time 'stole' them going by today's market value for them compared to what they're now worth even in #3 condition. For example, I only paid $350 for my '64 convert in 1980. And many of the cars I parted out, I paid anywhere from $25 to $100 each and got my money back in the parts. Many of us posted our 'Stude Regrets' a few months ago of ones that we parted out or let 'get away'. Looking back, I do wish I kept that '61 Cruiser that I had in 1979, but they weren't worth restoring back then. It's the old 'hindsight is 20-20' addage we all experienced, though it appears many of us did have the foresight to hang on to our Studebakers over the long term.

I got two Studebakers for nothing in the 90s. The first was a '48 Champion 2-door sedan which hadn't been driven in 9 or 10 years, but was easily started and even the overdrive worked. The other was a '64 Challenger 4-door 6 with three-speed, solid with mimimal rust. The guy who gave it to me had spent a lot of money on it- new clutch, brakes, many small parts, but unfortunately it had two broken pistons and a bad starter and I didn't feel like tackling the engine. So I ended up donating it to Keystone for their auction when I couldn't sell it at York for $100 as a project car.
