It will most likely go for more than we can imagine :)

Love the quad bumper guards [:o)]

Rusty, but looks original. No reserve.

Hmmm, a "Sweepstakes 259" in a '53 Tri-star hardtop. It also has a significant list to the port side with it buried in the mud up to the frame.

Except for it being a commander rather than a champion, that car is nearly a dead ringer for my '53. Chippewa/Lombard green. Actually looks in better shape than my car did when I started on it... Wonder where in Mn its at? There is a '53 commander hardtop the same color combo in a old 'yard up here but its pretty picked over and even rustier than this one. Some parts off it are now on mine.

That's really a shame! Just think, about 20 years ago that was quite a nice car! The original material on the drivers' seat cushion is not even worn through. Those bumper guards are certainly different, looks like the one-off '53 guards in the center where the short ones belong are the '53 Sedan type still available at SASCO, and then the C/K ones are outboard. I also noted a aftermarket wheelcover on the Rt/Fnt, you can always tell because they are solid rust, Stude ones were Stainless. You would have to plan on a frame transplant on a rust belt car sitting on the ground.

This falls into the "small world" category. The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome is in the same county that I reside in (Dutchess County, NY). I have visited there several times. The founder and long time operator (until his death) of the Aerodrome was Cole Palen. Cole worked for my father at the Texaco Research Center at the time of the Aerodrome's start. Cole started by purchasing surplus planes from a museum on Long Island. He then rented several WWI era planes to a company to make a movie (don't remember the movie) with. This is where Cole got the capital to start the Aerodrome and leave Texaco. The Aredrome is still in operation with flights/air shows during the good weather.

"It will most likely go for more than we can imagine "

I just checked this auction and see it ended at $3150 [:0]!! Sure surprised me. A '54 coupe that was similarily rusty but less weathered and missing engine sold for $800 last year at a live auction I went to summer of '05. Not too far from where this one was.
