View Full Version : 63 Cruiser in NJ

03-27-2009, 09:28 PM
There was a drop dead gorgeous all original 63 Cruiser with that rare broadcloth interior a few months back on eBay that never met reserve; does anybody have a link to it or know whatever happened to it? I believe it got bid up to around $6700 or so and I think it was in NJ but could be mistaken. Thanks. It was the nicest I'd ever seen.

I guess that might be this one: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=25800&SearchTerms=63+cruiser

It is of course gone now, and there is no direct link to where it was.

I did not know that the search function was so hard to locate models of Studes. It seems that those with the lists of owned cars, always cause thousands of unrelated searches to come up. :(

Yep, that's the one I found the post about, because it's got a re-done velour interior, and Canadian built with only 9200 miles, but it's in Arizona, not NJ, so maybe not the one Dan means, I think it was original Broadcloth and Green on GREEN.

The '63 Lark Cruiser is still on his lot in Arizona - looks like a nice unit except for the $13,900 asking price! [:0] There is also a 1960 Hawk offered at $19,900.

That's not it but it was on at about the same time as the one in AZ - I remember being astonished that there were two at the same time with that interior.

It is real easy Jim, if you take a close look at that Green Broadcloth in the link bams50 provided, you will see that it is CLOTH, and does not look anything like the Velour in the other car, the blue one!

They are both beautiful, but one is original, the other is re-done in the wrong material. Most redone interiors are easier to spot because they rarely use the correct pattern (design) but this blue one was redone with the correct pattern quite correctly. [^]

I prefer the Velour because it is more durable, and of course you know it goes without saying; I would always choose Blue over Green! LOL! :D

That's the one - thanks. The more I stare at it the more I want it.

I was in contact with the owner after the ebay listing closed. He informed that the car has a "very nice home" in AZ. Didn't mention what it finally sold for.
