Studebakers were made to drive! (Besides, they don't get lost as easy in the Wal-Mart parking lot!)

I am very sorry to hear that you need to sell BOTH of them Charles. :(

The Cruiser is a very well equipped car, in good condition, needing only some TLC, from what I can see. [^]

I got the auction off to a start for you. Good luck with your auctions! I won't get into your decision to sell the cars.

Looks like a very honest overview of the car. One question if I may......why list the Studes prior to selling the JD's and Ford? I know they probably wouldn't sell as quickly, but still they would be a revenue stream.

58 Packards
62 & 63 Larks

AC does work, not as cold as last summer, might need a charge. Compressor was new or rebuild shortly before I got the car.

The Ford is too rough to bring enough, and I share ownership of the Deeres with family, so the Studes were the only logical choice.

Maybe I can get a '56 -'61 Hawk when I get back on my feet! First car titled in my name was a '56 Power Hawk and I miss it.

Thanks for the support, it means a lot.

Owch!
The '57 met reserve and sat there. I set it low trying to get some excitement, but no luck!
Guess I better grab a box of Klenex in case the '64 does the same...

Charles, I recommend NEVER setting the reserve lower than you can stand to let it go for; as you see you can outsmart yourself. Same as no reserve; that can be a good sales tool, but it can also backfire. Depends on how much of a gambler one is.

If your reserve on the 64 is too low for you, you might want to change it if you can or cancel the listing and relist with the reserve you want. Looking at your BIN, I worry that this might be the case.

Sorry for your troubles; BTDT. Hope the sale goes well for you.
