I am looking for a Studebaker car or truck that is a fixer upper. I have 2 boys that will be driving soon and I am looking for something for them to start with. (just like I did)[8D] I know they are around but I don't know where to look. If anyone knows anyone in / around Missouri/Arkansas/Oklahoma/Kansas area I am very interested. Thanks!![:I]

Hello studewieser - welcome to the forum. You stated that you are looking for a fixer upper, but I have some questions - what are you really looking for? Year? Body Style? Engine? Etc. Do you want a driver that you need to restore and/or refurbish or are you looking for something that you are going to basically restore from the ground up, how much are you planning on doing yourself and how much are you going to have done for you? Now for the big question - how much are you wanting to spend? Where are you located ? I live just south of St. Louis and know of a couple possibilities in the St. Louis area and can give you names and contact info to someone in Springfield, MO, Aurora, MO, and Joplin, MO that might be able to help you? If you are not a member of SDC you really need to sign up, the Turning Wheels monthly mag. will give access to Studes and Stude parts for sale as well as access to all of the SDC vendors to get about anything you could need for your project. If you email me off forum, I can give you some names and contact information.

Hi Phil,
Thanks for the reply. I am a new member of the SDC. my father and mother (both gone now) were members since the 70's. I have actually been looking for a truck for several years. the price is really negotiable depending on what I can find. I want a stude real bad now! my 2 sons (17 & 16) and myself will be doing as much work as we can, but we are novice and are sure we may need a steping stone along the way. as far as year, model , make we really doesnt matter anymore. I like a truck , my 1 boy likes the gt hawk , and my other boy more the 50's models or the late 50's real early 60's models of the lark. I really am just wanting a decent stude that hopefully I could drive and fix, but if it's garaged that will only get us working harder at it. :D I am located in the Joplin Mo. area. I am going to keep watching the Stude Turning Wheels as well. any help would be very appreciated.
Thanks, Don Studebaker

As described in ad:

1956 STUDEBAKER PICKUP, Chev 4 speed, Leather Bucket Seats, Nice Classic Truck, VERY RARE, $8,500

Gave him a call, more info:

Redone 3-4 years ago, has been driven maybe 150 miles on rebuilt 350 engine. 4 speed is a "granny." Original rear end. New windshield. Some rust under right door. Z-28 cam shaft, Holley carb.

Leather Chrysler power seats, working.

It's 100 miles from me. Guy sees no reason I should not be able to drive it home.

He is only willing to drop his price to what it would cost for parts to install power steering.

Studwieser,
You'll easily pay that much by the time you are done fixing up one that costs a lot less but needs a lot of work. Or that's what I've found in my case, anyway.

The way I look at it for me is this: I could have easily spent $15,000 on a new truck. But I would rather have a Studebaker truck, which will find a way to get $15k out of me by the time it is happy.

There's a '55 in Houston on eBay right now, more in the price range you are looking for. Check it out on eBay. Also, check Craigslist.com for a couple in California that have been posted lately.
