Let us know what part of Canada U live in.I'm in Ontario & a member of local chapters & hear of a Stude 4-sale now & again.Is there a model U are interested in & what condition do U require ?
Believe me when I advise U to pay more to get more. A $1000. fixer upper will cost U more than a $5ooo. driver that needs little or nothing & beware of excesive rust & the fact they never made a Stude that didn't leak oil--Kevin

Kevin Kevin Kevin Studebakers do not "Leak" oil. No. Studebakers offer a "continual oil change" as standard equipment!

Kevin,

I just put my Studebaker doctors buggy back in storage after taking it to our chapter meeting on Sunday and there was not a drop of oil anywhere on the trailer!:D

There are always Studebakers available to buy, including from some of us on this forum. You need to narrow down what you are looking for (year range, body style, equipment, stock or modified, condition, etc.) and your acceptable price limit.

Guido, I once owned a Studebaker Roof Seat Brake.[8D] It didn't leak oil, but the power units (4) sure had a discharge that...[:I] well, some people didn't appreciate it. They just didn't understand it was great for the garden...;) There are days that I really miss the horses. But I can still have my Studeclunkers.:D

Lotsa Larks!

Ron,

In typical fashion I did it "half ass". I got half of the setup as there is no ass around to pull it![}:)]

Here you go Guido,thats Diane and I taking a tour of Lunenburg a few weeks ago pulled by"Jesse James". His operator was quite proud of him,he had the route,and every stop down so well she hardly needed to speak to him,and he never pooped in the street,she said he always waited till he got back to the barn. It was a hot day and he sure didn't miss any of his water barrels strategically placed around town. Great horse.

By the way,I couldn't find any evidence that it was a Studebaker wagon.
