are studebaker engines worth much money? I guess the v8s would be more but typical 6 and 8 cylinders what are they worth

You need to be more specific on the year, size and condition for us to provide much feedback. However, I have seen engines change hands in the past year between $0.00 and $25,000.00.

4 cents a pound, $5-$100 if they need rebuilt, one to two grand if they're newly rebuilt, $1800 to apoplexy if they have bells and whistles.

Studebaker engines are like any other brand, they are worth what people will pay, based on their condition. If you have no first hand info and receipts to prove what new parts are inside and when, it is just a re-buildable CORE. Most go for a few hundred if complete.

They are no Studebaker 8's in recent years, the last in-line 8 was 1946.
There are Commander 226, & 245 "Big" Flathead 6's, small 170 & 185 Champion Flathead 6's and 170 OHV 1961-1964 6's. The 6's have low demand, hence low value.

The V-8's have better demand are 232, 224, 259, and 289 Cu.in. The late 1962-1964 Full-Flow Filter 259's and 289's would have higher value.

I've sold fairly recently rebuilt V8's for $1000, fresh rebuilds go for 3K or better, used R2's for 4K, rebuilds 6K or so. R3's 20K plus. I give away the little sixes when I can find takers, Commander sixes are worth a few $100 at least.

That makes me feel sad to read of the little sixes like they are unwanted orphans [V]. I realize it's true, but it's sad, nonetheless. Of course, what brightens me back up is reading things like that letter to Turning Wheels a few months back, where a man recalls a story he heard from a Chevrolet engineer, who took part in all makes of motor tests at the outbreak of WWII. He said all the engines died in the torture test...except the little Champion Six, which they couldn't kill. [^]

Rich,

I have always been under the impression that the straight 8 ended with 1942 production at the beginning of the war.

Guido; you're right, I don't know why I was thinking that all the models were carried over from '42 but the parts Book shows only the Champion was. I thought I had seen a '46 President 8 at an SDC show, but it had to be a '42! This from a guy who never owned anything older than 1948 (1) and another 100 or so 1954 and newer. Anyway we have no idea what year engines beatnic is thinking about.
