Brad,
Thanks for posting the photos of this classic. One can just dream of owning a beautiful machine.

Ever since seeing one of these in person in 2010, I am a member of the St. Regis fan club. Elegance, style, it has it all.

I don't honestly believe I could drive a vehicle like this without wearing a fedora and pinstripe suit.

That has to be one of the most beautiful cars Studebaker ever made.

Honestly, I'd rather have Dick Quinn's '31 President Coupe, and it's $40K less.

It is a beauty, it reminds me of an L-29 Cord. Something that looks this good should be reproduced for today's market. I bet the Chinese could build us some of these for cheap. :)

Personally, I like the long doors.

I like the long doors.

They are lovely for a picnic, and tiresome in the extreme in a parking lot or garage.
[Why yes, I do have an Eldorado...why would you ask?]

I'm partial to "golf doors." They're perfect for the rifle cases.

There's a 33 Dictator St.Regis with a 8cyl.dual side mounts,startex,free wheeling + other options in a barn covered with pidgeon poop in a barn near me.The owner won't sell it & will never do anything with it,these type of owners really iritate me !By the way he starts it now & again so it does run & is complete.The one discussed is a beautiful auto but a bit pricey for most.

Personally, I like the long doors.

They're the benefit of association with Pierce-Arrow.

One thing that I really like about the SDC is that, with few exceptions, we generally accept each other with a respect for our common interests and not so much our wealth or resources.:) I see where he says that the car has always been stored in a "climate controlled environment." That fact alone, relegates me to "dreamer" status for this car. The few Studebakers I own deserve a better environment than the one I provide for them. My man cave is a cobbled together earth floor shed that is "controlled by the climate!"

Even if I were "gifted" with such a car, the only fair thing to do would be to build a new garage or offer it for sale to someone with the resources to properly care for it. To do less, would be like using a precious work of art as a "barn sign."

There was a really solid one on ebay recently that needed full resto. Anybody know what it went for?

So true, John. Our Studebakers act as introductions. Our common interest is not driven by our financial capabilities but by an overwhelming appreciation for the marque; personal friendships, developed across geographic and financial boundaries. And...in the long run...don't the personal friendships add greater quality to life than the possession of a fine example of the marque?

Now where is my winning lottery ticket again? I can never seem to find when I need it.
