When automobiles were still automobiles! A worthwhile project there at a reasonable price, if running as represented. I thought of you when I saw it, Chris!

I always liked the suicide doors on any car.

looks like a pretty solid car with just surface rust. The od trans is a plus as well. Good price I think on one of Studebakers best designs to me.

They're definitely cool. The exception would be when one comes open while you're driving along, the wind catches it, snaps it open to where it breaks the stop and then slaps back against the door behind it. Ask me how I know what that experience is like. Ask me what twisting metal and snapping wood sounds like as you try to grasp what just happened.

That seems like a great deal to me, and one of the few Studes that I have on my "must own someday" list. If I hadn't made up my mind that I'm going to finish my '59 truck, I would be all over that President.

Just Thought if someone is interested in buying this car in Defiance. I have an enclosed car trailer and could be hired to bring the car to you for reasonble rate. Am about 1 hr from Defiance.
