Thought some of you might find this auction interesting. One guy donated 100 vehicles to this college in Alberta! They're having an auction in June. I count seven Studebakers.

They're looking for volunteers to help get the cars sale-ready. Boy, would I love to get in on that! Heck, I'd just like to attend. Gord, are you watching?<G>

Wow, this was not what I was expecting. Some very desirable cars in this group. Should raise a lot of money for the school.

This sale is only about 35 miles from me. I had heard about the big donation of cars, but didn't know the Studes were among them. I expect I will go to the sale.

Did these cars come from the same collector?? Who ever it was, he has great taste. They all seem to be the most desirable of each of the models one could want.

Fond of 'orphans' too. Studebakers, Kaisers and a Corvair fixation <g>

As far as I can make out, the three Kaisers mentioned--the 53 HJ, the 51 Utility hatchback, and the 54 (its a 53) are all unknown to the Kaiser registry.

This was announced a few months ago. It has raised a lot of attention in the Calgary area. The collage is about 45 minutes north of the city. Even if a small portion of the number of people that have mentioned going to this auction actually go, it will be a very busy place. Enough different cars to be of interest to a wide range of people.
Now all I need is a second garage to fill with one of them.

Interesting variety of cars. Surprising amount of Jag's in the group. My interests would be the Lark convertible, old Vette, the newer T-bird and a Vair convert in no particular order.

1941
Studebaker
1 Ton Truck It's an M16, not sure of year. Runs, runs, nice paint on cab, good tires, IIRC, incorrect headliner unfinished. Some weld holding panels together around engine compartment. Commander six. Grain box on back.

Red / Black

======================================================================
30

1951
Studebaker
Starlight Coupe

Blue / WHite

G730022 – 1951 Studebaker manufactured in Hamilton Ontario plant. This is a Champion with overdrive. Runs, I think. Nice interior, redone; may not be 100% authentic, but very presentable. Truly lousy paint job. Sander damage to divider bars and glass in rear windows. Lacks rear gravel pan. Has wrong wheels with Lark dog dish hub caps on it.



51

1959
Studebaker
2D Station Wagon Another six-cylinder, IIRC. Floor pans patched with pop rivets. Probably worth saving, being as it is a nice model, but basically it needs everything.

================================================================
54

1960
Studebaker
Champ ton PU

Blue
ES130434 - 5E series Ton truck This poor thing is a parts truck. Cab floor, kick panels, and firewall half gone, crudely patched with bondo and scrap metal riveted in. Decent but obviously inauthentic seat and interior door panels. OHV six. Doesn't sit right, and not a straight panel in it. The worst of the Studebakers I saw here.


55

1960
Studebaker
Hawk 2D Sedan

White
70,006 miles

60-60VC2361 – 1960 model year, V8 engine, Hamilton Ont Assembly plant. Looks very presentable, but clearly has had rust issues patched up. Nice new interior. Engine runs, automatic drive. Frame brackets for engine were cut, and shabbily rewelded. May not be original engine, but it's more or less period-correct. May have hidden flaws. A 20-footer.


56

1960
Studebaker
Lark 2D Convertible

Light Blue
47,110 Miles

60S58504 - 1960 model year, six cylinder model year, manufactured in USA. Somehow missed looking at this one closely, but it was in a dark hallway, too. Doesn't appear to have been poorly repainted, at least.



59

1962
Studebaker
Gran Turismo 2D
Grey
90,449 Miles

62VK63456 - 1962 model year, V8 engine, Manufactured in USA. Could be a nice car. Color is a bronzetone gray metallic? Decent older paint job, a few tiny rust bubbles. Brakes don't work. Holley rotary electric fuel pump mounted next to radiator; poor choice of pump, wrong place to mount it. Very nice interior. Fix the obvious issues, and it would be a nice driver.

General observations: Wow! A lot of cars. Eeeww! Many of them are goobered. Lousy paint jobs, orange peel and overspray, or peeling because surface was not properly prepped. Saw a Jag XKE with nasty lacquer cracks all over it. Several other cars had similar lacquer cracks, too.

I guess Jack's thing was buying old cars, slopping some paint on them, and making them run, then on to the next one. Cars patched with Bondo, or mat and resin, and no attempt made even to hide it. Some cars are survivors that haven't been obviously goobered, though. Saw a '76 Pontiac LeMans coupe with 4 very nice Avanti wheelcovers on it. There's all the value right there.

None of the Studes are show cars, and probably all of them would need at least some work to make "driver" status. Some cars there I did like: '56 Caddy Fleetwood, '76??? Caddie Eldorado, '56 Metropolitan, '68 Datsun 240Z. Some of the Jags are nice, but they are money pits.

This should be a fun auction to attend, June 23-24, I think. (double-check that!) I'm told they will have some consignment cars, too. This isn't going to be a B-J class of auction, few of the cars, even the nominally high-dollar ones, are in high-dollar condition. I definitely plan to go.

Gord...did you recently view these cars? Is the Lark wagon in good enough condition to be a 'driver'? If you were to lay-down your own hard-earned $ on the Lark wagon, how much would you buy it for? 68 240Z???? is that a typo, or did you mean 68 510? ya, random questions I know, just one more...are you taking a trailer to the auction? Regards, Junior

Corvanti
02-23-2013, 09:23 PM
it appears the 240-Z is a '73. even if some are "incorrect", i would think that some may be picked up at a low price. it also seems to be a great cause for the school at the same time...

Regards, Junior

Saw them today. Would the Lark wagon make a driver? Maybe, barely. Probably has some structural rust in the body. I wouldn't go over $2000 for it, unless I really, really wanted one badly.

Its a 240Z, I guess it is '73, not '68. Just went by the placard in the windshield; shoulda known better. Has some rust in it, (don't they all?) but looks OK at first glance. It would definitely need rust repair and a full paint job. But they are neat cars....

02-23-2013, 09:51 PM
Yep, this auction could be a great deal for bargain-hunters. I won't take a trailer to the auction, as Olds is little more than 30 miles from home, and I can run back and get the trailer in less than an hour.

The maroon one? It has a later-model Ford big-block in it, maybe an FE-series 390, with "Holley" cast-aluminum tappet covers. Might be a driver, but no show car.

bumping this thread as a reminder...I had forgotten, but my daughter's friend just texted her about the auction asking her if I knew studes were in it...how nice that a 20 year old remembers to remind old farts (well semi-old farts like me) about available studes. anyways, auction in a week, sorry won't be there, going to the diablos greaseball bash instead, fingers crossed for some decent weather. cheers, junior.

Either most of these were reupholstered or the Studebaker vinyl tricked them into thinking they had leather. Of course, there are many other errors in the auction listings.
Unless I have recently gotten out of touch with prices, auction fever must have prevailed (or are these figures in Canadian not US dollars [not that that would make much difference]).

"Auction Fever" prevailed, and possibly a tribute to the several volunteers who spent untold hours cleaning, waxing, getting them to run, and hauling these vehicles to the auction site. I heard the other night these volunteers received little or no recognition for their efforts on the college's behalf.

I don't think auction fever prevailed. There were some real bargains on Jaguars and other nice cars. As usual, I think we are underestimating what our cars are worth.

Any "bargains" at that auction are what they truly may have been worth; but definitley not more.

There should be TWO classes of buyers. Ones who are knowlegable of what they are buying, know the product inside & out and pay the true market price. Then there are those who have some spare $$$ around to buy a car as an 'investment' hoping to make a few dollars from it without doing any research on it aside from 'some' prior knowledge of a particular model increasing in value every year, and drive the values artificially high.

Craig

09-06-2013, 11:50 AM
Yep, there were no bargains. Certainly not in the Jag department. Few of the cars were what one would call "nice". Some were decent, unmolested originals, and many were the victim of slap-dash "restorations". None of the Studes pictured above were nice cars, and the poor little Champ is a parts truck at best. Nasty rust in it, and even the floorboards are Bondo.

The M16 (1 1/2 ton), Gord called it a 1 ton which would make it an M15, and Craig's post of the sales results call it a 3 ton? From the looks of it the sales price seems quite resonable. Anyone know what condition the cab was in?

gordr
09-17-2013, 11:39 AM
On that M truck. I don't remember now. If it had 20" wheels, it's probably an M16, making it a 1.5 ton. The cab was rough; not super rusty, but plenty of the typical stress cracks, and the cardboard headliner was half gone. If you want an M16, I have a better one at home you could have for less money, and it has a 245 in it that runs well. And a hydraulic dump box.

As an aside, I had 20" wheels on my M15. They were on the production order. They were lug centric as opposed to the hub centric wheels that are on an M16. I liked them. They made the M15 even more "cartoon like" (which is a good thing in my opinion).

It could be that the M15s with 20's had smaller tires and didn't require the spacers. These tires didn't come close to hitting anything lock to lock. Also, the wheels are different than an M16 (lug centric vs hub centric) and may have been narrower or a different offset.

Sad to say, but these auctions will be coming up many times in the years to come. The grim reaper could take many of us in the next 10 years. we're not all going to live to be 100 and over. This includes me. The Barrett Jackson auction on TV now has a lot of nice cars going cheap.

Well! Another few cars and trucks from the same collector were auctioned at today's sale at Michener-Allen's auction site in Calgary. There were two Diamond T trucks, a '35 and a '40, a '40 International pickup, and '70 International pickup, and a '29 Federal truck. The '70 Cornbinder was a survivor, all the other trucks were "restored", for some value of the word "restored". Also a '50 Chev sedan, rough, and a '63 Avanti, survivor, which had been repowered with an SBC. A local chapter member snagged the Avanti, for what I think was a fair price for what it is. I will be tasked with making it roadworthy. All these vehicles were gifts to Olds College, too. Whoever did the engine swap into the Avanti used 65-66 Studebaker mount brackets, so the engine sits right. That's about all that is right with the swap, though. Throttle linkage, wiring, and hose work is crude. It does run, but rough. Looks like a set of Delrin control arm bushings were installed. Also looks like rear axle was swapped for another model 44, since the radius rods and rear sway bar are not there.
