This was the Studebaker Land Yacht. No clue on the reserve but, worth much more than the current bid.

This crap about my message being to short is extremely stupid...Must be at least ten letters, items or spaces. Just do an ellipsis (three periods...) before and/or after...;) Example: ...drool...

If I had not been in this mania for the past forty years and accumulated more samples than my budget and space permits, THIS SKYWAY WOULD BE MINE !

Not without a bidding war with me!:mad:;)

I had a blast doing my '48 Business Coupe.:) If only I still had the money, youth, and energy:(...I think this one would be just as much fun:!:.

Here's another secret most of the current auto enthusiasts don't seem to understand. Even as early as 1941, this car, with that Big Six, and overdrive, is capable of cruising on today's interstates. Give this beauty its original black gloss paint, and mechanicals renewed to factory specs...it would motor over to your local cruise-in with competence equal to any modern machine money can buy...and do it with elegance none of them could match.:cheers:

Speaking of elegance, a Schrock Brothers restoration of that steering wheel core would be the finishing touch.:cool:

Brad,

I knew of a '42 President Skyway west of Philly, I bought a Champ from the owner 10 or more years ago. Had 3 NOS fenders with it, wish I had been able to buy it.

Not sure if its a secret or not. The PA Turnpike opened the year before with a speed limit of 70 mph. One of the first publicity photos of the hexagon-shaped tollbooths showed a '40 Commander next to it.
