I only have a fair grasp of French but can tell you it says interior, bright and body work are done-ready for paint, brakes redone, new shocks front and rear and something about low compression in the 289? Still seems like a nice ride!

Does anything look like it says Automatic or Standard Trans.?

06-30-2015, 12:04 PM
It's an automatic. What's your take on the wire wheels?

Looks like hubcaps.

Serves me right for surfing without my reading glasses.

Ya know, I know this could merely be "le voiture supreme de bondo," but what if it's not?!

The full translation is, "Studebaker ready to paint, most chrome redone, interior very clean, and nothing to do on the body. Brakes newly redone and brake cylinder, new water pump, and front and rear shocks, gasoline tank and sending unit changed, everything works. 289 engine, one cylinder weak." Bois-des-Filion is a suburb of Montréal.

Looks very good for the price, but I don't understand why they would put the chrome back on the car when they know it needs to be painted first. The buyer now has to carefully remove the trim again.....

Do like the looks of it, though. I had a '57 President Classic twenty-five years ago, keep thinking about another one....

UPDATE: Seller's name is Serge Simard. He does NOT speak English, but if you can hack out some French, he is at: 450 951 6731. He says the body is "impeccable" apart from a floorboard hole that was repaired with a welded bronze? plate. Frame is perfect and painted matte black.

He probably was telling you that the floor was replaced by brazing sheet metal patches to the floor. That used to be popular before MIG welding became the preferred method.
