Oh Cool! You buy this, you could take Sally Field surfing in Redondo Beach with the Beach Boys! ;)

Like; Surf's UP Dude! :cool:

Well, Sal's 70 now, but she does live in Pasadena...
While we consider that, have a look at this '62 Daytona vert for $8k in Buffalo.

Seems to me I've seen a metallic blue '63 Lark two-door for sale at that exact same location (i recognize the fence) last year. Paint seems kinda unven, though it's hard to tell from just a pic.

I thought about taking a look, but can't get over the "Checker" front end look. And the overhanging bumper/fenders in the back. My knees don't bend that way..!

Kind of a high price for a driver. Interesting story behind it, I wonder what kind of museum this car came out of. Had I the cash, I'd pay it if a drive around the block with Sally was included... Yeah... I had a BIG crush on Gidget!http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/yellow-hd/blushing-smiley-emoticon.gif

Too bad they took out the front seat and painted over the original red.

When the tailgate is down-- it's not much of an issue.

Interesting story indeed.
I enjoyed the link to our (local) Studebaker Museum's eBay photos.
Knowing the car- I have doubts that the next owner would be the fourth.
I don't buy the story about the use it got at the museum either.
It's about ten miles from here-- and I 'work' there from time to time... ;)
So I know how often it moved.

But she did look pretty good that time she was staged for an open house with her sister Betsy~

Having seen the car many times before it left my County, I can say it's a nice one.
I actually tried to get Dad to buy it before it was sold on eBay earlier this year.
But I honestly don't think it's $5500 nice.
