The presentation by the auction company is great. So many detailed pictures. I especially like the two 57s. Thanks for posting this.

Nice pictures and presentation. Should be a great buy for someone local. The cars do remind my of an old riddle: what did the dog say when he was set down on some sandpaper?

The " '64 Cruiser" is a Canadian Built 1965 Cruiser with a Factory 283 V8 and Flight-O-Matic.

The Decklid view verifies the Engine view, the Solid Color Steering Wheel and the '65 A/C Unit, so not likely a GM Engine swap in a '64.

None of these appear to be affordably restoreable, too many years in the Weather and on the ground.
They appear to have been hauled around by Forklift and all doors bashed.

Note the body tag on the brown 57 2 door. Body number "50". That's pretty low.

The '65 Cruiser is well equipped- besides the AC it has power steering and brakes, split reclining bench seats, push button radio and windshield washers! But, it is a pretty major restoration project.

I wish I had more notice so as to arrange storage.

Those cars are gonna go for cheap.
And that usually isn't a good thing... :(

The filler neck for the gas on the Lark wagon is located SO low it seems anyone older than a four year old would need to see a Chiropractor after each fill-up! Different by Design - or not.

Looks like I purchased a car. I plan on being there on Wednesday . If you purchased a car, I will have the tools to pull the rear drum while I am there

If anybody on this thread bought the 64 cruiser and plans to part it out, Im interested in some pieces.

Lumpy, I got it for a cool 125.00. However, it is a 65 not a 64.

Congrats to all who got a Studebaker at this auction. I hope for whatever reason you purchased it, it turns out well. Seems like there were some deals there. However, I thought the real steal of the auction was the trailer for $17! It came with a couple of days fire wood too. :)

Dang, I stopped bidding at 15!

Just went to look at the 51 Studebaker Starlight. It looks pretty good. Rear fenders, front fenders look pretty good. It needs new trunk pan. That I can do. Needs a total restoration. Still Happy with the purchase. Also, I ended up with extra front 51 fenders. Very Happy.
