The car is a model 55 Six, definitely not a President. If it were i would buy it!

Looks like the same car that was for sale several years ago from California.

EDIT: Upon further review---pretty sure some of these pictures are from California when it was up for sale previously. Now have to wonder if it is a scam.

As Richard said, were it a President it would be an eight cylinder and, I've seen at least a half dozen of these in better condition so, no doubt more than 10 exist. A very worthwhile project but...$21,500? :ohmy::rolleyes:

A '32 Studebaker Six St Regis Brougham Regal coupe is worth quite a bit more than the regular standard coupe, but it will probably stay unsold at that price, it's missing too many pieces, including the special chrome artillery wheels. At least there are two on the sidemounts.

What else besides 6 cylinders differs from a President?

Shorter wheelbase, smaller headlights, narrower bumpers, narrower wheels, smaller tires, less elegant interior, shorter hood, smaller grill, Tryon pin spring eye mounts vs ball bearing spring eyes, smaller, non-adjustable Houdaille shocks and a bunch of other little things.... However, all Studerbaker branded cars had safety glass, free-wheel and Startix start systems.

Richard, what did you depict in the photos other than it being a Six?

Correct on each item except the smaller headlights. All the '33's had the same size headlights.

Well, all 1932 and 1933 Studebakers used the same sized headlights! They were Glolites.

My question was what in the pictures told it was not a President other than the engine size??

Well, all of the factors in the response from 63R2 hawk. First thing tough the shorter body with door opening in back intersecting the fender. On the President the bodies were much longer.

I have went and looked at this particular car. All of the artillery wheels (6) are there. I think 1 hub cap is missing. The car appears complete except for the rear bumper. There is no rust thru anywhere that I could find on the body and the fenders are in excellent condition. The seats are there on the inside but most of the interior is in bad shape, not much that could be re-used. Condition of engine is unknown and I did not even try to turn it over. The starter was off and that may have been what parked it years ago. Could someone off opinions on the car's worth? I'm of the opinion that for the car to be enjoyable to me I would change the running gear. The owner had bought the car to rat rod and had plans of installing a diesel engine. My thoughts are to leave the body mostly stock and install a Studebaker V8 with an S-10 5 speed and a more modern rear, maybe a Ford 8". I think the car can be purchased for much lower than the original listing. Is it worthy at this price point? It's been for sale a while so it doesn't look like anyone is going to step up and purchase to restore. The owner is not a Studebaker guy so important details and advertising to the Studebaker crowd has not been his focus. I think I would like to add it to my Studebaker collection but would assist someone with the desire to restore instead of what I would intend.

Thanks,
Dwayne

What's he asking for it?

The last advertised price was $15k. He told me he would take $12k and we have not negotiated further. I actually offered $8500. I really like the car and the body is in good condition, but seems like a lot for a car that needs a small fortune spent to make it road worthy.

Yeah, doesn't look like $8500 at this point.

It's far easier to itemize the the few items that interchange between the 55 and the President. They are the things that are hung on the bodies- radiator shell, and maybe windshield, and the trunk. The two are totally different cars. It's attempting to think that the bodies are the same, they are not. However, I believe that the bodies are the same for the President and the Commander. I'm sure Dick will correct me if I'm wrong.

Bodies are definitely NOT the same for the '32 Commander and President St Regis. President is longer. Bodies ARE the same for the Dictator Eight (model 62) and Six (model 55). In fact everything will interchange between these latter two models except the engine.

Thanks for the correction. I thought that I had learned something in Montana, from the guy who owns three bodies. As always I defer to to the man who knows.
