OK......if there is any time to see what the Stude market is like ...its now....with this car. Beautiful car...presented at the right time , with a great, thorough & I believe, honest description (don't know the seller ). I'm putting a guestimate of $17.5K..maybe as high as $19K. Not an Avanti, Hawk, but a nice Lark......anyone else ?

Don't get me wrong I LOVE the car, always one of my favorites (4spd droptop) It has great colors, love it. But I've noticed lately the values are not what they were a few years back, unless its supercharged, and they seem to be slipping a little.

OK the $12,300.00 may be a little low, I was on my first cup of coffee when I originally posted, but I'd think the owners reserve would be in the $15,000.00 neiborhood, & I don't think it will hit that mark.

I hope for the seller I'm wrong, and if the buyer is from this forum then I hope the $12,300.00 mark is right;)

I agree that it is a gorgeous car, but I have to take issue with this statement by the seller about picking it up with a trailer: "but I would not suggest it be driven long distances just because it is an old car and I would hate to have the buyer put needless miles on this great low mile car." "Needless"??? Who could resist [u]</u>driving[u]</u> this Lark? Plus, it already has over 50K on it.

My '64 has not been on a trailer since 1992, and with a 289 and a 4 speed it is a blast to drive. Yes it has gone downhill over the years, but it still cleans up pretty well.:) It was made to be driven, and I do.:D JWW

I'll say your car cleans up pretty well, John! [8D] I'd like to blast it around myself. :D[}:)]

I sure didn't take you wrong, John, just thought it would be interesting for a bet. I think it's worth more, but I'm not going to bet my house on it, either! You're probably dead on, coffee or not. :D We'll see where it stalls. If that convertible were any other marque it would be through the roof already.

It bid to $10k in the first 16 hours. Bidding will probably slow down or stop for a while. It usually does...especially on 10 day auctions.

Certainly a desirable car, color, equipment, condition.

I like Jack's idea that it is a good test of today's depressed market, and I like his price guess.

Finance the Lark, Capital One will get it done over the phone in minutes, sell the cars you are willing to part with, pay down the loan and have a car you can enjoy and show right away. Sometimes you just need to go for it.

Seriously, that's what I did for my 84 El Camino. I knew I was going to sell my 69 Grand Prix and my 74 El Camino so I financed the 84, sold the other two, made a few more payments and I was done.

That Lark sure looks like something worth stretching for if you want it.

I've been back to the listing, re-read the text, and looked at every picture 4 times just today[:I] I'll be alright though; just dreamin' right now......... someday, when it's meant to be..........

On price, I'm betting mid to high teens, no sale.

You certainly know what's best for you.

I was looking at 2 cars, the '84 El Camino, and a '64 Hawk GT custom with a '53 nose and a Chevy drivetrain. The Hawk was painted but needed to be finished but the car really called to me. It was already in the $15k range with reserve not met but I couldn't stop looking at the listing. So I clicked on the get "low monthly payments" link just to see. The approval was fast and they really didn't care what the car was or how much. The only caveat was a minimum $7500 unpaid.

Once they told me I could have the money I thought better of the $15K+ unfinished Hawk and focused on the El Camino for half the money. Bottom line was that it was simple, fast and the rate was 9.75 for 72 months back in 2006. As silly as it sounds, I was ahead of the game because I was putting out money every month to make the '74 El Camino and the '69 GP right but not making a lot of headway because I was accumulating parts but didn't have the time to do the work. All foreplay but no climax.

The other Elky and the GP needed paint and bodywork and I couldn't write a check for the kind of money that it would take to make them pretty. The more I looked at them the more frustrated I got and the more money I spent on the stuff I would need for the day I actually tore into them.

I won't say I haven't spent any money on the '84 El Camino but it looks good enough to take to shows. I still have to get around to replacing the current drivetrain with the ZZ4 I have in the garage but I can jump in and enjoy it as is. In the long run it's cost me less to finance a car I can use than buy the ones that I need to build.

For years I was a spectator with cars at home but it really is more fun to be able to participate. Life's short. Besides the recession is almost over, gas won't be going up too much further this summer, things are lookin' up!

There's a company that sells the nose it's not factory. The car was built by a guy in Ohio that thought he was Chip Foose. More like Chip Farce but the car looks good on the road. He did the scoops, shaved 1 door handle, filled in the area around the bed that would normally have stainless trim and polled the rear pan. I put in LED lights. Drivetrain is mild 350 with a stock 8 inch 2.76 rear. I have all the pieces to make it as fast as it looks, ZZ4, 3.55 9 inch rear etc. Hopefully this summer after I get the rear back in the Avanti.

I would always buy cars that needed everything do all the mechanical work over time and then the project would grind to a halt because I couldn't write the check for the paint and body. The Avanti took me 10 years. This time I decided that I would sell the two 'projects' that I had and buy something that looked OK that I could play with mechanically but was show worthy the way it sat. Any future purchases will be cars that don't need to be painted, period.

Basically, I bought a paint job with a car attached.

I hear you, Ernie. That's how I ended up with my Lincoln convertible.

I have a baby blue 65 Continental that my father surprised my mother with in 1967. They drove it for 10 years, and I was always in love with it. In 1977 they got a newer one and I persuaded Dad to sell me the 65. I gave him most of my savings plus my 63 Impala SS. I got my license that year, and just loved the car.

Next, me and my gearhead buddies got into a race to see who had the meanest car on the street. No muscle car could come anywhere close to the top end of the Lincoln, but it was a dog otherwise. That fall I was able to buy a worn version of my dream car, 69 Camaro, 350 4-speed. Over the winter I went through it and by end of the school year I had the fastest car on the road! By now I was starting to have some success in oval-track racing as well; so the Lincoln got parked "till I was done racing", since it needed a lot of work anyway. Long story short, the Lincoln sat for my 24-year racing career.

When I finally got out of weekly racing, I decided to finally start on the Lincoln. All those years of non-use have of course not been kind. When I started running numbers I finally concluded that if I was going to spend that much time and money it would make more sense to do a convertible; $30K plus hundreds of hours equals $10K car didn't add up. I bought a running and driving 65 convertible off eBay that needed restoring but was driving for $4K plus $750 shipping from Miami. I drove and enjoyed that car for 2 summers gathering parts until seeing the one I have now on eBay- CA, then TX, then PA car, no rust ever, mostly redone in and out, just the colors I wanted- and about half what it would cost to restore the one I had. I fell in love, bought it, sold the other one for less than I paid, and have enjoyed it more than than I thought possible. Now the car is for sale, and should be going to her new home in the next two weeks; that is, if this guy can come up with the money. I now have lost two sales to guys that had their HELOC closed without warning; maybe this is the one...

That said, business has been a challenge here in NY. The shop is limping along, basically paying salaries. The demand is still strong as ever, but more and more people can't pay; so they're neglecting the cars, getting a shade-tree guy, etc. The car business is in a vise- 4 of the 6 finance companies we used have folded, and the last 2 have really tightened up. Financing used to be our mainstay, but not anymore- we're tiptoeing along with cash buyers, which are getting fewer daily. On top of that, new car dealers are dropping left and right- which is where our inventory comes from... so it's a double-whammy. I used to carry $200K on my floor plan, and have cut that some, but as you know, it all hinges on inventory movement... which takes us back to financing. I've had trouble keeping everything balanced, so that's shaky as well.

I wish I could see where you get your rosy forecast, but I study this stuff daily, and frankly I see just the opposite- in fact worse than any of us have seen. I can give you all the specifics, but this is not the place; suffice to say, I am scared for my business and employees. I put on a brave face for them and try to prepare for what I see coming. I can only prepare, and pray I'm way off and you're right; but I can't ignore the warning signs... so if I could get financing for this sweet car (questionable) I don't think I dare do so right now. So I'll have to settle for dreaming...

As it happens, I did actually dream about that car last night... I saw that car with my nice, fresh, ready-to-install r2 engine, highly detailed

Final word...get your name out to the current owner. Let him know that you could possibly be an interested party, down the road, if he doesn't sell it and ask him to pass your name on to the new owner if he does. Stranger things have happened.

I left the business at the end of March, hopefully for good. It is a struggle right now.

Rose Mist is my favorite '63 color, and on a convertible to boot (no pun intended)--that may very well be the prettiest '63 Lark I've ever seen!

And Bob A.--what a beautiful '65 Lincoln convertible, in what has to be one of the best color combinations as well!

I had my '64 Daytona out around town a bit today. My '63 is still in storage at my sister's about 75 miles away...I have been really negligent in somehow getting over there to drive her home. Gotta get it over here in time for the big Summit Racing show (formerly Wink's), at least!

My '63 is in way nicer shape than my '64, but I swear the '64 seems to garner more comments out on the street. Maybe because it's dark blue and not white, but I do think some of it is that most folks find the '64 facelift more pleasing overall.

Living in Kent, OH (where folks feel protesting is a right since May 4, 1970), there are a bunch of oldsters downtown today picketing with signs, "Fund Healthcare, Not War". Got a 'nice car!' out of one of them, and could hear one older guy say, "That's a Studebaker!"

Anyway, back to the origins of the post...I too am anxious to see what such a gorgeous '63 convert will bring in today's economy. That trunk side panel is unbelievable for an unrestored Lark!

Bill, I wondered if you were driving that car by now! I haven't heard from you lately and wondered if you got the Skytop out, or were dragging your feet to play with the Daytona. :D[8D] I knew you'd like this convertible on ebay. It's a beauty.
I finally got my new steering wheel on tonight that I bought in SB. I'll have to show you. You'll enjoy the color. ;) I could write a Biggs' style essay on what it took to get the old one off, but that's for another day. I will say that the only part left of the former wheel is less than the size of a golf ball.

Bill, I wondered if you were driving that car by now! I haven't heard from you lately and wondered if you got the Skytop out, or were dragging your feet to play with the Daytona. :D[8D] I knew you'd like this convertible on ebay. It's a beauty.
I finally got my new steering wheel on tonight that I bought in SB. I'll have to show you. You'll enjoy the color. ;) I could write a Biggs' style essay on what it took to get the old one off, but that's for another day. I will say that the only part left of the former wheel is less than the size of a golf ball.


Did you get an all-white wheel? You know how I feel about those!:D

Still recovering from a triple-feature at the drive-in; got home at 3:45AM[:0] 8 adults, 12 kids... we never had a chance:) Great time though!

I'd guess the bidding's most likely done until the very end. Sometimes not, but that's usually the case. In any case, good idea, Ernie. I'll be writing the seller. Thanks Kevin and Dave for the peer pressure... if that doesn't do at lest $15K I may croak...

BTW- couple people e-mailed about HELOCs and floor plans, and what they have to do with cars. See my thread about that on Stove Hugger's...

Bill, not all white, but rather two tone w/ black. I had my doubts, but it looks amazing with my interior. Somehow a more vintage look.

Bams, now that your Molly looks to be sold to John, I think a down payment is in order! :D

You know, you're right! Tell you what- I'll put the Molly money down, and you pay the balance; I'll take care of it here and pay it off when things smooth out;) You know you can trust me, since I'll have money invested...........

Hey, I'd rather owe it to you than beat you out of it:D

BTW, it's still at $11,311 today all three times I went back to look at it[:X]

Well, she met the reserve at $17,877. IMO, fair enough; I can't argue with that price.

I did what Ernie suggested, sent the seller an e-mail asking him to pass my info along to the proud new owner in case he decides to sell in the future. It's my most-wanted Stude EVER, hope the new owner loves it too!

No Dave, you didn't come up with the balance, per our deal;)

It's like I said to the seller in the e-mail I sent: Situations and interests change, so you never know, it may come back on the market at a time when I can buy[8D]
