Pretty good deal at $350. Even tho I'm only 300 miles away, I don't need any more projects![V]

You know, if I wasn't moving next week, I'd be all over that cruiser like white on rice <g>. They are great drivers. Also, you never know what "engine is bad" means. It might be toast, but it might just smoke a lot and just need valve seals, or something else relatively simple.

The air is easily worth what he's asking for the whole car. Sell the air, and have a free cruiser!

Here's one for you and Sal, JP.

The air is not a Studebaker unit. The car does have power disc brakes and the body looks good. I wonder if it is an R1 or has an engine dress up kit. It has a four barrel and what look to be chrome, rather than yellow, rocker arm covers. I think that the car is worth twice the price, but not when I factor in more than that for shipping to NYS.

Yeah Gary but even aftermarket air is worth something. The brackets and all that that fit the engine would be valuable to someone with a Stude V8 car that wasn't worried about originality. ;)

You're right Gary...but if is an aftermarket unit that was made for a studebaker (correct compressor brackets, etc.) and it's complete, it's worth the price of the car.

Mr. Biggs, we are thinking way too much alike (similar posts 2 minutes apart). I'm stoked if I'm thinking like you, but it's kind of scary if you've started thinking like me.;)

I'm all over it, if it's still there. My California 'dealer' has two more to get out there anyway.

I agree with both of you (Bob and Dick) that the air is worth the price of the car. I was merely pointing out, to those that don't know, that the A/C unit is not a correct Studebaker unit. I didn't want someone to buy it for a car that they are trying to keep correct. I did say that the car was worth twice the price and pointed out the pdb and R1.
