3/19/07.....Back on ebay....no reserve....those
who bid on it before go for it!!!! I would like
to keep "Charlene" in our close knit family.....

Mr. Shaw...this will be it for my advertising on
the forum....I have probably already spent my nickle.

*****************************************************************

Put this on top of things:

FYI, For those who may have bid on "Charlene" (I recognize
a couple of your "Call Signs") last week and got a second
chance offer... Sorry but it wasn't us....we were "scamed".
While I have reported the on going issue to ebay, we may just
have to ride out the storm......"Charlene" has been relisted,
early this morning for a 2nd go around.

Thanks for your understanding.

glen

*******************************************************************

As much as I hated to do it....I put "Charlene" on Ebay :(

Where we now live, the roads are dirt and are worst than washboard condition which are certainly not to the liking of "Charlene". We are over 3 miles from the closest asphalt of any type, so I am hoping that some one will take her home and give her plenty of asphalt to run around on. David Carter did all the restoration on her as a project before he got the needs for a 51 Bus. Coupe. I know Dick Steinkamp and maybe a couple of others on this forum, know about David's work and maybe even had a hand working on "Charlene".

Thanks and that is my ad for this forum [8D]

Thanks Clark....not a happy day in the "Zone"....
When we were in Ramona, "Charlene" loved to be
out every day and then some....So we can only
hope that she will get a good home! With no ruts
or washboards to travel over.....

David was living in San Jose and I was living in Santa Cruz (15 miles apart) when David restored this car. We've both moved since then.

I saw the car when David first dragged it home and several times during the restoration. The car was a very nice, rust free, original to start with. David is an absolute perfectionist! All his work is impeccable. This is probably not the most desirable Studebaker model, but this car is VERY special.

If you want a BEAUTIFUL Stude that you can drive anywhere and win trophys to boot...at a fraction of the cost of a similar C/K...this is it.

Without me reading the ebay ad, did this thing ever get Overdrive? I don't believe it was so equipped when David finished it.:)

OK![B)] I'd forgotten it was automatic. But here's why I asked that question. And I hope Glen won't be upset that I say this....

I can remember David lamenting the roadability of this thing once it was finished. By "roadablility" I mean speed and mileage. Of course, David was using it in the Silicon Valley area and the traffic there does not treat a 50+ year old car with much respect.

So my question was spawned by what I remember David saying about it's performance.

As Dick has said, it's a beauty to behold! I've seen the car in person myslef. No new Studebaker was that meticulously built![:0]:D And I can appreciate Glen's apprehensions over treating it harshly on washboard roads.

Glen,
That DG250 is a three (3) speed automatic...not 2 speed as indicated in your listing. It did start out in 2nd gear in '53, however (except with a full throttle start).

Not me Mr. B....I appreciate the question! "Charlene",
as far as I was concern, was never going to be a high
speed wonder, I knew that when I got her from David
and he was very open and honest. When I was in Ramona
(near San Diego) it was just perfect, 35mph town and now
with the new raditor, she can now get up to 60 on the
paved secondary roads in and around Chino Valley and
Prescott, without a heat stroke and keep up with the
best. But AZ interstates at 75mph +....she was never
intended to be on, nor are the washboards out from town.

I just hope, that if she does sell, the new owner will do as
I did and realize her limitations and just take rides down
the boulevard, like she was intended to do in 1953.

Dick, thanks for the info on the DG250, I will correct
the ad. I know at some point David told me that, but I
must have been "asleep at the wheel" or it is in all of
his notes somewhere, that is kept, when he was doing the
make over. I am thinking that it is a transplant to replace
the orginal....as I met a gentleman at the PacSouWest meet
in 2003 that new about "Charlene" and said He provided David
the tranny.

Thanks all for all the nice comments...."Charlene" is blushing!

Yeah, rightfully your Charlene would have had a DG-150. Essentially the same as a 250 but made for the lighter duty Champion and engineered to start out in 2nd gear when the lever was in "D" position. In '54, the Champions got 1st gear start in their 150s while the V8 (which sported a DG 200) were still starting out in 2nd when in "D". Go figure!
For '55, the V8 unit was now called the DG 250 and both it and the DG 150 in the Champion cars started out in 1st gear when in "D".
There were later variants that had an "M" suffix but I don't know what that suffix denoted.

Anybody else bid on Charlene? I was the first to put a bid in and it was the only bid I wagered. The car bid on up way more than my max, but didn't meet Glen's reserve. Then I get an offer to hit a BIN for $1K[}:)]on a "second chance offer".

Gotta be a scam! Of course, if it ISN'T, Glen, tell me where to send the dough![:p];):D
