This is an original car that has been stored inside for over 30 years. The last time it was licensed was 1973. It has a clear title and is currently on Non-op. I purchased the car about 10 years ago with the intention of turning it into a street rod for my wife. Plans change. It has a 6 cylinder engine and an automatic transmission. I put in a fresh battery and gas and it fired right up. No knocks, no smoke. The brakes are a little soft, but they work. Amazing! With the price of gas today, maybe leaving it stock with a 6 is not a bad idea. The seats look great. It must have had seat covers for much of its life. This is a rare original car. My shop # is (530) 272-5928 I work 4 days a week, Monday thru Thursday, 9 to 3:30. If I am not there, leave a message. I will call back.

Sal checked it out Sunday and we made a offer. Nice car, but AT flathead six, nice but incorrect interior, decent chrome, some pitting, needs brakes. I figured we'd be in the car for 9K by the time we added brakes, new white walls and the rest. (been sitting a long time) Good deal for a keeper though, but I bit close to fix and flip.

please hurry up and buy it .... the tempetation is so great for me to buy it ..and resell it at Hot August Nights in Aug .....

.... a year from now people will say " should a .. could a ... would a ".. when they see the same car go for $15,000 ...

or when you get it cleaned it up and get $15,000 on ebay .....from a "rust belt " buyer

even adding $2,000 to transport it to the right coast and just sitting on it makes a lot of sense ...

I talked with a street rod club member that knows the car and it's the real deal .. the guy is a rod builder and is just cleaning out the barn and he's not a Studebaker guy ..

let's see $7,000 ..... if I put $40 bucks on the craps table tonight ..... hmm

If I thought I could get 15K on ebay for a 6 cylinder AT coupe with the wrong interior on ebay, we would not be having this discussion. :)
