Welcome to the forum Bob! Would love to see some pics. If you have any questions just ask. BTW the first thing you might want to buy is a shop manual, avaible from most of the Stude. vendors. Happy Studebakering!!!!! Gary H:)

Welcome to our world, Bob. A bullet-nosed Starlight's a pretty cool car (as are all Studes, of course![^])

Don't know the condition of your Windstar but we'll assume you mean your Stude's in pretty nice shape. One thing I CAN guarantee you - that Stude will draw more attention than any Windstar (or CJ2, for that matter)has ever dreamed of!

Come back and tell us more about it once it's in your garage. We'll even help you share a photo of it if you're willing.;)

Bob, welcome to the ranks of Studebaker owners, and welcome to the best automotive forum anywhere.

Once you have yours home, give us more details and a picture or two.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Studebakers. Two things to get you off on the right foot. Join the Studebaker Drivers Club (this site) and the car is a Starlight.
