I am new to the forum, having been given the task of selling my late father's 1950 Studebaker Champion. The car is fully restored, but it is garaged in Northern California, where nobody is around to assist with the sales process and the SDC Chapter is apparently inactive. It turns out that transporting it to the East Coast where I live is not all that expensive, and I sense that there is more interest for Studey's out here. Would be interested in anyone's input if I would be better served by transporting the car here and running the sales process myself, or leaving it to an auction house in California. Many thanks!

Where is it close to? N. California is twice the size of Conn. 2-dr or 4 dr. I suppose pictures are out of the question at this time. If you don't mind, who is your father? Someone may be familiar with the car.

Do you mean the SDC chapter in Connecticut? The Karel Staple Chapter of Northern California is quite active. We may even be able to get by and take a look at it for you. Send me more info and maybe I can hook you up.

THANKS FOR YOUR PROMPT RESPONSE. IT IS A 4 DOOR (SUICIDE DOORS), 81k MILES, FULLY RESTORED, GARAGED ABOUT 10 MINUTES FROM SANTA ROSA. MY FATHER, ERNIE DUEBENDORFER, BOUGHT THE CAR AROUND 1985 AND RESTORED IT OVER THE NEXT DECADE OR SO. HERE ARE SOME PICS IF THAT HELPS. I HAVE MORE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED.

If thats the way it looks today its a very nice car. I'am sure anyone looking for a 4 dr would be interested in it. Heck just fly to ca. and drive it home. The road trip would be half the fun and a ca. car on the east coast should be easy to sell.

Sounds like a job for Bob Petersen. The Sequoia branch IS the closest one. Don't know who you e-mailed but Bob should be able to help.
Did you see this Bob?

Dave, I sent you a PM.

Since JDP became gainfully employed I haven't seen him and Sal proffering any products from the left coast. He does know how to market.
