Too bad about the engine on the '64. Still looks to be a fairly nice car for the money.

The '64 Daytona "looks" nice... too bad it does not have its original power plant.

259 from a earlier lark. I was told on this forum that originally it had a 289 that had a bad rod. The owner had the 259 available and put that in the car. All this was before in came east.....originally it was from the northwest us.

Yes, this car was in the Portland, OR area. It had a 259" that had issues, and my parts customer had a very good used 259" engine - thought it was a '59 rather than a '60 as stated in the ad - but no difference. I thought it was odd that a couple of people stated it was "too bad" that it had an earlier engine. Hey - a good Studebaker V-8 is a great engine! The car had lots of parts renewed - front end, axle bearings, rear springs, brakes, etc. It didn't even need that level of new parts, but the then owner wanted it right. So, it should be a great car for a new owner.

Looks like the head light doors were blacked out "just around the bulbs".otherwise I think it appears as it should :!:

You must'a missed that ill-fitting hood and the 'Studebaker' emblems on the fender, eh? :confused: :ohmy: :rolleyes:

Key words "I think",now I see Studebaker instead of Daytona :oops:.maybe the hood isn't latched completely?,either way no biggie.it can either be adjusted,or chalk it up to Studebaker QC - I really think it has less value than the non origional engine it sports :ohmy:.

I just meant that it was too bad the original power plant needed to be replaced at some point because the car did look to me to be fairly stock. Admittedly, I am no expert. Most folks here know much more about Studebakers I will ever know, especially about those cars built in the 1960s. I agree that it is a good thing it at least still has a Studebaker V8 under the hood rather than a SBC, etc. (no offense intended toward those who have done this!)
