It's on Craigslist in the Denver area. Surface rust, but for $300 it's a steal. This is the same body used for the 1937 Dictator coupe.

I was looking at pictures of other Studebakers of the era. This is a 1936 body (you can tell by the dash). Wish I could play with it.

There will be others ... did you see the 64 Commander 2 door in LA?
That could be built like Teds 'brown wrapper', BUT without having to
stick to the "pure stock" rules.:D;)

I should have just made the deal as soon as I saw it and then resold it to one of you. I might have made a little bit, but it would have been good to know it wasn't going to someone to chop it up.

I just couldn't have moved it (I'm 600 miles away) so I would've had to hope for a very quick deal. Probably wound't have worked.

Yepper, saw that, but what I want is a solid '59 - '60 sedan. I'd be happiest with no engine, was a 6 cylinder, was a stick, interior shot, no power anything. I have all the parts to put together a nice little sleeper, and I'm planning anything BUT pure stock. ;):D

Oh, btw, the Plain Brown Wrapper belongs to George Krem. Ted is the fella who wrenches and pilots it, (the pilot position is something that I'm certain makes all the hard work well worth it). [8D]

Thanks a million for the heads up on it Scott. Sometimes ya win, sometimes not, and I really do believe in that "was meant to be" stuff. Like I've been saying, I have eeenough Studebakers, so it wasn't a big deal. I would have liked to put together a nice little, all Stude, "rat rod", (no chop), that or find my Lark sleeper. I have to get down to just a couple Studes, time, room, effort and money are my only limiting factors. :D

Scott,

Next time you might try asking for a little help from your friends. You're just liable to find some right in the vicinity.

Sorry guys, I saw the ad three minutes after it was posted. The owner turned out to be one of the guys on my bowling team. The rear end had been hit hard and is missing from the front edge of the trunk lid back but I bought it anyway. It's only 4 miles from me so I'll be picking it up this week. Mike.

I hope you do something good with it Lookout. Maybe post pictures of your progress. It'll be an interesting project.
