Why repaint or restore it? Chrome the bumpers, freshen the interior, do some light mechanicals and enjoy...it's already got a battery hold-down, for Pete's sake, so you're halfway home to having the perfect driver and cruise Studebaker! :woot: :cool:BP

I agree with you. That car would get lots of attention just like it sits. No need to do much to enjoy it.

This one would make a good stable mate to my Maui Blue Land Cruiser. A little upholstery work, chrome, correct engine paint, and you're good to go. Adding an overdrive...even better!:)

Yes, that's a nice car as is.

What's the black thing above the door pull on the interior picture?

That's a place where the cloth upholstery is worn away.
