Actually, I think he meant to say if you were blind, and stood 20' away, it wouldn't look too bad. Of maybe it's a 20-miler car?

All this car needs to look as described is a nice pair of cataracts.

Hmmm, didn't someone once say tht beauty is in the eye of the beholder? Must have been the same guy that's selling this car!

Hi
Not only is that a stretch, but incredibly, someone hit the Buy-It-Now for $1,900!!!!!!
What he got is unknown engine and transmission condition, likely brake system all needing rebuild, all the body, paint and chrome ("just dull, not many pits"), see the hanging headliner, and I'd bet raggedy seats......boy that guy sure knows a choice buy when he sees one!
If the buyer is reading this page; our best wishes, goodness knows you'll need 'em!!

How do you park a car in a garage and suddenly "find" it 30 years later?

That's the way I would rather buy a Studebaker. I'm going to completely disassemble it anyway. Clean, patch weld, blast, paint it and put it together. I get more thrill out of that than buying one that is completed. If I want a completed car i'd buy a new one. If I had a new one I would drive it a couple of years and get rid of it. My 51 Champion 2 dr looked like that when I brought it home In 1982 I finished it in Sept 1983 and been driving it every since. Also have 4 other Studebakers. And my wife drives a 65 Mustang for a daily driver. We are just not in to new cars.
