    Hi
    If you missed your opportunity to buy the car for $20K at Hershey, add another $7K to it and grab it before someone else realizes how the "celebrities" all owned one then you can too!!!!
    Here is the link to the Volo listing.

    Nice President, but the Studebaker world is a small one, they'll have to find a rube with too much money to buy this one!

    I guess you missed my point, I was agreeing with Bob Palma's post that perhaps a change in those in charge resulted in the new "hype" that was in fact missing when I bought a car from them. I was certainly not defending the current ebay ad, just surprised at the 180 degree turn in their ad policy from a honest, informative ad, to used car hype.

    I wonder why I do not know that car. It not only has New York plates, but I think that those letters are from this area of the state. Maybe it is something that someone recently bought from elsewhere for resale. My first Studebaker was a 1957 President Classic.

    Good post, Neal! We are going to have to start going by the internet time clock to see who is the first to notice no battery hold-down on cars posted for sale. (I'd say we'll have to score double points to the poster for a car that is represented as near perfect, as is this one!) BP

    Yes, this looks like the car that was for sale at Hershey. It is funny that I was talking to a bunch of Stude guys while looking at the car. The owner was not around and we wondered how much he wanted for the car. We all surmised that it would go for $12,000 to 15,000. I guess we were only half right!

    Hi
    JDP, your experience notwithstanding, it is still unethical of them to advertise the car as "ONE OF 100 SPECIALLY BUILT PRESIDENTIAL CLASSICS" without offering substantial proof that it is. As too is the implication that celebrities of the period were owners of some of those 100 specially built cars.

    Everyone on this forum knows how desperate Studebaker-Packard was for car sales in 1957 and the company wasn't about to limit the production of ANY model as long as there was one addition sale to be had. Example: the '57 Golden Hawk 400 wasn't limited to 41 cars, that was just the number they were able to sell.

    My opinion of Volo, and it's just my opinion, is they are stretching the truth to the breaking point trying to wring all the money they can out of this car and many others they offer.

    Some feel collector car values are dropping. Perhaps this is the new level some dealers are stooping to to get a sale..
