  • Lost Studebakers Need New Home... Soon For Auction

    I was given access by Ron Hackenberger to about 500 or so of the 750 or so vehicles in his collection that will soon (July 15, 2017) be auctioned. He is a Studebaker guy and there are a lot of them there. I am not a Studebaker guy, so the importance of some probably whooshed over my head. Since some on this site have recently helped me with a magazine project on the Zip Van, I thought I would post a few of the pics I snapped. Here are 19 of the ones I thought nifty. I will state this now that I am NOT shilling for VanDerBrink auctions. I just figured you guys would like an exclusive preview... and it helps Ron as well. Good for everyone in my book. At a very busy time in his life, Ron gave me access to the one and only Cerlist Diesel power Zip van (on another post) and this is me repaying that access. VanDerBrink has some pics up on the linked site below but I gather they are going to get all the stuff out, clean it up and photograph them for the auction book. That process will be starting soon. You guys get to see them in their raw state.

    Without further ado, here are the pics. I don't know how many I can post on one post, so I may replay to myself with more. Enjoy!

          Thanks for posting. I enjoy seeing these cars in their dusty storage state before the "spit and polish" for the auction. Must be one heck of a collection.

            In the second picture, I want the 50 Champion Starlight. I'm sure it will sell cheap because it has Commander taillights in it. LOL

            That looks like it might be a Renault next to it, by the single bolt hubcap, but I don't recognize the model.

              What is the best guess of the starting bid on that Packard Hawk? Everybody wants/needs one of these.

                It's a 4CV and there are a couple of others there too. There a lot of oddball small cars. Fiat 600s, Subaru 360s, Honda 600s, Crosleys (including a Farm-o-Road) and Bantam cars out the Wazoo. Austin Americas, Beetles, Googomobiles, Tatra, 3 Citroen Maharis, Hona Civic CVCC, a bunch of oddball electric cars, Willys Aeros, a Trivan, a Saab Sonnett, a Saab Wagon, a Mini-Moke, a Coot, two Amphicars (one with less than 1,000 miles on it), a DeLorean, three BMW Isettas (that I saw). And some stuff I couldn't ID.

                  Somewhere in the many many many photos I have seen-- I've noted that there are at least two...

                  Unless the one inside has been photographed outside as well. They looked to be the same color though.

                      What was the color name of the one in this photo? It looks pink to me but that may be the lighting or the camera.

                        If it's original, it's Jewel Beige.

                          Mr Hackenberger seems to have liked Studebaker trucks. He had a really nice collection of them! A few nice '56 cars too. There is a pic of the Packard-Hawk in the yard and it is definitely a pink of some shade. Like a sweet-pea pink. There is also a... '61(?) Tahiti Coral Lark as well. Looks like a sweet little car. But what a seriously nice collection of trucks! The stake-bed looks to have been a frame-over. Still a beautiful truck though. Note the thirties vintage travel trailer behind it. Love that Diesel Transtar too! Anyone know what year that would be? '59, '60... maybe? Then there's the Jeep COE pickup, very cool, love those. They look like a Jeep pickup and a VW pickup merged. Look behind the Jeep, is that another Packard hawk or just a '58 Packard sedan? Would love to take a day or two walking through that! Wish I could have gotten to the Vail Az sale too. Either way I'd have to keep well hydrated or I just might drool to death!

                            That 58 Golden Hawk sure looks lonely. All it needs is a little love and Lark shine. It's already got a battery hold down.
