      Good for you Bill... I was beginning to think I was the only one that liked 4 door, 6 cylinder cars! There is a 66 Cruiser six (230) for sale out my way, but it needs A LOT of TLC and it has the vinyl top option.

        A Studebaker with no rust come on now. I don't think there is such a thing.

          A cynic born every minute! Just kidding of course! In the real world rust free Studebakers do exist, but finding them in the "Rust Belt" may be a loosing battle. Ten of our Studebaker collection are rust free and they date to 1931. I didn't even look for them east of the Continental Divide, because I didn't have to because they are all western car and some have original paint and interior too. Sorry if I sound smug, but there are still too many people looking for the right car on the wrong side of the country. Not rocket science just common sense.

            Bill Not trying to be cynic just at this point on a 60 year old car rust free is far and few between. I bought two gt body's from Az a couple years ago. One was from Ca to start with and both had some rust. The CA car was the best and even it had areas that had to be repaired after the shell was sand blasted. Maybe a Ca car with low miles and never left Ca you would have some luck.

              I have the super solid, rust free car. It is a 64 w/o running gear which could be easily built as a Chebby-baker.

                My 66 Cruiser is rust free, but it's a V8. The only rust I've found is surface rust on the original exhaust system. It only has 26,000 miles on it, so should be rust free. I bought this car for a daily driver, but after looking it over I couldn't ruin it by driving it everyday in Indiana. So it sits in the garage and I drive my 63 Cruiser. Thinking on taking the 66 to South bend international meet to sell.

                        I would have to agree with Hallabutt, finding a rust free example East of the divide will be hard. I purchased this 1962 Champ from Oregon about 3 years ago. After restoring a 1960 Champ in 1985, I knew what to look for and what not to buy. 34K original miles, always barn kept, except for running gear upgrades, I haven't touched the exterior except to wet sand and buff it, monumentally rust free--- they are still out there
