    Are those smooth lenses on the tail lights original? I like them better than the ones with the sort of egg crate on the plastic.

    Lovely car!

      I had the privilege of meeting Domenic (restorer/owner) while he was restoring this car. A very conscientious worker, devoted to countless hours of effort, sweat, & sacrifice. All the while, a family to look after, and the town's Fire Chief. Being a hundred, or so, miles away, we have not had much social contact, and I don't know what has motivated his decision to sell the car. I know that the ones I have spent so much time on...If I decided to sell, the very first thing I would do afterward is develop an instant case of "Seller's Remorse."

      I don't know what he's asking for the car, but I can say with assurance, Even if it needs something we don't know about...the hard work has been done!

        Absolutely beautiful! My first Studebaker was just like it in Chippewa green and Lombard green. Immaculate work! Congratulations! Watch out, Wayne Carini, you have a worthy competitor!

          Wow! He really brought that crusty old thing back from the dead. The vast majority of C/K cars found like this turn into hot rods. Congratulations on a beautiful restoration. What is the asking price?

            That is because this is a 1954, the Lenses are not even close to the same, or fitting a 1953.

            Very nice as it was in the "after" posts when it was being restored to perfection.

              jclary, John knows the car and my nephew remembers John very well they had a few conversations about Studis.

              Thanks for looking the reason for selling is the fear of someone hitting the car.

              I spent last weekend with Domanic and he really hates that the car sits in his garage and NOT SEEN.

                    That sure is a beautiful car. I might have to sell one of my Model A's to make room for another Stude.

                        Well, they're sweet! I don't remember noticing the difference from the 53 before.
