    I can, I looked at it closely in person. It was a VERY solid vehicle that needed everything for a total restoration. I believe that the engine could have "run" with less than 10 hours of attention. Beyond that it was anyone's guess on hours and cost. bIt was virtually rust free. The steal was the Coupe Express next to it, not as pretty but just as solid. Crazy prices................. but people willing to buy old Studebakers at good money.
    Cool! Thanks for the comments.

    Most of what you seek was discussed in other threads/topics on this auction. Do a search and I think that you will find answers and opinions.

    Any idea what year the La Palma Car Show Picture is from Sebastian? I recognize Doug Hughes's '63 Lark but from that ANGLE without seeing much of the Rear of the roof and rear glass, few would notice that it is actually a '63 with a 250 c.i.d. Six Cylinder Engine (yes 250!) and a '66 front clip.

    The guy next to it, looks a LOT like ME!

    One good thing about Studebaker's, is their ability to mix and match. And the fumy thing is, it generally looks better that way.

    I quite agree. Actually, almost anything is an improvement on the '58 front clip...

Went for $9,000, and I would probably have been in a bidding war, which I have done when live at auctions, and always lost out to someone who would have bought the item at ANY cost. Oh well, the car was too nice to modify, although I have always wondered if one could place a '57 front clip on this '58 model. Wouldn't be too hard, and there were lots of '57's at this auction at reasonable prices. I guess I saved myself a lot of money and a lot of time on a project I may not be able to live long enough to complete.

    What an amazing collection. So far my favorite so far are 55 president that is spectacular, super straight and solid lark convertible, and tan Packard Hawk is amazing! Incredible original leather, very clean and complete, even a roll of mylar in the trunk. Wish I could post pictures here, but I'll put them on Facebook.

    I'm counting the days for the new owner to become a new member looking for those parts.
    OR, you might find it on Ebay or Craigslist, etc., like the blue Lark convertible in this auction did: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...hlight=college

    (Not to say he's going to flip it, but it is a possibility.)
