  • Best way to liquidate a Studebaker collection?

    Gary... I'm hurt![B)] How could you think I would be that shallow to take advantage at this time.[:0] Besides, I would consider other trucks if they have an o/d trans. [}]

    Seriously, I am thinking that an auction would be the surest method to "part" with some of your treasures in a reasonably short time frame. Wish I lived closer.

      You get pennies on the Dollar with an auction at your place. How many have we been to lately that sold stuff for really low prices. Ebay seems to be your best bet. Just my opinion.

          Noramally, ebay, but the big, unrestored trucks may not do well.

                  I had an auction when I sold my farm in Floyd County. It was a sad day. I practically gave everything away.

                          Gary, sorry to hear that things have turned out this way.
                          But on a good note, thank you for saving the 4x4 for me.

                              Gary,
                              I agree that an auction could be very "iffy" and you could take a beating. Your better vehicles might do ok, but the big trucks just have too limited a market. They may even be tough on eBay. I went to a nationally advertised auction in Nebraska a few years ago- a Studebaker-Packard-Saab-Harley auction. The better vehicles brought big money but probably a dozen rust-free, good chrome '55 and '56 Packard parts car sedans sold for $25 each. They had several auctioneers going so I don't know what Harley stuff brought, but I heard it was high. Studebaker "memorabilia" brought big money, but there were many parts bargains (I bought a complete NOS R-3 tach set with the transitor ignition for $35, a NOS Avanti tilt column went for $12.50, etc.). Your tractors would probably do well in a tractor collector auction advertised in club publications though I don't know much about that stuff.
                              So, you might try eBay for your trucks using low opening bids and little or no reserve. Parts- you might want to advertise as a lot or lots.
                              Good luck.
