  • Virgil Marple Studebaker collection to be sold

    Received a phone call from Virgil's long time mechanic/car caretaker that the family is selling off his collection of over 200 cars and trucks of which nearly 100 are Studebakers.
    There will be no auction,cars being sold one or a few at a time.
    Numerous vehicles have already been sold to a number of Virgil's closest car collector friends.
    I will be going there in the next day or two to see what's available.
    I asked and can make a inventory and take pictures of cars and trucks for sale.
    All vehicles have a fixed price....this is not a show up and haggle sale.Buy or walk away is what I was told.
    Watch this post as I will update it after I get pics and info.
    I will also provide a contact number of the individual tasked with the sell off.
    Due to it being Spring and muddy conditions I was asked to mention no more than 2 cars can visit at a time.
    All vehicles have been inside since Virgil owned them.
    I am editing this post to say that all the vehicles have been appraised by a outside source to determine values.

              I will be taking pics and getting prices. He had both of what you mention. As a number of cars have been sold I can't say what is still available.
              I will be there either Tuesday or Wednesday this week.

                Until I get there I can't say for sure if it is part of the sale.

                  I was expecting a VanDerBrink auction being that the collection is so extensive, though it would have been difficult auctioning these vehicles being so tightly packed in the buildings.
                  Though I am not in the market for anything right now, I look forward to any photos and pricing that you share.

                      First update of 3
                      A number of the cars have been sold and are still there due to the long lasting winter/short spring.
                      I was in a 3 of the buildings and ran out of time and battery for the camera. There are still 2 buildings to go with some of the best cars in one of them.
                      I still have to take pics of a bunch of Avanti's. I took 1 pic per car to get the ball rolling.
                      For those who would wish me to correctly identify Avanti's by Avanti or Avanti II do that in the privacy of your own home.
                      A reminder that the prices were set by a appraiser and are NON-NEGOTIABLE.
                      If anyone needs more information they can call Trevor at the number listed below and he will answer questions and send more pictures.

                            Thanks for the pics Bob.

                            Regarding the red/white ‘53 Studillac, I know it’s history going back to at least 1965. I’m 99% sure it’s a genuine Bill Frick car, though others who never saw it have disagreed. I’ll be happy to share what I know if anyone is interested in purchasing that one. The car needs restoration but it ran great when I owned it and I think the $8000 price tag is a steal.
