  • Interesting auction result, "Bud" Walters Estate, some Studes mixed in

    This was an auction was held back on the 17th of this month, the results are posted here:
    Sullivan Auctioneers, LLC Raimon G. “Bud” Walters, Jr. Estate Auction

    I like to look over how auctions went, to keep a gauge on car values. This one was a bevy of older cars all sitting out in Kansas, with plenty of candidates for hot rods. There were several Studebakers among them as well.

    Good thing it was too far for me to attend, or I would have bought myself into trouble and a lifetime of projects I'd never get to!

    Interesting auction for sure, Ken; thanks for the link.

    M series trucks went high enough for as rough as they were, eh? Nothing tops the rough 1959 Cadillac professional car for $39,000, though; Lot #673! YEOW! BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

      Thanks for posting. Very interesting to see signs going for many times more than our Studebakers. And when was the last time you saw so many Nash cars?

        Another flat land auction with Studebaker content and lots of WWII eye candy for enthusiasts.

          So many desirable cars in the collection, but most have deteriorated past the point of no return.

            Luckily this is so far away. That Lark may have come home with me.... and a few others as well!

              Without adding them up what'da ya think, between $100,000.00 and $200,000.00 Total Sales?

              If Decimal Dude was here, he'd add them up.

                I can't believe that hearse brought that kind of money. You normally can't give one away, even in better shape than that. I wouldn't want that car if you gave it to me (discounting the fact that I could turn around and sell it to the guy that just paid 39k for it). I don't get it.

                  Don't forget that 10% buyer's premium, that's nearly another 4k on top of that final bid! Ouch!

                    Many funeral homes like to have an older hearse. It is sort of like having an advertising piece that you can also occasionally use for business. I have dealt with funeral homes from New York to Florida that have antique hearses (as well as modern ones). I have even contracted the use of a 1929 Studebaker hearse for when my time comes.
