    That is a nice looking car! I dont know if Id be able to pass that up if I had the money for it. Tough decision!

    Will you kick yourself in a month if you dont buy it now?

    You cannot restore a 63 Cruiser for 6K. If it is what the pics show it to be it's probably worth the money. You cannot restore your Scotsman for 6K. Even a 6 cylinder rebuild will be close to 3K. Paint and body work will be over 3K. 63 Cruiser will always be a much nicer car to drive with plenty power and comfort. You can buy a done car cheaper than restoring one. Just my opinion and experience.

    To answer the money aspect he was asking for $7500, but said he could let it go for $6000. For us that is double what we can afford for another car; although it is a Classic. I hope I can get pics to work:

    I drove a 63 Cruiser for 8+ years on a daily basis and loved it and the looks. We loved the vanity and front end look. Yes more rounded than the 64-66 but classic!

    I also had a 1963 Cruiser that I used as a regular driver. I liked the car except for the color.

    It is normally best to buy the best condition car that you can. When you say $3000 above what you can afford, it makes me wonder if the Cruiser is overpriced. They are nice cars, but the four door sedans generally bring much less than a two door hardtop and even less than a convertible.

    I tell ya people I haven't been a Studebaker person for all that long. I mean I got a '57 Scotsman from my late father-in-law 2 1/2 years ago. Needs a restoration. For those that know of me it is not that far from road ready. But today I am reading the local paper and they have "city wide garage sales" and there is a garage sale that also lists a Studebaker and a Plymouth. Well the wife says go check it out. I did, I like it. It is show worthy as the owner has trophy's. Oh, it is a '63 Stude Cruiser 4 door sedan, 289 CID, Flight-o-matic. It is Sea Spray Green. Not a catchy color but then this is actually built for a woman. It has a Vanity compartment Not a glove compartment and a raised part on the passenger side floor that (as the owner said) has something to do with when women wear heels it is a reminder that they have heels on. ?? It is a turn key car. Great I'd be on the road a lot sooner verses roughly mid summer for the '57 Scotsman sans a paint job. So, I guess by posting here I am looking for help. I mean it is a about 3 grand above what we can spare, period. Which leaves virtually nothing for the '57 for quite some time. So, being crazy I decided to post for opinions. I have pics.

    Later. Pepse.
