  • Excellent 64 Cruiser at York

    This car was simply gorgeous! I would say it was a high 2 condition, not far from a #1:





    Talked at length to the owner, Jim Ferner. He bought the car from a dry climate, already really decent, needing cosmetics. He had it painted in the original color, basecoat/clearcoat, an excellent job. When he replaced the interior, he called SASCO. Dennis said I'll have to look. He called him back and said yes, I do have NOS upholstery; but you have to understand this has been laying around all these years and they'll be be a little dirty and probably need to be cleaned. When they arrived they were beautiful! So he had the interior installed by White Post, and the result is stunning!

    Here's a couple pics:





    Here's the window sign:



    I don't have any idea about detail correctness, but condition-wise I think it's not far from a show winner. I thought his price was pretty high for a four door, but really I'm not so sure, given the condition and quality of the work. And, who knows what kind of deal one could make- it did say "or best offer"..........

    One more note: Got a chuckle out of his license plate frame:

    Crap, at first glance that looked like MY old Cruiser. Kinda made my heart jump. I'm gonna bet that crack in the dash pad is right by the speaker

    My next Studebaker is in the future, but now getting my hair messed up in a Sebring ragtop!
    Almost as fun as a Studebaker!

        Pretty car. I don't think that price is outta reason either, not if you consider what it would take to make a lesser example look like that![:0]

        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            I dunno, that's a 4-door. I'll bet you'd be lucky to get north of $6500 even in that condition.

                I'll agree with Mark on this one...he has some recent experience, and had his on ebay which all agree is "the" marketplace for used cars. I say this while in the process of fixing up a 63' Cruiser. I'll have north of $7K into this car before I'm finished (and I'm just about there)and have little expectation of it nearing that price
                if I were to sell it. Now if the owner of that car has had it for 5 years and put 20K miles on it in that condition....now he's got a pretty good deal @ ~$6K........BTW-I looked at this car @ York and it was very finely presented.....

                    I like the rare late '64 "DISHED" headlight doors! very nice, and so is the whole car! [^][]

                    You could not buy a new 2008 that would serve you as well, and cost as little in the long run for repairs, insurance, license, maintenance etc. as this Cruiser. [:0]

                    Not to mention $10-20,000.00 right off the bat![:0]

                    I don't think the savings on fuel would equal the cost of the rest of the expenses on a new one. [V]

                    Unfortunately though, you can not live in a "car eating" State like Bams50 does!

                        I agree that it is unlikely to fetch $10K, but it should!

                            I didn't look it over with an eye to shows, but I only saw a few things it needed- dash pad (cracked by speaker as usual); radio fixed; and Jim said door panels dyed, but couldn't see anything wrong with them myself. Also, the paint is absolutely stunning, but I've never seen that much metallic in Stude paint; probably from being clearcoated. Not sure if that would cost points at a show. I wonder what this car would score at an International Meet with a new dash pad...
