        Wow! [:0]I have a 48 chry***r that has the same door panels! I thought it was one of a kind. They are almost original (age) and are falling apart like the rest of it. Actually they were falling apart when I was driving it thirty years ago.[8D]

            I'm not trying to bust up on the owner of this car, but I passed on it a couple of years ago due to the rust on it. The rust is in the cowl around the front windshield and fenders and elsewhere. Its quite prevalent. It does not appear to have been a valley car. If it was indeed a CA car, it was more than likely a coast car which had been in plain view of the salt air from the onshore breezes.

                        If it doesn't go too far beyond the starting bid, then it would be worth getting as a driver or parts runner. Restoration on a car with this much rust would be worth doing if you could change the frame to that of a Hawk, then change the body to that of a 53 Hard Top, then change the suspension to that of GT, then change the interior to the pieces from Dick Steinkamp's 53, then change the engine and trans to one from an R2 Avanti, then change the wiring, the wheels, brakes, shocks, steering, tires, radiator, fuel tank and maybe a few other items and then you have something. Other than that, it looks OK.

                            I would have been in complete agreement with the previous comments, IF it hadn't been for another recent thread regarding EBay Madness that has influenced Me profoundly. IOW,as I now see it: People who already own Studebakers, and parts stashes(that they might hope to sell, someday) should be very supportive of this seller! EBay isn't a REAL Auction, anyway. So, why blame the seller for having a super-high Reserve, trying to cover his expenses and having a little compensation for his efforts?

                                Actually, he won't cover ANY expenses if the car doesn't sell. And with an unrealistically high reserve, the chances of selling are slim. All he is doing (IMHO) is creating MORE expenses (ebay listing fees).
