    Hi
    Same fellowing offering the '57 President Classic I listed has:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1957-...m220238806979&

      No blower stuff, and a back draft Stromberg. Engine sway maybe?

      Someone should make a '57 Packard two door sedan. [)]

            Should be 'swap' Dave. [:I]

            Biggs, between that emblem and the roof rack, it's well worth the price!

                  I notice it does have a battery hold-down, too. (Although no battery.)

                    I threw out a low-ball offer; seller wrote me back this AM and said no thanks, he's already turned down $650, and he'd take $700... gotta be worth that if one is not too far from it.

                      It is about a 3 hour trip from me. With diesel at $4.75 a gallon and my rollback getting 8MPG, it will be a costly trip. I elected not to bid on a 2R6 pickup in the same area last week (sold on e-Bay for the opening bid of $99.00) because of the cost of getting it. We may see more cars crushed as fuel becomes more expensive and the cost of hauling becomes prohibitive.

                        Guido...
                        Figuring 3 hours @ 60 mph = 180 miles one-way X 2 for round trip = 360 miles.
                        Divide that by eight = 45 gallons @ $5.00 per gallon, that comes to $225.
                        It may not be worth it to you, but some of us will think that you can't buy many parts or fix much rust for $225.00. Of course, it depends upon the quality and price of the car being sold.

                        Hopefully, gas prices won't prevent a lot of guys from potentially saving money in the long run.
                        As I've said before...once a Stude is gone in pieces to China, it's never coming back.
                        The day decent projects are no longer available, this hobby (and club) will be in deep do-do.

                          Lets see Decimal Dude, at 8 MPH, 3 hours you would only go 24 miles. That won't cost you much gas money! [}]

                            That was with the horse drawn model. Post fixed.

                              It is not only the cost, but what to do with it once it gets back here. I am trying to pare down my collection and this will just mean more parts that I will have to dispose of. However, I do agree there is some good stuff to be had.
