    Truly bizarre equipment, Gary. Wonder if it had been ordered like that?

    Miscreant Studebaker nut in California's central valley.

    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe
    1957 President two door

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

        I assume that it was an ordered car. It was built that way (not later modifications). I couldn't imagine Studebaker building it that way for stock or show. The car was originally black. The guy that I sold it to, after nine years, changed it to white. I think that the original owner didn't want anything to rob any of that 275 HP and didn't want extra weight on the front end.

        This reminds me of selling new Chryslers. We got one 300M with the special heavy duty suspension/handling package. I thought that it was a real bear to drive in town. We sold it to a body builder that didn't mind it at all. I had a small guy in his 70s come in and wanted that package. I did all that I could to talk him out of it. He said that he was going to turn me in to Chrysler for not taking his order for what he wanted. He stormed out (probably went to another dealer that would take his money no matter what). The guy was probably used to ordering heavy duty components in the '50s-'60s (I did then also.). This package was nothing like that. I drove a couple of others, but we never got another one for stock. I guess that I didn't believe that the customer always knew best. I had many other customers thank me, send me cards, send letters to the owner, etc. and I had a 100 CSI on sold units (so I guess that I was doing something right). Sorry for going off on a tangent, again <G>.

          I looked at the car today. Guys it is rough. He wants $7500 and was insulted when someone offered around $4000. Top is crushed, interior totaly shot, rust, not sure if it is original engine, no blower set up. Probably $25-30K would make a driver. Needs a body and heart transplant. I have pictures I can send off line
