    I have one...down from 6 at one time. Got tired of paying rent on a leaky storage unit and could not find another big enough to accommodate the collection so sold 5 and I keep the last one here at home in my one car garage.

        I have three (four if you want to count the '57 Packard wagon- MAJOR project). I have a '64 Daytona Wagonaire- since new, drove away from Hamilton; a '53 Commander Starliner, since 1966 and a '64 Daytona convertible, since 2006. My high was nine at one time though I have run six or so a number of times. At nine I think I had the Wagonaire and Starliner plus a '56 Skyhawk, a '63 R-2 4-speed Avanti, a '63 Daytona Skytop, a '61 Lark convertible, a '62 Lark convertible, a '64 RHD GT, and a '60 one-ton 4WD. I also had a '76 Avanti at the same time. At one time I had three Avantis- two black '63s and the '76.

            It has a Studebaker frame.

                I was reading about different guys on this forum that have more than one Studebaker. So I was wondering how many Studebakers do you have? Running or not. Randy_G
                Well, my wife says I have......TOO MANY! <G>

                Seriously, I think the following list is correct, give or take one:
                '64 GT Hawk R1/Full Package (licensed but not driven in a while)
                '64 Commander 4-door (licensed, driven once and a while)
                '64 Daytona hardtop 259/4spd
                '63 Daytona Skytop/R1 (licensed, not driven in a while)
                '63 Champ 1/2 ton (finishing up frame off resto)
                '62 GT Hawk
                '62 Daytona hardtop 289/4spd (in middle of frame off resto)
                '62 Lark Regal convertible
                '61 Hawk 4sp (was destined to be a '54, but not sure now.....)
                '55 E7 1/2 ton pickup
                '54 Champion 4-door (my daily driver)

                        Don't get me (or JDP among others) started on a list of ones we have owned and disposed of. I made a post about a month ago on a nice appointed '63 Daytona that I could only get $60.00 for in 1976. I did okay as I only paid $29.00 for it the year before!

                            Paring down from nine I currently have six. I would like to get the number down to three before the move. Move... Oi. My gimmy just blew the transmission. I'm currently wondering what I'm going to do. Sorry, too much personal info.

                            2 '63 Daytona project wagons. One has the third seat and tailgate step.
                            1 '62 Y-body sedan. Trying to get it to Michigan and it's new home.
                            2 '62 Champs -- long bed and short bed. The short bed needs a home.
                            1 '52 Commander 4dr. Frumpy also needs a home.

                                '40 Champion business coupe.

                                3 '47 M16s
                                '52 2R5 (parts only)
                                '52-3 2R15
                                '53 2R17A
                                '53 Champion 4 door, early tristar car
                                '53 Champion coupe, parts only
                                Several Hawk parts cars, plus a "builder" '58 Silver Hawk
                                2 '63 Wagonaires
                                '64 GT hawk

                                I make it 19, counting some that will never run, but most of them do, although not all are roadworthy.
