    You seem to be interested, but how committed are you? There is work involved, how much can you afford? This is a good worth while project, but only you can say for sure whether you are up to the challenge. If you are not up to it, leave it for the next guy. There is nothing more rewarding then bringing a car back. The flipside is having to move a millstone from around your neck, when you become overwhelmed by the process.
    Inside is surprisingly pretty good. Ignition needs replaced. Seats are intact with decent springs. Headliner is gone. Floor is solid, doors look decent even the pleated leatherette/leather (not sure what they used).

        Many of our Studebakers are either projects when we get them or become projects along the way. Go for it! Should you lose interest, you can always let it go. Good luck!

          Daniel,

          The additional information makes this for me a game changer. The car seems to have been a pretty well kept survivor before the fire. I know that there is an element of risk, certainly, but in my humble opinion it's a risk worth taking. Good luck.

            Definitely nice out here. We actually live right by Wister lake, as in I can walk down my backyard in to the wildlife management lands and go fishing.

            Good luck with your move

              Yep, I grew up riding a bicycle across the Sardis Lake Dam near Clayton while it was nothing but a pile of dirt. Next, I'll be sailing the lake.

                Well for better of for worse I went ahead and bought it from the guy. Guess I have a project to start working on eventually now.

                        Heck, that's a good deal. Hard to find not rusted out crap for $1500 anymore.
