  • 2R truck values

    OK, I'll admit it I don't get the bidding on ebay. Look at this 2R truck on ebay. It's a decent enough truck, but it's been bid to over twice what I'd pay and I "should" know values. Just last year, I sold a show version of the same truck for 10K and thought that was very good money.

    Don't ask me to 'splain it![)] That's goofy money for THAT 2R.[}]

    Geesh! "Reserve not met"!!!

    the BerStuda Triangle

    1960 Larkvertible V8

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

        That's in my FILs neck of the woods. I'll ask him if he's seen it.

                Hey look at this and tell me something's not fishy. Go to this page:

                Yeah, I think you're right. Go to this page:

                http://offer.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/...m=150066172261

                Look at the bidding history. In particular bidder #2. 26% of his activity has been with this seller.

                Am I looking at this wrong?

                    Mark, Yeah, I think you were reading it wrong. Bidder 2 has made 6 bids on this one item. He has placed a total of 23 bids in the last 30 days. So, 26% of his bids are with this seller. More to the point, that 26% is all for his bids on this truck.

                    It could be that people like the provenance of a truck with 26k mi., whose history appears to be intact and traceable. And it appears unmolested under the hood (unlike mine, now that I've gotten a hold of it [}]). I imagine that there are some collector-minded folks out there who are attracted to this truck for those reasons. They probably also are big fans of the items and stories shown on the TV show, "Antiques Road Show".

                        Here's another idea from Bob Palma: (I checked, there is a Grapatte collector group.)
                        ------------------------------------------------------------------------

                        'Could be a Grapette groupy, John. (Seriously).

                        Like anything else out of the fifties, I'll bet there's a Grapette
                        culture of some sort, but I'm too busy to Google it right now. It was
                        certainly a popular "independent" drink (i.e, not a Coca-Cola or
                        Pepsi-Cola corporate product...that I know of.)

                        If this truck has any documentation as to its Grapette past, the seller
                        may have a "Grapetter" on the hook.

                        That's as good a theory as any, right? BP

                            I haven't owned any Studebaker truck quite this old. Does the serial number really start with "1R", as listed (even though the S/N plate shows it to be a 2R model)? If it was truly an R or 1R model, it would be worth something (I think that only one was built).
