  • 63 Cruiser sold at auction

    This 63 Studebaker Cruiser 4dr, 6 cylinder with 6,4000 miles was sold on sat at an estate auction in Palmyra Pa. I looked at it on friday and it was very nice. It went for more than I was willing to pay. It sold for $6,400.

    That is an extremely nice '63 Standard; the opposite end of the trim/price level of the Standard/Lark/Cruiser line for that year. It seems to be devoid of every option aside from the Climatizer which makes it very unique![^] (The rear view mirror appears to be aftermarket.)

      Very nice car. Somewhere along the line the off-white wheels got painted black, which makes her seem even plainer I think (!)

      Still, appears to be in outstanding condition.

          I am guessing that it is from Amish country. It is the most basic model, four door sedan, six, standard, only heater, black. This could also be a reason that the "bright" off-white wheels were repainted black.

            Very nice car indeed, and I think that's the first black Standard of any body style I've ever seen! And check out that original battery hold-down correctly in place; I'm impressed.

            Jeff, I assume you meant it had 6,400 miles, not 6,4000; correct?

            Also, the pictures look like they were taken with the engine idling. Look at that oil pressure guage; almost pegged!

            Nice car. BP

                Yes I did mean 6,400 miles. I think the owner was mennite which would explain the black wheels.

                  Somehow it seems right that a Mennonite would own a Studebaker Standard!

                    Very nice, but a little more than I would pay for a 6 cyl.

                        I am going to guess the water pump was replaced at some point.

                        Reason I think so is it looks like they left out the spacer between the fan and the pump. From the angle of this photo there is too much space between the fan and the radiator.



                        I know all those '63 owners out there are lusting after that dash pad. If this car was any more basic it would have a tongue with harness sticking out in front of it...

                          That dash pad is a standard and the glove box is total different, not a good shot of it, I am not a Mennonite and I own a standard 2 door and I don't think Nels is either and he has a full package 2 door standard, one of the best cars I own, have had it since 1989....Bob

                            When I was in Ohio I met a guy who said he used to sell cars near tha Amish & Mennonite communties.
                            He said they'd come on and want a base model, black, no options.
                            The dealer would reverse the factory white walls, and replace full wheel covers with dog dish caps. I'd guess, they'd occasionally have to pull radios too.

                              I referred to the basic/standard model, but also the ALL BLACK as clues that it might have been purchased new by Amish/Mennonite. Of course, many of these cars have changed hands over the past 45 years. Did you buy your Standard new? Is it black? As Bob P. pointed out, the all black basic sedan is unusual.
