  • Can a Stude Truck be worth that much?

    Collector Car Market Review's wedsite says a stock 1955 Stude Truck in #2 condition is worth about $8.000 and one in #1 condition is worth $13,000. Does anyone know of a Stude truck selling for money like that?

      Why does that seem high to you for a true #2 or #1?? Think about what those definitions mean- a #2 will win a trophy at most shows...

        A #1 vehicle is NEVER driven. Always transported in an enclosed trailer to a car show. Stored in a climate controlled building. It has ceased to become an automobile and has become a work of art. There are VERY few #1 cars in the world. I have NEVER seen a #1 Studebaker of any type. It would cost $100,000 or more to produce a #1 Stude truck worth $13,000.

          Seems like very reasonable figures to me. [^]

            Right, that's what I mean. That answers the original question quite well!

              Those are extremely reasonable figures for a #1 or #2 vehicle of any make.

                I've sold a few condition 2 C cabs for 10K plus. Ed Ellis did sell a condition One, 4 wheel drive for over 40K. 13K for even a 390 point truck would be a bargain.
