  • Someone Better Buy This NOW!

    There is a nice bulletnose convertible on eBay with a "Buy It Now" price of $5,750. I'd do it, but I just bought a Wagonaire.

    Not sure what the deal is with this car. It has been bouncing around for sale for at least a year and a half year. I first saw the ad at the '08 York swap meet.

      If I understand the ad correctly, this is a chopped coupe. It has no working side windows and no top. You would have very limited fair weather use of this car.

        Looking at the ad and reading a question posted by a Ebay user it appears that the car was customized for the "Studebaker disco/bar chain" and was originally a coupe and it has no frame bracing to compensate for the lack of a roof.

            John, where I live, that car's good for eight months without a top!

              Yikes, Chris, you had me going for a minute there! I thought it was a real convertible, and on the right coast to boot! Can't get into a "roadster" in the Northeast though[|)]

                  Hey...I have been out in your part of the country. On windy days it can rain more than just water! My poor wife has so many allergies that she is horrified at the thought of a convertible.

                      HEY!,
                      What the heck are those S.S. part sitting on the rear of the car?
                      I have two of those and have been trying for a year to figure out what they are.

                          Just a pair of outboard stainless seat frame trims, common to most '47-'52 Studes.

                          The odd thing about this ad is that it reads just like one of those phony ads where some foreign creep hijacked a legit ebay seller's account and tried to sell his car! Just the worst bunch of typos and poor grammar I have seen in a while, probably not the case this time, but it sure "looks like" the old scams again.

                          Quote: "THE REASON FOR THIS WAS THIS CAR CAME OUT TO BE SOLD BY STUDEBAKER DEALERS ACROSS THE USA AUGUST 2 1949."

                          Sounds awfully early for a 1950 to be sold, almost always all U.S. makes came out (were released for sale) in mid Sept. the year prior to the year model. [:0]

                            Mr Biggs, I'm with you on the "weather" attitude. I don't know if I could live in a place where it rains in the Summertime. UGH. It stops raining here in March and usually does not rain again till October. We'll get a couple stray showers at times, but they are rare. Thats one of the reasons I live in California. Much of the rest of it sucks, but the weather is unbelievable. I could leave that car parked outside for most of its life and not worry about anything but my cat. But then again, a simple tonneau cover would take care of that. I'm an admitted weather brat. I grew up in Southern California. We would go to Newport Beach and go body surfing during Christmas vacation. Then I joined the Marines and spent two years in Hawaii. ( rough duty, I know ) Then moved to Sacramento. Nice weather all my life, so, what can I say. I've never lived where it snows, or even threatens to. Call me spoiled.

                              ...where I live its good for about 8 minutes, before snow, rain, or other such oobleck falls.
