    ebay is home to some of the biggest com artists on the planet.

    And I mean the executives as well as the sellers.

    I contacted the seller and pointed out his errors, here's what I received in response...

    "F**k you! Studebakers are a s**t car anyway, and only an idiot would want one. Mopars rule, dude".

    I guess he told me.

    I guess he has not talked to Fonzie the bear lately about his Commander V8 2 Dr. Sedan, the OTHER car like this on the Planet!

    BTW, two of these rare cars were used in filming, one modified to be driven from the trunk!
    I think that's the one they drove around with a truck on the roof...

    The seller has added even MORE BS to his auction page. The price is higher this time than the last, too. Hope no one in the Club gets ripped off by this guy.

    Very rare in Australia.In fact I've never seen a 51 Commander 2 door sedan out here.Did see a Champion in the 70's.
    Wonder how many rescuable ones exist in the U.S??

    17 hours to go and it's up to $1500. I think the buyer's going to be rather disappointed.

    Well, to put their selling skills into perspective, when we were there to look at it, the guy just showed us where it was, and let us take a look. Didn't come up to us after that, didn't say hi, bye, kiss my a.. or anything. We stayed there probably about 30 minutes looking at the other cars, opening doors, popping hoods, and no one said anything to us. Must not be too interested in selling it, if you ask me.

    After looking this car over today with Chris, I'd have to say that the clutch and brake pedals are it's most redeeming feature. Now, if a guy was good at bodywork, and didn't mind replacing the floors/rockers/trunk/radiator splash pan/etc it would make a decent car. I'd rather buy this one and put a V8 in it: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Stude...item27b146da03

    WOW! a picture is worth a thousand words. But that doesn't say how many are true. My remark as to worth/honesty was WAY off , , ,

    But I still think the Rube Goldberg pedals are a hoot!

    Just returned from eyeballing the '51 with another SDC member. Too bad the photographer didn't show the rusted out trunk floor - you can see the gas tank quite clearly.

    The floor has large "see through" areas on the both sides of the front seat, and the rockers are basically gone. We think it had been sitting in the mud, as every time a door closed or we rapped on a body panel, large quantities of mud fell on the pavement.

    Speaking of body panels, the hood and the passenger door have bondo a quarter-inch thick in several spots. The bumpers and overriders are good, the grille is excellent along with the bullet.

    The only good glass is the rear backlight. Both front turn signal lenses are broken. Rear lenses are good. There are only 3 wheel covers, in OK shape. Rims have been painted silver metallic recently.

    Most chromed trim is in good shape. Stainless is OK. Dashboard is missing many of the lower parts & trim. Seats are wasted, of course.

    Someone has been working on the motor, which does not turn over. There are no spark plugs, but someone stuck a tap in one of the threaded holes on the passenger side of the engine.

    We didn't lay down to check out the underneath of the vehicle. Forgot, the trunk springs are in bad shape - doesn't fit tight. Hood doesn't latch, either.

    If you need some straight body panels and spare parts, this is a good choice. If you like hard fabrication work - then it will make a decent project.

    That's all!
