  • low milage

    how come a lot of usa studes have such low miles on them what happen from new etc its seems weid to us kiwis that a lot of cars in usa have such low miles or is it we are just car nuts that like to drive everywhere even if its only in new zealand which is about 3000 miles long but we do drive all over the place on this little iland called nz

    Well, my '59 pickup only has 53,500 or so on it. A guy I know in Florida has a '63 Wagonaire with 5,300 miles on it, but that same guy also has a '51 Champion with over half a million miles on the odometer. It all depends on where you look I guess!

                    A few years ago Turning Wheels had a special "100,000 Mile Club" feature, but discontinued it after so many western members said "what's the big deal? ALL my (several) Studebakers have over 100,000 miles". Seems that while the salt belt cars are disolving into the ground, the "dry state" cars just keep going and going.

                        Hi Pete the Kiwi,
                        for some unkown reason just about every Studebaker owner in the US reads the milage on the speedo and say it is a 23k mile original car.
                        Mostly the pictures tell the story and you know a car has gone round the clock a number of times, if you know what you are looking for.
                        Really good cars are just so hard to find. Recently there were 3 lovely larks on ebay that really looked like low milage cars. There was a 63 Hawk recently on that boasted and astoundingly low number of miles, that looked nice but that was all. Most people say anything to sell a car so you just have to sort through all the chaff and work out what is right for you.

                        Most of us die hard collectors of the make try and find the low mileage ones and keep them for our own use, but the average Joe Bloggs that owns a Stude will tell you or write anything to sell a car.

                        Oddly enough, all my cars are low mileage, even my Australian cars. I did not belive that the mileage on my 1937 was correct at about 67k miles, but I met a previous owner who had courted his wife in the car and who'd owned it twice since 1970 and he confirmed that the mileage was at around 50k in the early 1970's before it needed full restoration. Australian cars, like American cars cop a pounding as it is a real big country.

                        European Studes are all generally low milage as there is not to far to go over here, and in England there are people that have never looked over the next hill.....
