    Interesting. Winning bidder place a bid 17 minutes before auction end, and just to make sure someone didn't slip in on him at the last minute, bid against his own bid in the last minute:

    Gotta love strategy!

    Congrats, Dick!

        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

          I still can't get over how nicely preserved that car is.

            The guy that bought it is a big time collector/builder of everything from classic 30's cars to high tech hot rods. This is his first Studebaker. He does Hot August Nights every year (last year in a modified Jag Mark V). His plan is to restore it back to it's 60's show days including paint back to Pink Pearl. My guess is that we'll see it at HAN and other places in the coming years. A neat car guy for sure.

              Well, Dick, that is just so cool. You got your reserve price, and had the pleasure of owning a piece of history for a few weeks. And the buyer is another car guy who should do right by the car as well. A transaction that satisfies everybody. It doesn't get better than that. And, lest anybody think I'm somehow expressing sarcasm or sour grapes, no, no, not in the least. It really is cool that eBay has become a venue where car nuts can buy and sell stuff that they could only dream about in the years gone by.

              I just came in the house after playing with MY recent eBay find, a '49 Crosley Super sedan delivery. Got it off the trailer, and started up and drove to the neighbours and back, and drove it into the shop. The car is cuter than sneakers, even if it's not a Studebaker [B)] But it would make a Lark Standard feel like a Mark IV Lincoln. [8D] It's so primitive, it even has mechanical brakes. Really. Little 44 cu. in. engine runs like a pup, though.

                Gord,
                The engine in your Crosley was the base powerplant for a few decades of Carrier reefer units in the heavy truck world.

                  Is it OK to use "Crosley" and "Super" in the same sentence[?]

                  Seriously, Gord, sounds like a find. I think you were short at least one toy anyway [}] [8D].

                  Don't desert us Studebaker guys, however, just because you've stepped up to a Crosley
