        2 bids and it even has a reserve on it! I notice there is no mention of the floor pans or trunk, but given the cancer in the rockers and rear quarters, I am sure they are gone. Given his uncertainity of the year, maybe he thinks he has one of those super scarce '59 models!

        All kidding aside, I had a fellow who had bought a couple of trucks from me ask if I had a rusty truck to sell. It turns out that this rusty hulk was transported to Norfolk, Va and placed in a container and sent to Sweeden as yard art. At a sale price of $150 I made money and the fellow on the other end is happy!

          Such a cool car... luckily, according to my GPS it's 400 miles from me, or I'd be buying it and dragging it home [B)]

          I've been watching for the 58 that was in the barn with my wagon; seller said the buyer was planning on "flipping" it- I assume on ebay...

          Now, THAT one's savable....

            If it was 400 feet from me, I would not drag it home.

              If it were a Hemi-Cuda in that condition the bidding would be at over $35000! [xx(]

                I'd go 100 miles for it for $200... or maybe 200 miles if it was $100...

                I'd love to have that rear clip; I'd send it to a guy who makes love seats out of car back-ends [8D]

                Still lots of good parts on that to save others... maybe you're gettin' a little spoiled, JDP?

                  Spoiled maybe, but I know a rust bucket when I see it. You need to pull a front clip with a 3/8 drive ratchet in 2 hours on a rust free car to become spoiled. Make no mistake, I'm glad there are others that would buy a car like that Packardbaker, also glad it's not me.
                  I just fixed a exhaust leak on my NM coupe and out of habit ran the torch hoses under the car to heat the manifold nuts. Silly me, they came right off with out even a squeak.

                    I don't feel so bad now. I want such a "love seat" in the Quonset, but have always been afraid to say so before now. [B)] If there were to be a similar Stude close to me, I might have one.

                      Awesome. Some people swear at 'em, & I swear by 'em! I wouldn't mind having it around, because when you've got one o' them super-rare Packebakers, you never know what youre gonna need, eventually. It is missing much of the hard-to-find stuff. Too far away for me, though.

                        I have the space to keep something like this; so I'd keep it around till I needed parts for a clean one... I do that now with Lincolns; have one mint, a couple drivers, several parts cars! I picked up the cars one by one- usually saved from demo derbies or the crusher [}]

                        I want to do the same with Studes; anyone got one in the NE that need to be moved? If possible, I'd get ALL those in the "doomed" thread, and keep them safe here [^] I love Lincolns and Studes... what an odd combination... I have NO IDEA where that combination came from, but here we are........ [:I]

                        Dave, have you ever seen a car end made into furniture? I've seen many, and have a friend that owns several! I talked to a guy at the Zephyrhills swap meet that makes them... eventually I want one for my TV room...

                        Boy, I just realized: When I die, my survivors are going to have a big mess to clean up...[]

                          Though I am not quite 50, I have been thinking ahead to when my wife will be left with all my "treasures". Given that she is 10 years younger and recently had an great aunt die at 108, I suspect I will be the first to go. While I probably have $150K tied up in all my stuff, she views it all as junk and would dump it just to get it out of the way. I have provided her with a list of people that can help her dispose of my Studes, tractors, farm equipment, etc. that will hopefully allow her to get some return on my investment.

                            JDP, it would need to be more solid to qualify as a rust bucket! This one wouldn't hold water.

                              Sadly, it looks like this one was able to hold water for quite a while...

                              Of course, I learned with my wagon that pics can be deceiving; I was advised to avoid it based on the fact that the pics were horrendous- and that it was in NY... turned out to be extremely rust-free (actually from Colorado)...

                              Obviously this one shows lots of rust; but if it was closer, I'd go look at it before I wrote it off...
