  • When did Studebaker STP cans jump in value?

    Just saw an average Studebaker STP can offered on e-bay with a BIN of $49.95. [:0] Just curious as to how he arrived at that price as I bought a couple last week for a whopping $10.50 for both.

    I think the equation goes something like:

    (uninformed) + (greedy) = overpriced

            I told him it was a $15.00 item and he did not seem to believe me.

                I could see bidding go that high if it were for a nice looking can of STP Top Oil with Studebaker on it. But not for the generic cans.

                BTW there are a minimum of 9 versions that I have come across.

                    Bill,

                    I will have to check on that when I get home to see how many variations I have. With over 3 racks full, I should have a fairly good representation.

                        I have a full rack of STP cans, starting with "Magic", there are two versions of that can, then (this is from memory) there are variations on the "new" size logo, then variations on made by. One Compunds Division, Chemical Division, Studebaker Packard, Then there are address changes. Ther are also different prices on the cans. Most say I think $1.35 but one I think says $1.89.

                        All of my cans are in the dinning rom as we re-modeled the office family room.

                            Billy,

                            I took a quick look at my cans and I have the following (by no means all that are available):

                            I may have missed some subtle differences too. I only have 2 Top Oil cans and both are different and I also have a glass sample jar.
