    It probably is John's car, but after a incorrect resto like that who's going to pay $21,500 for an ORANGE! They could not sell it the last time or 2 with that high starting bid, they will never know what it could bring!

        The oil seep was Studebakers own "rust proofing", it was developed
        after years of extensive testing. Many people think that its poor
        design work - but those of us who have used a scraper to remove the
        sometimes 1/2 thick layer of tar-like oil coating under the front of
        a Studebaker, to find rust free shiny metal - know its pure genius.

          I have to agree with that assessment. Soon after cleaning the underside of my truck of greasy goop so that I could put POR-15 on the metal, I noticed that the now-cleaned bolt heads are starting to rust, and RAPIDLY! I guess I should just hit them all with a grease gun.
