  • 58 President selling for $$$

    Isn't it amazing how a lowly 4 dr. Sedan that couldn't get a bid last week at a starting bid of $6500.00, is now (with a $4251.00 Reserve) bid up to $6000.00 !![:0] He did actually LOWER the reserve, it must have been in the $5000.00 area.

    This is a very nice car with all new interior (except windlace and headliner) and as we discussed before a rare and now-days somewhat desirable, top of the line luxury classic Studebaker President, certainly NOT appreciated in it's day! [^][^]
    If I lived within a State or two of Michigan, I'd be all over it! [^]

    It is an example of what JDP was saying, about the way you set your price (reserve) having everything to do with how people bid! [:0]

    I can attest to the "sage" advice of JDP as well...
    just think my "Charlene" a 1953 "plain jane" tudoor
    sedan sold for $6500.00 last Saturday and was higher
    than the 1st auction, that had a reserve, and didn't
    close with a sale.

        This is what I recently said about my old Champ truck. If the guy would've had sane aspirations (instead of havingt only a $16K BIN) and started the biddling low, the truck would already have a new owner.[^]

        Miscreant adrift in
        the BerStuda Triangle


        1957 Transtar 1/2ton
        1960 Larkvertible V8
        1958 Provincial wagon
        1953 Commander coupe

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

            'Course, now, if it was a 1958 Packard:

            Yeow! [:0] The Packard is probably a nicer car, but two and a half times as nice? [}] BP
            We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.
