  • Central IN NB 1964 Daytona Convert on trailer 4/29/2011

    OK, who had the sharp 1964 Daytona convertible on the open car trailer northbound out of Indianapolis on U.S. 31 about 4:50 PM Friday afternoon, April 29? 'Didn't even catch the tow vehicle (a large pickup truck) I was so focused on the car.

    Kind of a maroon color (non-stock; might have passed for Bordeaux Red) with white top. Beautiful condition; obviously a show car. Headed for South Bend a week early? BP

      Bob , was it kind of a redish brown color?
      Also did you notice the Cruiser overlay on the trunk lid ?

        Bob, what did you do? I hope you just know the owner, otherwise there are support groups who meet on Tuesdays to help people who are spending their family's inheritance on Studebakers all the time, you know.

          No , no Dave !
          I've got my problem under control now <g>
          ......................It just that there was a '64 sold up here at auction lately that fits Bob's discription.


          But thanks for all your concern though !

            Oh, thank goodness. You look like you have sense, but one never knows. Now... back to the quest at hand: Who bought a new '64 Stude Convertible and had the nerve to flaunt it under the nose of BP right in his own back yard?

              I'm disappointed in you BP, you should have jumped in your car and chased it down with a camera in hand!

                I can understand the frustration, Milaca. When I was on my way to meet Bob Petersen in St. Paul I was passed by three Studes in a convoy. I was driving a brand X with a trailer and they must have thought I was crazy the way I had all toes and thumbs pointing skyward. Frustrating. Like seeing a UFO. "Take me with you!"

                  Yes and yes.

                  So what's the story?

                  I had just entered U.S.31 southbound and caught the car long enough to have a good look at it, even though it was going the other way.

                  I had no camera with me and turning around to chase it down was out of the question...as aanyone who travels U.S.31 north out of Indianapolis on Friday afternoon during rush hour well knows! <GGG> BP

                      Bob , heres a pic of the car I think you saw.


                      It went across an auction in Toronto the 1st weekend of April . Its probably on its way to its next owner. It looks alot better then it really is ...there are frame issues along with color and other conditions, it is a driver at best. It was forsale up here for over a year with no buyers. The previous owner is sitting behind the wheel in this picture...Mark Ward a Hamilton Chapter member.

                        Assuming it has a white top and Cruiser overlay on the deck lid, that is the car. The color was not a 1964 color and it would be a terrible stretch to say it was a bad mix for Bordeaux Red, if someone was trying to "hit" Bordeaux Red.

                        If it sold recently in Ontario and was going to the new owner, they were going the wrong way, because the truck, trailer, and car were headed due north!

                        From what you say, maybe they were taking it back? <GGG> BP

                          Maybe that whole is it coming or going thing rubbed off all the way to the bitter end? I see Canadian Geese flying the wrong way all the time.

                            Bob , I'm pretty sure that this car was originally Bermuda Brown in color.
                            Maybe the trucker was lost and took the wrong exit......maybe we'll get the answer to where this car has ended up someday.

                              Still looks a tad better than the one I brought home last year.
