  • Auction Studebakers

    Snapped a few pics of the 2 Studebakers I bought last week at a auction.

    That clown made it difficult for anyone to stop at his yard to look at and buy parts . Call days ahead of time - make an appointment - escort through the yard - letter from the governor . .
    It`s no wonder all the cars were still complete after all these years , and now rusty and ruined . .

      We all tell people to "Save 'em," but it seems to rarely happen. You went out and did it. And I don't think anyone thanked you. So let me say "Thank you!"

      Now, lets put some gas in and fire 'em up! Well, maybe not the '62, but that other one looks ready to run.

        A can of expanding foam insulation will fill those rust holes up.

        I might be interested in a tachometer assembly. I'll have to see what other parts I may need.

              Good on you, Bob. No matter how bad, there are always bits and pieces to be saved from any old car, even if the ultimate fate is recycling the balance. BP

                Dunno why this link to this picture comes out so small...

                The license plate style on this car were used from '68-'70. The other one has the style used from '71-'73. These cars weren't real old when they ended up in that yard. Probably not moved in 40 yrs until now!

                  Most of the cars went straight to the scrapper from what other buyers told me.There were others like myself who bought to save the saveable bits.
                  Both are destined to provide others with the parts they need for their drivers or resto's.
                  Thanks for the thanks.

                    What probably doomed that car, Jeff, was being operated without a battery hold-down! <GGG> BP
