    I counted a ton of mail in my day and have been retired 5 years now. I sure DON'T miss it....
    Shows you what I don't know about the rural side of mail delivery!

    Stude made removable metal panels that fasten to the body and pillars with metal fasteners for commercial applications. My kit is complete right down to weather stripping and the fasteners(with screws!)

    I haven't seen Studebaker International's new catalog, but SASCO told me (10? years ago?) I have the last kit they know of. PM me if interested. Price is reasonable. Not looking to make much on it.
    Roger, the wagon is a 4dr. Did they make the kit for those, I thought they were for 2dr wagons,

    Oh, OK now I see the ebay ad, that should be an OK cheap project.

    Looks like another color blind seller, Lol! Unless he had a really bad camera or lighting, both the exterior and interior are clearly GREEN!

    Sorry, as studefan said, see ebay link in post #22. I haven't figured out posting pics here yet. It is a 61 4dr wagon.

    Well, this old girl arrived last night in East Earl Pa. after a little over a 10 day trip from Bob P's place in Casto Valley Ca. And shipping was under a grand!!!!! It is just what the Doctor ordered, and we have some new blood in the Stude World! Luke is is his name, and he is one heck of a body & paint man!!!!! Can't wait to see him work his majic on this one. Yes, it will be modified, (sorry you originality boys), but it is better than cutting it up or letting it rot into the ground.
    Anyone interested in the 259 3spd od drivetrain? Can be delivered to Reedsville.
    THANK YOU BOB PETERSON FOR YOR HELP!!!!!!!

    Thanks Bob.

    True, but I meant that since I wasn't in the market for one it wasn't worth spending the shipping. If it was within driving distance, I definitely would have bid just to save it.

    I have had good luck buying rust-free cars in the Northeast. There are cars that were not driven in winter, but also a lot of transplants that somebody already shipped and gave up on. My CO Daytona body was in MI, CO 57 Provincial was an hour away from me, and I have another 62 Daytona in the garage that spent it's life in MA and PA but no winters- all rock solid but nearby.

    Of course, if one is on a schedule, the WC is a good option as well.

    So very true yet quite a few folks still don't quite grasp the concept of buying an essentially rustfree vehicle for $1,000 more (factoring in the shipping costs admittedly) which is still cheaper in the long run than starting with a severely rusted out local one. Note: I underlined the word 'severely'
