  • Great BIN price on a driver-quality 55 Prez in IN

    I can see what appears to be major bondo, but for the price, so what? Just occasionally grind the bubbles off, refill, and spot in, and just drive it. Then, when your ship comes in, it's well worth restoring right. Meantime, you've got a nice driver at a bargain price!

    I had a look at this one, but add $5K for shipping...... That would be a pass from me..

      Holy crap, $5K. Ouch!

      Makes a difference, though... like when I see a $2K West Coast Stude I'd like but can't make sense of adding the $12-1400 shipping.

      BTW, good to hear from you, my friend!

          From the view on my laptop (while sitting in my recliner)...this looks like a wonderful project for a young guy with an understanding wife, good paying job, a real passion for cars, lots of energy, mechanical ability, a "can do" spirit, and just enough ignorance to "not know any better than try it!"

          OH to be thirty something again.....

            I just placed a bid and was outbid before I could confirm the bid. Did it again and was outbid again. When I do nothing the price stays stable, As soon as I bid the price rises. Sounds fishy

              Kees: I've known the seller, Mike Lawson of Lafayette IN, many years. He's an honest guy, so if your bids are being trumped right away, it likely means someone else has bid a maximum that is not being advanced unless someone bids against them.

              I doubt there's any funny business going on; Mike's a nice guy and, quite frankly, I don't think he'd know how to do any of that if he wanted to! <GGG> BP
              We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                  Still 6V? and an electric Fuel pump added? A lot of work, but could be a driver. Thanks for the post.

                    Exactly what's happening. That's how it works; it's called 'proxy bidding'.

                      Unless you bid enough to make "reserve", if someone else has outbid YOU (and they didn't make reserve either), that someone's standing bid is gonna keep eclipsing your bids until you outbid them. In other words: the two of you are bidding against one another, but neither of you have met reserve with your bids. Got that?
                      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                        I could see there's a lot of bondo. Even still, it's a good price if, as the seller says, "The hog troughs under the floor that support the body on hardtops are in excellent shape with no rust. They still have the original paint." The outer panels aren't the end of the world to replace.

                        Of course, I'd like to see under there before I hit the BIN. But it sure is a pretty combination!

                          What is the difference between this car and the President Speedster? I'm guessing the Speedster has the bigger V-8...but what else???
