    Pretty sure the owner works for Craig Piper at Westmoreland Restorations in Blairsville. I think his name is David but not certain.

      That car was at the International in Lancaster, it won the modified class , it was very nicely done . The owner was just a kid but he sure knew how to do up a car. Seen him let it go out on the hiway and it was fast !!

        I was about to ask if it had been displayed and judged at Lancaster. I thought I remembered seeing it there, and it is a nicely-done car. Thumbs-up on the correct battery hold-down, too. <GGG> BP

          Yes! Took a First at Lancaster. Restored by the owner/employee at Craig Piper's Westmoreland Restorations. Anything coming out of Craig's shop is first rate!
          I remember there was a very fine photo taken of that car in the early Thursday morning mist at Lancaster. Can't find it now.
          Bid high and often; it's worth it.

              I believe Dave Arnold took the misty photo you speek of. Crockett's car has a few videos on YouTube as it was on a Dyno machine. Nice car too bad the young man is letting it go....he may find himself starting a thread here "has anyone seen my old car?"

                Very nice looking car from the pics. I like the wheels on that car, they have a nice vintage look but a bit of a modern styling as well. Nice mix.
                The wheels actually look a LITTLE bit like the standard Porsche alloys all polished but with a domed center cap. That got me thinking...Porsche is 5 x 4.5", Stude is 5 x 4.5"...hmmm

                    Dave is doing fine. He's just taking a break from the old car hobby.

                      This appears to be a nice car for the right person. That right person may be hard to find.

                      Some, that do not know the individual, may be put off by a fairly expensive car being sold by someone with zero (0) feedback on eBay.

                      He may be a nice guy that knows cars, but he needs a refresher in English/grammar. I can understand a quick ad for a $15 item with some errors, but not an ad for an item with greater than a $15,000 reserve having many errors.

                        The young man that owns, and built, that car was only 21 when he displayed it at Lancaster, winning a first place award as has already been mentioned. He was the one I mentioned on another thread who got a "21 and Under" T-shirt at Lancaster. The car is indeed a lovely automobile. I would love to own it.

                          He would be a prime candidate to ask, why are you leaving Studebakers. Was/is young, had a bitchin car, won some awards and yet isn't involved even with many praises and posts about himself and his car. Maybe life has taken hold and the sale will make a nice down payment on a starter home.

                            I'm I missing something? To me, this car looks like it has a '66 grill and headlights. Isn't this what a '64 should look like:

                              Yes, Mike, but the subject car on e-bay has been customized with 1966 components. It is, and I believe is titled as, a 1964 model year car. Just a customized one. BP
