  • e-bay '56 President Classic

    The '56 President Classic on e-bay right now--Looks to Me a lot of labor and $$ went into it.
    What an odd way to try and sell it--apart like that. Dig the serial number!
    GO PATRIOTS!!

    It looks from the rear package shelf that this car may have had air conditioning at one point. However, now the components are not in place.

          That Serial Number was asked about by someone in another recent thread/topic. It is about mid-way through the 1956 President series built in Vernon (LA) CA.

            Where the heck is "Twin Falls, United States". This is a terrible listing by a "Dealer".

              Looks like quite a bit of work was done.

              We used to have a show-condition blue President exactly like this one in Ontario, Canada - I don't know where it went.

              Were some of the doors not painted with the body? I wonder if this person asked us how to install the stainless window trim AFTER the front and read windows were installed?

                If those doors are repainted, they sure will be screwed up after sitting loose with other "stuff". Heh $3500 SHOULD BE tops. Imagine the logistics of moving all that stuff! The guy's dreamin'!
                No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                  There are alot of 'Twin Falls" around the country. Maybe this is in Idaho ?? Way too close-- and tempting!

                    I always maintained the easiest thing to do was to dismantle,putting it back together is the hard part.I have seen this happen many times in my 30+ yrs of

                    Studebakering,they realize they have more invested than it's worth & not finished yet or just lose interest & give up.

                      I heard a rumor that the "208" area code covers the entire State of Idaho.
                      But another rumor I have heard puts the car in Moses Lake, WA.

                        This looks like a disaster. No telling what condition the parts are in. Not to mention, they are not packed or protected very well.

                          On ebay if you search listing nearest first it will give location or distance from you its Idaho according to this method for me. It could be a addition to the puzzels that have been present latley . Putting it back to gether much harder when you didn't take it apart not knowing which pcs you will need sure there will be many.

                            It is evident when you click on his "other items" that this is a dealer. It is also evident that he is not a restorer. I suspect that this is also a consignment dealer as well. No respectable restorer would treat the parts this way. If it was his money tied up in the car, he would take better care of the parts. What a shame.
