  • Bargain '32 Eight Convertible

    'Finally doing some long-overdue catching up, reading a few periodicals.

    'Ran across what seems to be a good price for a '32 Stude Eight convertible if anyone on the east coast would like to check it out:



    You might tell Mr. Kaylor you're responding to his advertisement in the January 1952 Motor Trend; he may have forgotten he placed the ad. <GGG>

    ('Going to have to let some of these subscriptions expire; 'just can't seem to get around to reading everything in a timely manner once it arrives. Anyone else have that problem?) BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Hey! I only live 20 miles from there. Want me to check it out?
    Some years ago when JDP was editor of the Potomac Chapter Commander we published a 20-year old ad from Standard Surplus just for fun. Well, Dennis didn't think it was funny when he started getting calls to order the C-K rear quarters for $12.50.

      By golly - for that price, the paint better be REALLY nice.

      EDIT: GAH! I just read the last add for the 33 Packard. DAMN! You couldn't buy a good used WHEEL for $850 today! An I got to drive one of those some 600 miles once - when it could've been had for a measly $17K! <sigh>

      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        I remember doing body repairs to a '56 Golden Hawk in 1975. Newman-Altman sold Me NOS L & R side grilles w/pans for $11.00 each. Also rear 1/4 panels at $28.00 each. I priced a '55 center grille for another
        Studebaker, They wanted an outrageous $50.00 for that NOS piece!

          Hey, guys!
          My Rockne's available for less than 20K.
          Jump on it now or, believe me, you'll be kicking yourself in sixty years.

            1975 - I set down with a N&A catalog and estimated that shy of a frame and body tub, I could have assembled a brand new 60 Lark convertible for somewhere in the neighborhood of $3K. I bought a complete new '52 grille assy (piece by piece) for about a hundred bucks. Of courser, I also bought a small Georgia dealership parts inventory for $400 bucks!

              To be completely fair, that asking price would be a whopping $2639.59 by now.

              You know, "in amazing fettle throughout" is a phrase you just don't find on eBay Motors that much.

                Well, Mike, that certainly puts this in a whole new light...I mean, that's over $2,500! <GGG> BP
