  • Local '55 on EBAY

    Well, the '55 I have been pondering on showed up on ebay this evening:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1955-...item231b560ee2

    We talked about it in this thread:

    http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...and-Stormy-Day

    And, I put up some pics here:

    The seller and I could not quite agree on a price. I am bidding on it, but don't let that stop you if you are interested. If it's meant to be, it will be.

    A nice looking car, good luck.

    Just one question, What is that front seat out of. (I know bad sentence Structure). Looks almost like a rear seat out of a Suburban or a bus. Just askin'.

      Not sure, Bob. I did notice it seemed not to fit just right, or needed some adjustment, but I did not really study it that hard. Had we been closer to a deal, I would have given it a more critical look.

        Why do sellers insist on using such crappy pictures?

            There are warts on the car that I would either repair before presenting, or show clear pictures of.

            I also know of some other "issues" that the seller openly told me about. He freely offered information about some things, so I think he's a pretty straight shooter. I don't know if he told the guy that put it up on ebay for him, or not.

            I have asked about the front seat, and one or two other issues I am aware of, just to see what kind of answer I get (if any.) Too bad the question/answers are not part of the presentation.

            EDIT:

            The questions/answers ARE included in the listing, and the Lister/owner answered my questions to the best of his ability, having only owned the car a couple of days.
