    No, just the most likely resolution. I'm trying to see that at least usable parts can be saved from even the worst ones. To this point, the '64 Commander 4-speed has been sold to a solid buyer, the '63 GT Hawk is supposed to be sold to a zero feedback bidder who asked for more time to make the deposit and pay (??), the '61 Cruiser is gone, the '57 Packard sedan is gone and either the '65 Commander or the blue '59-60 2-door Lark is gone (both promised).

    What news of Torrey?
    We pray for his comfort, and that of his family.
    He is still in the nursing home and is currently getting hospice care. I spoke with him yesterday and he still has his wits about him but tires very quickly. He did tell me that the 57 Packard sedan had been sold. He will need all the prayers we can muster.

    Sam welcome to the club. The '57 Broadmoor still has me in the dog house. I moved it out of sight for a while and hope the weather improves.

    Both, but the wife's temper will cool in time. I'll, at least, try to contain the rust on the car.

    Congrats on that, Sam. 'Glad to see the car going into secure storage inside, if nothing else. Best wishes on the mission. BP

    I am the buyer of the Commander who is not very popular around the homefront at the moment. I just got home last Tuesday with my newly purchased '41 Champion from Pennsylvania. My wife is not overjoyed that I am taking off again for another Studebaker, especially since this one is what she detestingly describes as "Yard art." Needless to say, my Studebaker budget is quite well depleted.
    Ideally, I would like to see the car restored as the plain jane original other than some good-sounding mufflers. In reality, I will probably put it in the dry and hope someday my grandson, now a five-year-old Studebaker fan, will want to install the transmission, etc. in the convertible. As 53k stated above, all depends on what I find when I get it home.

    Smoked as requested. The buyer is a Forum member, SDC member and apparently a long-time Stude guy from Georgia. He admitted thinking of using the four-speed and rear end in his '64 Daytona convertible. However, his wife didn't like the idea. He said he had collected a lot of sheet metal that he bought years ago at SASCO. Final determination will be made when he gets it home dependent on engine condition and such.

    Well, we are down to the last hour for the eBay auction of the first two of Torrey Kirby's 100+ collection of cars. I have been blown away by the numbers of questions and the numbers of views and watchers on these two rough project cars, the2-door '64 Commander 289 4-speed on-
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...CA:MOTORS:1123 and the '63 GT-
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...CA:MOTORS:1123 both low openers with no reserve.
    Problem is, I can't get all these cars on eBay. Most of them are parts cars or just scrap. I decided to go ahead and post a list of the Studebakers here in case anyone is interested in dealing (should give quantity discounts). He also has Kaisers, a Frazer, some AMCs and some Ramblers plus three Nashes, some MoPars, some GM and a Ford rollback.

    I'm glad that Commander got a bid. I was planning to break my rule of NO new project cars if it didn't...
