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

      A nice car. The listing says A/C, CC, PW. I didn't wait for the extra pictures. Does it show these items. It does say that it was built as a driver. With or without these items it looks like a deal for someone interested in this vintage of Studebaker. Isn't this what BondoBill is having restored? I wonder why there isn't even an opening bid on the auction, let alone the BIN.

        That is a nice one. Seller has low feedback and negatives though. I love that green.

          As long as you don't mind the rear window incorrectly installed in a zip out flap, and the rear fender welt incorrectly left black instead of being painted body color. The top mechanism and bows also appear to be too light in color.

          Picky, huh?

            I understand your points Roy, but top down and purring on a country two-lane on a sunny summer day, I could envision myself overlooking those flaws.

              What is with the battery? In BP's favor the battery hold down is there, but what kind of battery is that?

                It looks like a 6-volt Optima battery.

                They are long and narrow like that, with only three cells. When you put them in a tray like that, the "regular" battery hold-down will only catch the battery on diagonal corners. It does look goofy.

                Here's a "regular" 12-volt Optima in one of my cars. Imagine it cut lengthways down the middle to produce 6 volts. It would be a much "longer" rectangle than you're used to seeing, and would fit diagonally in a 6-volt battery tray because it would be too long for the tray. BP

                We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                Ayn Rand:
                "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                  that sure looks like the one in the movie "DOA"

                  I wonder if there is any history . . .

                    I sure don't see any $30,000.00 spent on this thing. Unless someone paid $29,000.00 to buy it!

                    The Engine and compartment looks untouched for many moons or forever.

                    It would be an OK car for a lot less.

                      The opening bid is only $9800 and the BIN is $14K (that it may not reach). Do you think that it is okay for $9800?

                        It looks like one a friend sold about 2 years ago in Mobile Alabama for about 6 grand and some freshing up. it went up to the northeast.
