  • Wanting 1965-1966 Wagonaire in Midwest

    I am seeking a solid, drivable Wagonaire for sale in the Midwest. I think a Chevy powered wagon would suit me better because of the cost of rebuilding a Stude engine. It does not need to be a show piece but should not be full of rust either. Herb Price Burlington IA herbpcpa@yahoo.com

    I think you will find that restoring a well worn driver or a dead needing everything Car, costs way more in the long run, even though it is fairly cheap in the short run.

    Also when you are looking for a Car as rare as '65 Wagonaires are, you don't get to choose the location.

    Here is one I know nothing about, but it looks good.

      A six cylinder with some sort of floor shift, aftermarket steering wheel, no radio, two-tone paint and they want to start at above $10K. They need to find someone that does not know Studebakers.

      I agree, that you should not limit yourself by distance. $1500 in shipping will not buy much body work.

        I agree 100%. Too; if a cherry 1965-66 wagon for sale only had a Six: swapping in a Chevy V8 is no strain since everything is already in place from the bellhousing back (AT or 3 spd). All one would need are the V8 engine mount pedestals, V8 throttle linkage and exhaust manifolds/headpipes. Many of us (including myself) have swapped in SBC's into Studes.
