          When the car was first listed on ebay I went into het for it to the point I was ready to have a yard sale on a couple of my favorites. When it went over the $20,000 mark, I gave it up. It went to $23,700, I believe, and still never met the reserve. It is a beautiful car, even if it's not in its original incarnation.

              Ya know.... this thread is the first time I've seen any mention of this car (I hadn't seen the earlier thread). But I WAS impressed by the first few photos of the offering. Then my senses started to flash warning signs. Just look at the car and remind yourself that it's SIXTY years old. The '52s had notoriously poor chrome on their brightwork. Heck, my first resto'd Stude was a '52 and at that time (in the mid-70s) one could still get all the exterior brightwork pieces, NOS. Some of them were visibly wanting - right out of the bag or box! Then there's the impeccably clean underside - with 30-some thousand miles on it??? NAH.
              Beautiful car for sure - but being offered with a BIG lie.
              No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                  If someone here is interested in buying it and if it is still available in a couple of weeks, I can go and check it out. We plan to head down that way in the next two weeks. I could do a mechanical and cosmetic evaluation but if noone here is sincerely interested in buying it it would'nt be productive to do so, I have no personal interest in the car, I allready have one!

                          Now all of the "Original Condition" or "Unrestored" reference are deleted.

                          Perhaps the dealer is now aware of the history and has acted to correct the listing..

                          This is a gorgeous, 1952 Studebaker Commander Starliner Hardtop in amazing condition inside and out. This beauty has been pampered all its life and it shows! It is a 37K original mile car that has beautifully restored. This Studebaker in my opinion is "One of the nicest '52 Studebaker Starline'?s around, offered for sale". The car retains all its original sheet metal and is solid as rock. She has a beautiful, all correct interior in it that looks amazing. This was one of Studebaker's top of the line car in 1952. I have had the privilege of selling many of these cars but have rarely come across one as nice as this one here. This is a rare and desirable car in excellent condition!!!!

                          It's loaded with the following equipment:

                          232.6 Overhead Valve V-8 "Numbers Matching"
                          Automatic Transmission
                          AM Radio
                          Full Wheel Covers
                          Back Up Lights
                          Front & Rear Bumper Guards
                          Front & Rear Fender Ornaments (Rare)
                          Clock
                          Wide White Wall Tires
                          Original Spare, Jack and Tools
                          The List goes on and on....


                          This Beautiful 1952 Studebaker has been meticulously cared for since day one. This car is an absolute must see in person to believe how beautiful it really is. It has been painted in beautiful black and looks amazing. All the chrome and trim on this car is in excellent condition. This car was kept inside and treated as a true Collector Car should be! The car is completely rust free and solid as a rock. It is super straight down the sides. This Studebaker again only has 37,000 Original miles. This car has just been offered for the sale for the first time in years. Don't miss this chance, Bid Now!

                          This is a gorgeous, 1952 Studebaker Commander Starlight Hardtop in amazing unrestored, original condition inside and out. This beauty has been pampered all its life and it shows! It is a 37K original mile car that has only been painted once with all original interior and chrome. This Studebaker in my opinion is "One of the nicest original "52 Studebaker"s around, offered for sale". The car retains all its original sheet metal and is solid as rock. She has a beautiful, all original interior in it that looks amazing with very little use. This was one of Studebaker?s top of the line car in 1952. I have had the privilege of selling many of these cars but have rarely come across one as nice and original as this one here. This is a rare and desirable car in excellent original condition!!!!

                            I thought that a seller who wouldn't take over $23K for a sweet 52 Comm K body was nutz until I saw the '52 Champ 4 dr listed for $25K in the new TW today! There was a convertible listed for the same price. In this economy, it is serious sellers who will sell their cars, not those fishing for a rich sucker willing to pay top dollar plus.

                              So far, no one has questioned the mileage. Is it really a 37K mile car? That means when Richard owned it, it had REALLY low miles on it.
