    Seller knows enough to know it has GT Hawk rear fenders/taillights, doesn't have 14" wheels. Maybe the 259" was just a typo.

    Two caveats:

    1. Just because a car is in Montana today doesn't mean it spent its life there. I learned the hard way when a "solid California car" had severe rust patched with Missouri license plates!

    2. That statement "Owner also has a 289 V8 available from a 1958 Studebaker President." is just chickenshift. State clearly what is included and/or how much additional it is. Again, the "available" once turned out to be at three times the usual market price.

    Personally, I'm not afraid of modified cars. Could be an interesting project, but I don't need any more of those just now. Anyone think the $6500 BIN is a go?

      I would not give 6500 for it. Advertised as having a 259, so where are this engine and transmission? All I see is an empty engine compartment. Are the supercharger bits all present? I do see the blower in the trunk. Some gaps in the description though.

        It's a warning sign to me when I see a blue body tag screwed to a black cowl.

          OUCH! The car is described as a "survivor."

          If that's a survivor, I'd hate to see a car the seller would describe as "a previously torn-up, heavily-modified car without its original engine and half the needed parts, most of which rare and expensive, needed to restore it as an original car." BP

            Is it just me or are the tail lights at the wrong angle?

              Well, they're GT Hawk tailights, so they may have been mounted "off" a little bit due to all the work the guy did on the rear fenders. BP

                  The '58 President sedan actually looks kind of nice!

                    The rear fender flares are a piece of work.

                      Heck... My 57 GH, even with an incorrect power train (58L/T-86) and the wrong hood, at $3,000 strikes me as a better deal than that At least you know what you're getting... jim

                        What a sad example of a rare car.

                          Wrong power steering it or could you have either type in 58? I have 2 57 GH's better than that for sale.

                            I agree, I like it better.

                              If he'd throw in the 58 sedan, it would be worth his asking price. After all, the rear fenders will soon be available new.
