    Have you noticed quite a few of these Craigslist sellers are not the sharpest Knife in the drawer?

                I like it but the 3.8 buick would have go unless it was one with turbo from a grand national. Needs a 5.3 or 6.0 chev pickup motor and trans. Or go back with a Stude.

                  I'm not a particular fan of 4 doors, but that is a decent looking car. If I was in the area, I would check it out.

                      Come on guys. I know we're all immaculate spellers here, but no need to poke fun at someone we don't know.

                      I'm not a huge fan of the Buick motor in there, but if it drives, it's better than nothing, and at least it's a little more unique sounding than SBC.

                      I LOVE the front seat. Can anyone ID what it came out of? I'd put that in my car in a hot second!

                      All in all, it's a cool little car. It'd make a super nice driver.

                        If it was close to me, I would buy it. The 1200 miles one way kills the deal (driving round trip, flying driving or shipping would all be way too much for this car). With that said, I have purchased other Studebakers at much greater distances (high bidder on one in California now), but this one does not justify it for me.

                          the 3.8L V-6 in my '89 Reatta is pretty much bulletproof. it's the 1st generation electronics that is the PITA...
