    Joe and I were just talking about that car last night. It looks like a solid car for someone with the desire to fix one.

      Talk about a potential "fun" project! That looks like it could have been one of those high-end high-dollar cars that fell into depression era hard times. Restoration could have several possibilities, from an all-out restoration, to an example of "depression era utility modifications," rat-rod, or full modern drive train hot rod.

      Either choice, done properly, there is no cheap option. However, there is enough of the car remaining for all possible options. Certainly too good to be scrapped for parts. That front bumper looks to be from an early post war Studebaker.

        I guess that makes Richard Quinn's coupe twice as common as it was before- almost as common as the four seasons roadsters. Evan

            I believe there are only 5 or 6 coupes, but probably a few dozen roadsters.

            Dick Quinn's coupe is the only restored one and is for sale the last I heard.

              Matthew; The number of '31 President roadsters known is 54!! Number of coupes, only 5, but realistically maybe 3 could be restored.

                  Would there be lots of dictators, or are they somewhat limited as well?

                    The Dictator was the small eight on the shorter wheelbase. Nice car but not the size or prestige of the larger President (or Commander). Yes, they are equally rare. The Dictator was not offered in a convertible roadster in '31 but the Coupe was offered.

                      Thanks Dick for the post! I have got numerous emails and even a couple of phone calls about the Coupe. Everyone likes it as they have not seen one for sale. I have talked to Dick Quinn in the past and their are not many of these around. Everyone that has contacted me has asked " why are you selling it"? I really don't want to sell it but I have no room for it. I mention in the ad on eBay that I bought 2 cars in the deal, well, the other one was a common 1931 Four Season Roadster and I wanted to,add it with my,other 3 roadsters.

                        Just wanted everyone that checked this post that the President Coupe has been sold. The new owner is excited and cannot wait till it gets to its new home in Oregon!
