    The Impala is $10000 or best offer, id guess best offer, I didn't think much
    Of it, he also had a 60 something dodge boat there for $3500

    It is interesting to see Studes we have owned re-surface. We have seen this one change hands a few more times...each new owner improved an already nice car.

    The 6 is the "big" 185 version and with the first gear start auto, it wasn't dangerous, but still somewhat embarrassing.

    "To many doors"??? ...yeah, on a coupe maby.
    And MANY of what are considered 'factory performance models' of today are four door cars.

    I think the car Dick had looks much nicer. If I bought a 4-door, it would have to be a V8.

    Any body looking to buy a Stude should include in their search attending a Stude Zone meet or suchever There is always a car or few looking for a new owner that can be had for a fair price. You will get many opinions on it's worth and condition. cheers jimmijim

    If you can get it for that or less you will probably be OK if you ever decide to sell it.

    I think the seller is dreaming at $10k (and hallucinating at $22,500 )
    I thought so too, this blue car is much nicer from what I can see, the front bumper and all the front chrome is badly pitted on the yellow car. the owner of the yellow car told me " I think I paid to much for this car"

    4 doors are a fact of life I can live with. I actually prefer a 64 Cruiser over any Stude other than a Hawk/Avanti for that year. Xcepting the convertible which even then might come down to the flip of a coin if I was faced with a real life decision. Some folks can spiff up a 4 dr rendering it very easy to look at and I've seen other examples that sorta give a 4 dr. a bad name. There is a fine line between stodgy and stately. 4 doors ain't stepchildren to everybody. cheers jimmijim
