  • possible good buy for someone

    Hard to tell for sure with the limited number of pictures, but this could be a good buy at $3500. I know nothing more about it.

      It seems if you were really serious about the car being a sub-30K example you would want to back that up with as many pictures as E-pay would allow...

        If that car has been a northeast car all its life (it has a Mass. plate on the front), Look for rust underneath. Back in the mid 70s I knew of an all original 63 Ford Falcon conv. that looked pristine on the outside. The owner scrapped it when the frame buckled due to rust. But then again, that was a Ford

          Guys, I got pictures from the seller.

          I think this car is a STEAL.

          The pictures show a beautiful interior. Headliner, dash, seats and door panels are great. Seats are redone in incorrect but beautiful tweed. Inside the trunk is clean, and looks rust-free underneath.

          If I could I would hit the BIN. If a ready buyer sees the pictures I got, it will be grabbed up quickly. It's one of those rare cases where the car is well underpriced, and didn't know how to do a proper listing.

          Somebody needs to get after this car!

                Well, the seats have been completely reupholstered; so, so much for the all-original interior claim!

                Nice battery hold-down, though. BP

                  Yes and a TERRIBLE combination of Colors as well, TWO on the Door Panels; Rose and Chestnut was plenty, one of the Two SHOULD have been matched on the Seats instead of that way off Carmel Color.

                    I'd say if it was a V8 he'd have a good shot at $3500...even with the (nicer than stock) redone interior.

                      Agreed. If it was a V8 car, it would be worth starting out at $3,500 and then redoing the seats! BP

                        BTW, a 63 Lark would have cream colored wheels. I wonder if the whole car has been repainted? (plus the car looks brown in the ad and the firewall looks rose mist in the pics Bob posted...but that could be just the lighting)

                        Also, no wide whites in 63.

                          Dick, I think you're right about the paint mis-match.

                            Yep I thought that Tan Paint did not look like anything Factory, just still ANOTHER "Seller" that does not know what he is selling.
                            It's a good thing Bob did not go out and buy it, by the time we got finished it's pretty much done.

                            But it still is a very clean looking Car, just not very much value there.

                              I think you guys are nuts! Here's a running car with clean interior in excellent condition, perfect headliner, rust-free body, new premium battery, new exhaust, all new tune-up parts, solid and clean underneath. If it checks out to be as pictured, you get a collector car that could be a daily driver, that is turn-key or close to it. Sure not everything is "factory correct", but for that money, so what? The seats are better than anything Studebaker ever offered in that model, and the car has been well-preserved.

                              I think that with a car like this, a person is not likely to be sitting at an IM hoping for a 400 score. The non-mechanically inclined can get an old car that's all ready to get in and drive, or very close to it; and all for the cost of a cheapo paint job or interior rehab. And let's not forget, the BIN is $3500; it might be had for even less tha that!

                              I think you guys are WAY off on this one. If I wasn't already overloaded I'd buy it just for the fun of it!

                              You newbies to the club, pay no attention to these nerds. For that price, no way you can get hurt!
