  • Is this a fair price for this 66 cruiser

    So I've been looking to get a classic car for this coming spring and an older lady that I work with said she had a 66 Studebaker cruiser I said I would think about it went home*and did some research and I think the history is interesting on them so I told her I was interested she said she would sell to me for 3500 its got power front brakes all new brakes power steering new fule pump new hoses her husband went through the engine he is a mechanic mostly new interior needs seats done though has 43000 original miles has option sheet and all manuals that's all I can think of right now is it worth the price?

    Why don't you go and check it over. Then see what you can get for 3500 in the way of 1966 in the big three.

      I think $ 3500 is a really good price if you make sure it isn't rusty underneath.

            Looks like a pretty good deal so far. Maybe some folks can explain where the usual rust appears and you can look closely in those areas.

              From the pictures it looks like a steal ! You need to check out under side as someone has mentioned and also the frame, if the bottom plate on the frame is wavy beware

                If it's as nice as the photos suggest, I would think the price is fair. Personally, if I wanted the car, I'd offer less - doesn't hurt to do that. If she stands firm, it's worth her price - again, assuming it's as pretty up close as it is in the pics.
                No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                    Those appear to be Bendix/Dunlap Power DISC Front brakes with Finned 11 Inch Rear Drums, and a Flanged Rear Axle, a BIG Plus on a Studebaker over the tapered Axles of prior models. That car should be a steal at $3,500.00 baring serious rust out underneath.

                        Thanks Bob, but no thanks. We already have one '65 Daytona 8 Sports Sedan in the Family, and I do not think we can afford to re-frame TWO of em!

                          Since the 66's have taken off some and more people are liking them I have a perfect frame for one in my shop it has been there inside for 15 years just standing there in the corner along side a 63 wagon frame both are for sale in case some one needs one for their project.

                            I don't know about that Dad--

                            I think Mom's '65 is at least as nice as your '64 hardtop...

                              The right price is that which is mutually satisfactory. I have bought 3 Cruisers recently, a V8 needing work but basically ok for $3000, another V 8 in great condition basically wash and drive for $9000 and a 6 Cylinder in good condition for $5000.

                              I hope you can find a mutually acceptable price and wish you happy motoring.
