  • Potential good buy

    This looks like a solid Cruiser. A little buffing could pay dividends. Not mine and don't know the car.

    I wonder if it comes with the Allstate trailer frame?

            It does look like a "good buy" based on the ad.
            I wonder why the ad states; "1957 Studebaker". Hopefully, they did't get the titles mixed up for two cars.
            After owning four 1964 Cruisers, I find it hard to muster up any interest in owning another one.

                  Dang!

                  Was hoping it would continue to go unnoticed. I've been talking to that guy since December. He initially put it up on CL and then when I inquired about it said that his mother had a change of heart and was flip-flopping on whether or not she wanted to sell it. I continued to pester him and a few weeks later he responded back that she had reluctantly agreed to let it go but he was no longer considering best offers - it was a firm $2K. By then he'd taken it off of CL. I'd been hoping to get him to come down some, cuz that's about all I've got in disposable income right now and the whole nut would have to include the cost to rent a truck and get it back over the mountains in the dead of winter. He put it back on CL last week - I figured it was his way of giving me a little more motivation.

                  As soon as he sees the comments here I'll never get him to budge.

                  Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

                  Here are more pictures of the car.

                      Yes Mike, I talked with James yesterday, and it seems they are still very much on fence about keeping it or not.

                      Maybe a fair offer like 2500 to $3000.00 would change their mind, but maybe not.

                        I dislike adds that state "Rare!"

                        Really? So rare that they have the ONLY one know in existence?

                        So rare that the price index for a Studebaker has been flat since 08 and not recovering like other "rare" cars.

                        I guess RARE means 2K is a steal of a buy and not the temperature of my steak!

                        So rare I've let it sit outside in the elements instead of my nice barn?

                        So rare, it "Must Go!"

                        Picaso are Rare, Studebaker Cruiser are not..

                        RARE was my 67 Vette with factory Tri-Power, and the 73 Simca 1200 in the background!



                        AHHHHH!

                          The "RARE" thing really does not bother me, because I know they are talking about among all 1960's Cars, Studebakers actually are.
                          Is this particular Model and or equipment among Studebakers actually Rare? Certainly NOT.

                            It would only bother me if a Studebaker guy were to say it.

                            Let's face it, the overwhelming majority of the public has no idea what a Studebaker is and those who have them sitting around in their yards, and who aren't dyed in the wool car guys, will naturally think it's rare 'cuz they hardly ever see other ones out there. So, relatively speaking, compared to all of the other makes/models of cars out there, it is rare.
