    Once a nice car, now a challenge. I hate to say this, but it looks to me to be not worth restoring. There are a lot of usable parts there for some other cars.

      I think I would take the Front bumpers, Grille and Supercharger with Mountings and Run from the rest!

      I agree, that WOULD have been a really Sweet Clipper Town Sedan, once upon a time.

        I would also take the tail lights they are worth a good bit even as cores the front bumper parts chrome looks pretty nice also. Thee transmission is also the water cooled version very likely has TT.

          Sigh, I remember when we could buy these for $800...........

          But, still seems like a screaming deal for the parts you would get.

            I'd be happy just to have the rear sway bar and brackets!

              Gee, I wonder how many 'boneyard condition' Studebakers, with completely intact original supercharger systems, are still 'lurking' out there somewhere?

                Still has the rare elusive air cleaner assembly!
                Wonder if there's a bumper jack in there somewhere?

                  I have to imagine how beautiful this Car was in it's day.it's good that these cars show up,for those that are in need of hard to come by parts - and speaking of parts,I'm REALLY surprised the blower is actually still sitting where it belongs.

                    Hmmm........only 612.9 miles from my house. Now all I need is a trailer, a tow vehicle, and money. Oh well, reality sets in.

                      Steal of a deal for a parts car. Plus I bet it could be purchased for less

                        I've never seen a dashpad that looked so droopy.

                          And in the Packard-only Lilac color.

                            Every so often there's one of these for sale on e-bay....and more often than not it will have the 'collapsed' dash look! ....I guess that extra padding under the vinyl 'goes away' after sixty years!

                              Sure makes me appreciate how good mine (Wagon) was to start with. Still with the right amount of $$ and energy it could be resuscitated. Good luck to whomever ends up with it.
