    I just listed this for a buddy...

    I'm not crazy about the car, but the pics sure turned out neat [].

    BTW, his L-39 is also for sale if anyone is interested.

      No, that's a TORNADO, not a TORONADO. Funny though, I thought the same thing. I clicked on the thread expecting to see a Tornado. If you did too, here you go:

            I would be a very serious bidder on this car if I didn't have to pay coast to coast shipping on it.

            Couldn't one of you straighten up the spring loaded hood ornament for the pictures &lt;G&gt;. They are supposed to be parallel to the front of the car. We used to turn them to be parallel to the length of the car for slip streaming. This one appears to be half way, like you couldn't decide.

              Wow...there's a deal killer .

              $4500 would buy it Gary. I think that's cheap. It would leave you a few grand to transport it...or fly out and drive it back. Nice vacation.

                Rather interesting car, in that it was the only E-body not to have a convertible model cataloged. I can bet a Buick Riviera and maybe a Cadillac Eldorado was used as a doner car to make it work!

                  Hey Gary, I'll fly out and drive it home for you for a plane ticket and gas!

                  Serious offer- I'm WAY overdue for an extended road trip!

                    You are welcome to stay at my house at this end, Bob. I'll give you a tour of the Ute and my three Larks to boot [8D].

                      Oh, come on, Gary!! This would be my big chance to do a cross-country trip- and see Steinkamp's operation!!

                      OK, I'll even pay part of the gas....

                        Thanks for the nice offer. With the price of plane tickets and gasoline now, that may cost about the same as shipping and the car would have 3K more miles.
                        I have e-mailed the seller a couple of questions. If I buy the car, I will get back to you off the Forum.

                          Probably true. But fun to think about anyway![8D]

                            Well Dick,

                            I'm not crazy about the car either. And if I can be candid, I don't think the plane did anything but clutter up the background. Just my 2 cents worth and worth every penny of that.[B)]

                            Miscreant Studebaker nut in California's central valley.

                            1957 Transtar 1/2ton
                            1960 Larkvertible V8
                            1958 Provincial wagon
                            1953 Commander coupe
                            1957 President two door

                            No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                              Definitely not everybody's cup of tea. But they're really good cars, and a pleasure to drive. I had several over the years- no convertibles, but I did have an 83 Riviera convertible, which is the same car underneath.

                              Here in CNY, they met their demise from the frame rusting off just behind the rear axle, depositing the bumper and 3 feet of frame on the pavement[xx(]
