    1964 Daytona Wagonaire CA Wildfire Survivor

    This car survived the wildfire, the Camp Fire, in Paradise, CA while literally dozens of cars burned around it. We're gonna get it running. I love it. Hope these images aren't too big!

    Did some research on it, and it was for sale in Sacramento in slightly better shape, back in 2015. Barnefinds wrote about the Craigslist listing. We got this from a guy who lost a ton of automobiles during the Camp Fire. I'm gonna send away to the Studebaker museum for the production order. Anyways, thanks for lookin'.

    Is there any fire damage to the car? Looks nice.

    Yeah, the rear windshield cracked from the heat, and the taillight lenses fogged over and one melted out. I found replacement lenses on ebay.

    Check the rubber brake line by the rear axle!

    Alright, thanks! The rubber on the tires had some bubbling too, so...
