for sale

Price: US $15,000.00


This is one of the most sensational Studebakers of all time and was the top dog in 11 car Virginia collection. It was inspired by the great grand touring cars of Europe. It had significant power, for it time, with its McCulloch (Paxton) belt driven supercharger on Studebaker's 289 V-8 that produced 275 hp at 4800 RPM. Yet it had family seating, and smooth comfortable riding.
It under went a complete frame off (body off) in 04 that ended about a year later. Just about every part that would come off was taken off, replaced, rebuilt, or refurbished. Corroded areas were cut out and welded in placed with new metal components parts from Classic Industries, no Bondo to hide rust, no pop rivets for mechanical purposes.

The object of all of the frame off restorations in this collection was to recreate the cars to new original, magnificent status but no attempt was made to restore am radios (except for knobs and face plate), and ash trays were not reinstalled. They are not number 1 show quality but, because they are driven many judges say a number 1 car has to be a trailer queen. If there are any questions, or if a part was not covered, please feel free to ask, it probably was replaced. Car is located in Deltaville, Va and is owned by its only SDC member.

Condition:Seller Notes:
“This is a frame off by a serious collector, selling due to health, many do not see it as a 60 year old car. While just about every thing has been replaced and or repaired it would not be wise choice for long distances or high speed driving. Today's cars are much safer. Be prepared to answer "what is it" when it is gassed up. Has been very reliable to and from shows and occasional country drives. consistent winner/eye catcher.”
