58lincoln Thanks a lot guys, really I appreciate all of it. Also, yeah Idk where I'd be without my parents, I guess my dad taught me (or tried to) a lot about respect and it did sink in, I've always had respect for vintage tin, they just don't make them to have character anymore, thanks again guys.-Alex

58lincoln Alright, I also posted the info on the car on the studebaker drivers club forum and word spread very fast, I guess it sounds like the car is pretty much disassembled and the parts are going to good homes so atleast thats a positive in all this negative.

Gear~head Good ony you for posting the address & phone number

58lincoln they put 283's in them in 65-66. Also I found this and thought that it's kinda cool.
"Please, PIXAR: a Studebaker in "Cars 2""

just x out if it asks if u'd like to donate lol.

formerice I'm pretty sure the 64's used the Chevy 283's as a cost cutting as a last ditch. Funny thing, being rare doesn't make stuff valuable which is sad. A 57 Chevy that sold millions, great collector cars, figure that one out. The good news that you can probably buy a perfect ultra rare 56 Golden Hawk cheaper than a 57 Chevy. I own a 52 Willys Areo coupe, rare as hell, not worth much. A friend of mine was trying to sell a mint 327 powered Lark, gotta be rare as can be, I think he can't give it away.

58lincoln I am posting an ad on craigslist, that's a great idea
and yeah, my generation makes me mad sometimes too, I really have a lot of respect for classic iron and the people who built them. -Alex

MARTINSR I see cars all the time at the local Pick-n-pull that make me want to cry. A while ago there was a super solid, original paint ZERO rust 70ish Chevy pickup. It had a wasted quarter panel (bolt on and they reproduce it) and a door was rough but repairable. It was a crying shame. Then how about the 55 Buick Super! My brother and I got all the good stuff off that we could but what a shame that it ended up there.

Hippie Oh the humanity! Somebody needs to grab that 289, if it wasn't so far away it would already be in the back of my pickup headed for my garage.

Ghetto Jet Thats sad to see, post it on your local craigslist, maybe someone will come save it?

For a young man like yourself to have that kind of respect for "vintage tin", is very commendable and it's really good to see that from your generation.
