If you spend any time surfing eBay auctions, you’ll often find more valuable information in the Q/A session at the bottom than in the listing from the seller. Here is a car that has a sort of inquisition going on from Studebaker aficionados. He’s getting peppered with questions that he has no answers for but comes back to the basics “it’s a fun car that draws a lot of attention for $7500” if you like it go for it. Find this 1965 Studebaker Wagonaire currently bidding for $7,800 on eBay with a few hours to go, located in Waukesha, WI.
The guy has a car that he’s enjoyed and now wants to sell it, and the starting bid at $7,500 is very resonable for a nice condition classic, even if it doesn’t have the original engine. The seller has a Superbird, a Daytona, a Cadillac SportWagon, and another Ford Wagon in the driveway, so he looks to be a car guy, but maybe not a Studebaker guy?
Its got a Studebaker R1 Engine from an Avanti and a 4 speed (probably a T-10 in Studebaker, maybe a Studexpert can chime in the comments) its in good overall shape and can be driven as is. This car is either from ’64 or ’65 depending on if you can believe the people in the questions, but the it isn’t a 1967 because 1966 was the last year of any Studebaker production.
1964 or 1965, R1 or inline-6, perfect matching numbers or frankenbaker — who cares!! $7500 is chump change anymore for a car that can turn itself into an ElCamino with the turn of a crank. Great for lawn service folks who need an occasional car transplant trees when the pickup that usually use to dump ladders on the freeway is in the shop.
