Vehicle Description

GORGEOUS AFFORDABLE CLASSIC Powerful small block 289 V-8, AT, PS, PB. Rust proof fiberglass body. Former national show trophy winner now a reliable daily driver. Handles well, accelerates strongly, solid on road, brakes well. You will get many compliments from new friends. Very nice deep shine black finish, 3 small bubbles touched up. Chrome is good except for tarnished underside of rear bumper (hard to see). New premium tires, older chrome wire wheels have several touched up spots. New stainless steel exhaust. Solid frame and hog troughs (repaired). Many new parts, usually NOS. Easy parts availability. Carefully maintained by local Studebaker garage. Fresh MA state inspection of all safety related parts. Includes service manuals and 20 years of maintenance records. Odometer just rolled over, less than 200 miles showing. Interior is good overall. Dash, carpeting and seats are nice. Vinyl on rear deck, door tops and armrests is worn (see pictures), replacement bids of $600 to $800. You could fix tachometer, radio antenna and AC if you care. I have owned for the last 17 years. Am selling because EBay made me buy an XKE and a 300zx and the wife won't give up her garage stall. If you are looking for a unique, great looking classic that won't break the bank, call Jeff in Boston on (978)287-5931 evenings or weekends for details. You could drive this one home.
