1950 Studebaker Champion Bullet Nose. It has been in my family for many many years. Body is in great shape and undercarriage is completely solid. The car was painted one time in the 50's. the paint does have plenty of chips, but there is really no body damage to speak of. There are a few small spots of rust, which I tried to show in the pictures. At the very lower front or each fender well, and on the lower fenders there was some mud in each fender, probably there since the 50's, that caused a small area of rust on each fender. Trunk is solid, at the bottom of the spare tire well there is a few small spots of rust that I put tape over to keep any bugs or critters from having a way into the car. I put small patches of the same aluminum tape over any other factory holes around the car as well. I like the patina on it, it shines and it has not been waxed in probably 25 years. I used polishing compound on it to clean up the paint, but have not waxed it as I was going to touch up a few of the chips first. I removed the interior as it was original and intact but old. I of course will include all the door panels, etc. I put all of the handles and hardware right back on the car and nothing is missing, and the door panels are original and complete. The floors and frames are totally solid. I left the original burlap on the seats and put a temporary interior together just so I could drive and enjoy the car. It is actually not too bad and quite comfortable, but a new interior kit is in order. I found a kit online for about $600. The car has the 6cyl flathead and the manual transmission. All brake hardware has been replaced. It has new tires, and new exhaust. I am driving it and it drives very well. It is a beautiful car that can be enjoyed as is or be the basis for an easy restoration of a very classic Bulletnose Study with only 29,000 miles.
I want the new owner to be happy with their purchase. Please ask any questions before bidding. You are welcome to come see and drive the car, and inspect anything you wish to on this car. The car is sold as-is, and all sales are final. A $500 Non-Refundable deposit is due upon selecting 'buy it now'. Car must be picked up within 7 days of auctions close. Buyer to arrange any shipping, I can not deliver this car.
I would consider a newer car. I would prefer a Volvo, but would consider barter for any cars or truck / SUV - Nissan, Maxima, Forerunner, Toyota, lexus, Mercedes, BMW, Corvette, etc. I am looking for a reliable, clean interior, daily driver vehicle.
