The example was treated to a restoration some 25 – 30 years ago, where it underwent a engine and transmission rebuild, and exterior repaint in the original colour, having rarely been driven since the car remained in a climate controlled garaged for some 19 years by its previous owner. The car remains in wonderful condition. Some would say a time capsule car… It has most of its rare original accessories including:
Rare 1965 Studebaker Daytona Sports Sedan in Bordaux Red, found on Hemmings.com in February 2017. The seller described this one as an unrestored car, and was asking $55,000 at the time of sale. Considering we've seen these go for under $10,000 in good condition recently, this is a very high asking price. The Seller notes that the vehicle is all original, and runs well, with its 283 Chev V8 - a factory installed unit on te 1965 and 66 model Stdudebakers.
One of our favourite Studebaker models, and one of only 620 V8 Sport Sedans built in 1966, here on Ebay with a very low starting bid. Interestingly, the seller notes that this is a Hurricane Sandy survivor car, which had around 12 inches of water inside. Thankfully, the damage doesn't appear too bad, and the bearings have been re-packed and fluids changed. With such a rare car, this sort of thing wouldn't really deter us.
This Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe is one of just over 6000 built for the 1987 year, and looks to be in pristine condition. The 1987 model was made in far higher numbers than the 1986 Aerocoupe, where only 200 examples were produced for NASCAR homologation purposes.
Another super-rare Studebaker Daytona convertible added to Classic Register. One of only 703 examples built, and the last year of the convertibles before the company shut its doors in 1966. This particular car is offered in Houston, Texas through Gateway Classic Cars, with a price tag of US $29,995.
It needs a lot of work, but it's not a bad 'buy it now' price of $8,500 for this 250 SE offered in Texas on Ebay USA. The rare V8 models of this series are by far the most desirable, but the 250 6-cylinder powered coupe is by no means in oversupply, with just over 5,000 units originally produced.
Rare 1969 Buick GS350 2-door Hardtop Coupe powered by a 350cui small block GM 5.7L V8 producing 280hp and matched to a ‘Turbo 350’ 3-speed column automatic transmission.
The Buick Gran Sport was launched in 1964 as Buick’s answer to the Pontiac GTO. By 1968 it was on its second-generation body that would carry it through to 1972, and the end of mainstream muscle. From 1968 the Buick GS was based on a Skylark Custom and available with a 350-cid V-8 with 4-barrel carby and boasted 280 horsepower.
This car Studebaker Daytona was advertised through Mecum auctoins some years ago, and looks particularly good with the Edelbrock wheels which are often applied to Mustangs. This Daytona is fitted with a 259 Studebaker V8 producing 195hp, and 3-speed automatic transmission. Can't get over how good those wheels look on these Studebakers!
If you have a Studebaker Daytona, please add it to Classic Register so we can keep track of these rare cars that are still surviving!
This 1965 Studebaker Daytona Sports Sedan was offered on Craigslist in December 2016, asking $2,700 USD. The paint appears to be original, with some rust in the floor pans, but overall looks to be worth saving. The original 283 McKinnon V8 is still fitted, and the seller notes that the car still runs. They have also noted that the transmission has been swapped to a floor shift.
