Bought the Studebaker in Lewistown, Montana in 1992.

Was on a Consignment lot.

Always stored inside Barn/Garage.

Driven occasionally to keep everything in good order.

Last of Studebaker line and came original with 283 Chevy engine.

Drives well and needs wheel alignment to center steering wheel.

Still has its original 1965 Montana License plates.


Very clean bit of Studebaker history.

Please watch the two videos to get as much detail information.

Also included over 80 photos.

A truly "honest car" that looks good from 10 feet and drives well.

Take a vacation to Montana and cruise home.
