  1. I spend a lot of time working with post-war classics and some of the big pre-war showstoppers. I have not spent enough looking at the 20s and of these models. They look like a lot of fun. I'll pass this information along to the owner. Thank you very much.
  2. it is in British Columbia, in Canada. Not far from Seattle (the closest major US city).
  3. Thanks for the comment. How do we go about finding a home for it? Time is running out.
  4. Thanks for your advice. Here are some more photos. The head is off in the photo of the motor, but it is under the car as well as both bumpers. There are spare bulbs and the discs for the rear turning lights. Not sure what other parts he has collected over the years. There was literally a room full of parts for vintage cars. I have another post on here about the 1947 Cadillac Imperial Sedan that is beside the Stude. Basically what you are saying is that the market is weak for closed cars. Any idea of value? It appears to be original paint and interior. Maybe even cord wheels.
  5. Hello AACA & fellow Cadillac enthusiasts- My friend's father owned two of these great classics during his life. This one he kept until he passed away. We are trying to ascertain value for the car and find a way to sell the car. I've done a bit of research and they appear to be fairly rare. Some models look very valuable. It is all original. I don't know when he bought the car, but I know it has sat at his present residence for 43 years. During that time it has not moved. The body is solid overall. The fenders and the step have rust damage and a few dents. The paint appears to be the original coat. It is cracked and beat up. Mileage shows just over 2630, which means it has most certainly rolled over. It has the Hydra-Matic transmission. Small round parking lights, 5-bar grill. Motor appears to be in good condition as does woodwork. Chrome is not badly weathered. I believe it is matching numbers. It has the radio and fender mounted antenna. He started to do some work to the motor and attempted some patch work (in fiberglass - definitely a bad decision, but just on one fender). There are some spare parts, new correct whitewall tires. Apparently it belonged to the Eaton family, who were quite famous in Canada for owning a large chain of department stores. Any advice or comments will be gratefully received. Thank you in advance. I have lots of photos. We are wondering if something like ebay would be best, or private sale and where to? Would you keep it original? I think it deserves a restoration.
  6. My friend has inherited his dad's 1922 Studebaker Special Big Six. It has been in the family garage since the 50s. It's in unrestored, original shape (needs either nothing, or a full restoration depending on what gets done with it). He'd like to sell the car to make room for other projects, but there are very few benchmarks out there price wise on this car. Anyone have any ideas as to what price range he's looking in? He doesn't want to rip anyone off, but he wants a realistic idea of what it's worth.
