Judging by that 1961 Studebaker Lark, I believe it!

Cancer sucks. Cancer post-op is almost worse than the cancer. Best part is, being alive to b*tch about it!

Something tells me the guy paid about $350 for it. Most dealers will look for rust and all that, I doubt he bought a rustbucket for full price.

Lgbpop,

Probably more than $350. Scrap is more than that.

Yes, that looks like a '61 Stude two-door sedan. My father had one back then. I drove it a bit and liked it. It was a 6-cyl, 3-speed on the column. Nice car.

If that SHO (what the thread is about) would go for a couple years, It may be worth $800-900. But if the rust is really bad and has affected it structurally, then it's a parts car.

They usually know what they have when the buy these things. I looked at an 05 Grand Caravan at a 'no advertising' dealer around the corner from me. The underside of the rockers and the front hood lip were rusted to crap. He wanted $4500 for the van so I brought up the rust(cause I did actually like the van and it ran/drove really nice) and he told me "I just got it in and didn't inspect it yet"........ ok........ I then proceeded to tell him that I live around the corner and have seen the van sitting on the lot for over 4 months then walked away cause he was obviously trying to sell off a rust bucket to someone who doesn't know anything.... which is not me!

That being said, I wonder how bad the SHO really is. $950 is a good price. I don't know it looks pretty damn clean to me. Plus it would be the icing on the cake in your stable of Bulls. Hell.... I'd love that SHO!

Four-door. You can see the B-pillar between the doors, and the rear-door lock buttons on the front edge of the rear doors through the windows. My best friend's dad had one of these. Ugly as heck, not about to win Daytona or Indy but ran forever with little time in the garage.

Still sitting on the lot... oddly next to a '97 Taurus GL the same color. He may actually do a body swap (or a 2 for one sale, LOL).



Edit: The SHO is gone.
