Please read Entire ad. All info known is included, & Ive done research, so low ball offers, will be ignored, & deleted! 55 Studebaker speedster 2dr cpe. V8. Rare car. one of only 2215 built, and one year only. so not many left! had 45 more hp and other options. The Speedster was Studebaker's response to Fords' Thunderbird and Chevrolets' Corvette. The car was equipped with a 259 cubic-inch Passmaster engine. The car weighed 3,301 lbs The Speedster was powered by the small-block V-8 that was modified to a high-performance level. It was bored out to 259 cubic-inches from 225 cubic-inches and developed 185 horsepower-45 horsepower more than the early Studebaker V8! The 1955 Speedster was at the top of the Studebaker's price line-up, costing $3,252 new. The car had factory Diamond Stitched Leather Interior. Studebaker re-introduced the President nameplate for 1955 for their premium offerings. The prestige model was the President Speedster, a stylish update of the Raymond Lowey design first introduced in 1953. A number of unique touches were applied to the Speedster, including two- or three-tone colors, & larger front bumpers, & more. Pretty much complete, been sitting for yrs. Eng cond. unknown. has damage, but comes with solid replacement body! and tons of parts. even extra straight frame. (see in pic, leaning against damaged car) parts car is Very solid, (see pics of replacement shell, floors are nice!) as are parts. person was gathering parts for resto, so did not buy junk, we are talking 1955, so not everything is perfect, but almost all is above average. due to health, he was unable to finish. Lots of parts. Pretty much most everything needed to put back together. could be worth a lot when done. or make a sweet custom or hot rod. Not for beginner, this will probably be a body off resto, so no, you wont be driving it in next 2 weeks! but well worth restoring. Package deal. All or None. $3500 takes. Restored, can go for well over $30k. Both cars have paperwork. can do $1000 deposit, and hold cars for up to 14 days on balance. No Trades If you know what you are doing, you could roll this out, ready for paint by spring time!!
