Description for Studebaker Commander 1927

The first owner drove this Studebaker 39,000 miles in eastern Washington. When he passed his sons couldn't decide who would get the car so they put it on blocks and painted itblack with a brush to prevent rust. Both of the boys eventually passed and my father boughtthe car from the estate ($5K) 34 years ago in Wenatchee Washington. Dad wanted a project for the two of us. On the way home we stopped at a diner by the Columbia River, a man in the Diner offered Dad double his purchase price ($10K)just to back the car off the trailer (pictures of the car on the trailer in 1983). The car runs but has not been driven in 10-15 years. Somewhere Dad found a extra engine that was used in a homemade sawmill (included with the sale). I have the original hood ornament which has a broken arm. All side windows roll down. Window shades are fragile but intact. Everything is original and unmolested. It has a few rips in the upholstery and the head liner needs to be tightened. I also have an extra right rear fender. The sale of our family farm and loss of appropriate storageis the only reason this car is available for sale. I am willing to work with the buyers transportation company if shipping is required.
