1950 Studebaker Land Cruiser
A TRUE "Barn Find"! PLUS it's 2 for the price of 1! This is a 1950 Studebaker Land Cruiser bought NEW by my wife's grandpa in 1949. In about 1959, grandpa bought a wrecked 1950 Studebaker Commander as a parts car. The Land Cruiser was driven until the early 1980's, and was then parked in the barn, along with the Commander. A few years ago, I bought them and stored them inside my shed, with the intent to restore the Land Cruiser. I later moved the Commander outside. Unfortunately, I've never had the money or the time to do the restoration. I'd like to see the Land Cruiser restored while my mother-in-law is around. So, I'd ask whoever buys them to give her a ride when you're done. The Land Cruiser fenders have some rust. But the fenders are solid on the Commander, and the rears have already been swapped over to the Land Cruiser. The front fenders from the Commander have also been removed and I believe that they should fit on the Land Cruiser. This was the first of two years for the "Bullet Nose", and the noses are in good shape on both cars. I also have the original hood ornaments for both. Both cars have the "Suicide doors", flat-head straight 6 engines and 3 on the tree transmissions. The Land Cruiser is basically a luxury, "stretched" version of the Commander, adding 4 inches to the rear passenger compartment. The Land Cruiser has some really cool innovative features - - such as a crank up antenna, side-vents and AM radio. Both cars are being sold for one price. Buyer must take both. You'll also get a copy of the owner's manual (if I find the original, you'll get that too), a magazine advertisement and a shop manual. Please only bid if you're committed to restoring the Land Cruiser to its original glory. I really want my mother-in-law to see it running again!
