How cool is this? An extremely original and untouched example of one of Americans more unique designs, perhaps the first true SUV predating the GMC Envoy's sliding roof by nearly 40 years it was found in the desert southwest where it survives for more than 50 years. The sun has baked the original finish to produce this killer patina that would look great preserved with a clear coat or would make for an easy prep for paint if you decide.
The exterior is in remarkable condition having survived with just a few dents (see all 100- pics) and retaining most of the original trim. All of the glass is in good shape and operational as are the doors and tailgate. The Wagonaire roof slides easily as well. The hood latch however, is not operational, therefore there are no pics of the engine or drive train so assume there is not one (there is an engine present, however the condition or completeness is unknown).
The interior appears mostly complete however, the beauty of the desert climate extends only to preservation of metal, not so much to upholstery and most interior materials. While mostly complete, it will need complete restoration. The good news here is that being mostly complete, it will serve as a template for restoration of key components such as the seats and door panels.
Underside photos reveal a fairly solid and complete chassis with superficial rust present on most components ( again, sell pics).
This kick ass 1964 Studebaker Commander Wagonaire hasn't run in decades and will need complete restoration therefore it is sold as a non-running project and we cannot perform any additional work on this Wagon or build it for you (SOLD AS IS/WHERE IS). The winning bidder may have the option of coming to the shop to pick up the Wagon and Hang out!
If you're looking for a really cool Station wagon from the 60's you won't find a better example that's priced to sell! This would be perfect for Cruise Night, Advertising and Promotional use or as a kick ass addition to your collection, you decide!

Photos About Us “I’ve been obsessed with cars since… I was born.”
Richard Rawlings had a car by age fourteen, and had gone through nearly twenty cars by the time he was out of high school. His father worked three jobs his whole life—two to make ends meet for the family, and one to buy toys. Neither a mechanic nor a fabricator, his father took pride in his car collection. Needless to say, this stayed with Richard.
Rawlings was always working, and always chasing pipe dreams. By twenty-one, he’d been a cop, a fireman, and a medic. But he wanted more. After a rough stint of sleeping on his sister’s couch, he got his act together and entered the world of trading sales. Here he solidified his business savvy, and went on to build an advertising and printing firm from the ground up. The company grew to become a “juggernaut” in the Dallas area. A mere four years later, the company sold, and with that money Gas Monkey Garage was born.
Aaron Kaufman worked at a shop Rawlings frequented, and loved the stuff Rawlings brought in for him. Kaufman always went above and beyond for him. When Gas Monkey opened, Rawlings called him up and asked if he wanted to work for him. The premise was simple: Rawlings wanted the fastest, most expensive, most badass hot rod shop to be found, with apparel and a show on Discovery to boot. Kaufman thought he was crazy, but signed on anyway. Eight years later, the shop is all that and more.
They owe their success to a strict business model. They don’t buy parts—only whole models without too much rust. Owing to his business background, Rawlings has a handle on the market, and knows the price he ought to pay. In ninety days or less, the job will be done, whether they start with a decent model or a carcass. Then it’s onto the next job without hesitation. If a finished car sits too long, Rawlings will sell it at a loss. He’s interested in a killer operation, not a stockpile.
Their roles within the shop are clear. Rawlings is first and foremost an entrepreneur. He wants to sell a style, push a brand, and make sure Gas Monkey Garage never stops growing. Kaufman runs the shop, armed with his mastery of mechanics, electrics, and fabrication. The dynamic is vital, the common ground being their mutual love of classic cars. Rawlings has always been an old soul when it comes to cars, and his style has brought in a steady flow of clientele who trust his no-B.S. methods. “Anyone can go out and buy a Ferrari.” Rawlings’ dream car? “A 1932 Ford Roadster—the holy grail of hot rods.”
