Well here we go. I am going to try and capture the upcoming build thread of our 32 Studebaker Rockne. I have had other threads in the past back in 2013 of the car and how it was finished at that time. The car has actually been in the family since 1968 and my brother and I grew up in this car before our father built a matching 32 Rockne sedan (see picture). My father was in the process of building the car before he passed away suddenly at age 51. After 13 years after his passing we finally completed it. It has now been done for close to 8 years and it is time to change it again. This time we are looking to bring it back to its original roots more to have a more traditional look while adding most, if not all, of its original trim, handles etc. back onto the car. I will try to have this thread picture heavy to document it along the way. My only request is please keep any of your negative comments to yourself as I do not care what someone else would change on the car. If it is not your cup of tea then please move along. My first post here will document some of the historical photos and shots from magazines that some may recall. I hope some of the old school guys on here remember my father and when the car went from black to the candy purple, which it was best known for. The car, as shown in pictures, was at the very first Streed Rod Nationals in Peoria, IL. My father and friends are pictured laying by the car. One of the pictures shows the family when my brother and are were just kids. Now my boys are getting to enjoy the family car. Stay tuned for updates as they progress. The goal is to have it done for the spring of 2019. Lo Man Rods in Tipp City, OH will again take charge of this new build.
