Ok, so I've had this car for awile and have worked on it in short intervals dependant upon motivation (as I assume most builds are). Been kickin' around starting a thread for awhile and I guess nows the time since I'm feelin motivated again! By no means do I consider myself a Studebaker fan, when I came across the rolling shell I thought "what is that, that would make a bitchin gasser!" Turned out to be for sale shortly after. I sold my A coupe and started cutting stuff apart. When I started, I had no clue what drivetrain I was going to run etc etc...started lookin into Stude motors and was pretty impressed, so I was donated a stude 289 and some crude informational books to peak through. After rigorous internet searching for Stude speed equiptment and rapidly loosing motivation I came across John Erb who lives here in my home town and has a stockpile of this stuff, he's extremely knowledgable and helpful. Back on track.... Here are the early stages of the build. The hideous, heavy front end was cut off and replaced with 2x4" tubing and a speedway axle kit. Decided to run Radir spindle mount wheels and I'm crossing my fingers that it won't be too scary to drive on the street.
