    The light blue 41 coupe with the avalon sheild on the door is mine. It is believed to be one that I drove in 1966. It belonged to Richard Collier and was the AHRA reord holder. The body traveled all over the country, was a bracket car and almost a street rod when I found it and brought it back to a race car. There were 2 41 coupes in the town where I live that were race cars.
     
  2. Your car is too cool. Thats my favorite Stude body style. My next car is gonna be a coupe or a tudor sedan.

    That top red Studa Skuda is racing at Westhampton Dragway, very early 70's. I remember the car racing at Islip Speedway when I worked there, which was an 1/8 mile. I believe the owner was Frank Wilson from Hauppauge if memory serves me. There was another Stude that ran at Islip with a FI Pontiac for power and I think it had a hydro in it. That red car was beautiful.

    Wow...............where did you get that picture. Would it be possible to get a copy as I still plan on recreating that car with a little help from the man who accually drove it back in the 60's. He's really excited about the possibility of sitting behind the wheel again. I plan on having him build a 301 ci chevy engine by the end of the year. I just bought another 40 coupe off of E-bay that was in a lot better condition then the 39 that I had to start the build.

    P.S. There is a VERY RARE 51 Austin window panel on E-bay for sale.:D

    Funny how any old coupe becomes cool when it becomes a gasser!

    I was eying that one also.... Looked pretty decent in the pictures, but a lot about the description scared me. Hope it's nicer than decribed. I was a bit surprised at the selling price.

    IMO, I always thought the Stude gassers looked better than the Wyllis. Hey Oldsrocket, what side of town do you live on? I am really digging your build.

    I'm 20min north of columbus in sunbury. Those pics were taken awhile back during a mock-up phase. I'm finally getting to a point of starting some actual work on it.

    My setup plans include:
    1964 pontiac 389 pushed 60 over to 400ci w/ a 6x2 cross-ram intake and vertex magneto.

    rear will be a 8.5" 10-bolt posi rear running a 4.88 rear gear

    Tranny at this point will be a TH400, unless a 4spd happens to fall into my lap somehow.

    I just scored a set of slot skinnys for the front and a set of hoosiers for the slots on teh rear. The stance will change a bit soon, once the motor gets in there and the tires I plan to use are on there.

    where are you?

    That WAS the one on E-bay I bought a week ago. Yea I hope its in a lot better condition then the one that I have right now. I plan on picking it up next Saturday. I already have the hilborn injection, 58 vw seats, halibrands with pie cut slicks, straight axle with hairpin radius rods ,61 chev truck rear with loooooong traction bars and plan on painting it red and put THE BOSS back on the doors.

    Big Block Bill,
    That red Studebaker was not the Studa Skuda. I owned the Studa Skuda and it was candy apple red and was a sedan not a coupe. I thank you for remembering, it has been a while as the last time I ran was 73. Wow how the drags have changed. I remember the other Studebaker, it was silver and also a 2 door sedan, lived around the corner also in Hauppauge. I was lucky enough to get the Studa Skuda in Speed and Supercar picture was taken in 1970. Thanks again, Frank Edited Part! The first time I looked the first picture it was not open or I did not see it, so the very top picture "is" the Studa Skuda. Anyone have more pictures of it? That is the best one I have now as my old ones are old, like me. Thanks again...

    Since Im home burried in 2 feet of snow I decided to sit down and try to attach a photo of THE BOSS from 1970 thru 1972. The picture was taken at the Country club in Hanover,Pa. Not a real good picture. Randy

    Damn...............Thats a wild coincidence. Thats a pretty rare truck. I have been looking for one of those for a couple years now thats workable. Most I have found are already done , or too rusty to work with. Im looking for some more photos of the stude and will try to post later today.

    Since we are showing our rides.
    Thought you might like to see a few shots of the Willys Ive had since 1978. These shots were taken around 1971.

    Are both of those dueces yours? Bet that roadster is a blast to drive. And yes I got your message about the Stude parts. I was going to pick up the coupe this weekend in Ohio untill we got this blizzard. I was going to get it home then decide what Im going to keep and what Im going to let go. I will give you first crack at it. [​IMG]

    Been trying to knock away at my project a bit lately. Recently I got the pontiac motor mocked up in the frame. Also started building headers. I have yet to see a set of aftermarket produced fenderwell headers, so didn't have much of a choice. I can see why you don't see them being made, since the exhaust ports point dang near straight down. The ones I'm building are coming along, but still a lot of work left to do.....finish welding, grinding, and install the collectors. It's harder than it looks! $200-$300 for a set of headers that you don't have to mess with is well worth it after this little task. So far, I have three nights into them and would still not consider them perfect. My first set of self-fabricated headers though....
