I just bought this 39 anyone have any info about its history?
A friend of mine bought this '39 Champion in the late 70's
He sold it a few years later,Regret is to the bone on that sale.

Here are some shots of when my pal Kenny (R.I.P.) built my Stude for D/G back in 68. The shot of it in the magazine is after I bought it 25 years ago and put it back together with the motor (mo 302) Kenny had in it. 1967 Chevy crate motor with a 4-speed and 58 Olds rear packin 5:38s
Up date on this Ron Colson car, What it looks like now and Then...
awesome old photos, they are gold!
Ya! I wish the ole boy was around to go for a ride! Well,maybe he is ridin over there.....
If ya look closely you can see the Z/28 emblem Kenny had on the grill! After all he built it with a 1967 MO 302 Z/28 engine, remember this pic was 1968 the first year of that emblem but the second year for the 302 Z/28...

i saw this one on ebay about 2 yrs ago , then on craigslist Arizona a little while later
hi, i bought the stude from gup , and now have the full history on the car, it took a bunch of searching and was very rewarding for all involved...go to this HAMB link for the full story: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=317447&highlight=old+pomona+pics
My all time favorite is the is this car...was up forsale a few years ago(wish i had the money to grab it then!).
didn't know this one was still around, too cool. I think this car did some pretty good damage at the winternationals one year in b/ gs. Just have one question.., why the crap is it sitting outside in the snow!!!?
Hi,i own a 39 Champ coupe,and i'm looking for any whereabouts,for any fiberglass,particularly a frontend.Doors,would be great too,if they were even made.If you have any ideas,can you please email,or call me @ 704-589-1918.Thanks
hey "racingengines" i have a mould for 39/40 trunk inner and outer ,i have a spare made for my car that i would sell. i will make more if anyone is interested...heres some pics
heres one on the cover of a Lions Drag Scoop magazine
if anyone knows what magazine this article on the super stude was in or has a copy let me know. i'm still in need of body an trim parts any leads would help. thanks jamie
What parts are you looking for? I have owned close to a dozen 1939-40 Champions. Drove them for everyday transportation for years. Still have two.
I think the article on the Super Stude you are looking for is in the Oct 1967 issue of Hot Rod Magazine. It has a picture of a blue Vette on the cover.
Just bought the magazine today!!!!!!! Read the complete history on this Kool Ol' car! This IS the one!! Its in May 2013 Hot Rod Deluxe.. Slick
great thread; I think these Studes look every bit as good as a Willys done up gasser style; if not better. Ron Colson is a local guy here, I need to hit him up sometime to see if he has pics/info on his old car.
check out the 41 coupe in this recent thread...photo 2
typically Studes dont get much coverage in magazines..and if they do , they are 53-54 coupes(dont get me wrong .. i like them too) so its great to see some coverage in these two issues.
Randy's " Boss" Stude in Hot Rod magazine....awesome!!!!!
found a few more on the web
one more of the Colson Wood car
These pics are motivational!
Had a guy here on the HAMB photo shop some chrome steel wheels on my project car.
Tomorrow morning we fire up the grinder, and start cutting the Mustang II front out of the car to make room for a bar axle.
looks great, keep us posted on the progress!
There is a company now making forged polished aluminum wheels that look just like chrome steelies, got the look, without the weight!
