    Made from 1959-69. There was bigger 4.5 Liter version put in the Daimler Conquest limo, which is even rarer. A friend told me about this one. They are not easy to find but you may luck across one. Be prepared to fix corrosion in the water passages in the aluminum heads. They only make about 140hp stock.

    many many years ago this car was in north Texas and I went with my dad to see it. The man who owned it at the time is a very intelligent machinist who likes to keep to himself but he was more than willing to explain the car to me when I was a young boy. The interior was unfinished but the car itself was awesome. Being the unique vehicle it was it always stuck with me. I found a more recent ad for the car for sale in Illinois, it looks as if the interior has been done sometime in the last 20 years..not exactly the style I would have gone with but glad to see the car survives FEEB639D-A1E1-4E4A-A2B2-FE3140F73607.jpeg http://classiccardb.com/studebaker/400310-1953-studebaker-custom.html

    I think that is a different Stude. There was one around here that belonged to a member of Sage Brush chapter of the Studebaker Drivers Club.

    OT but what was the thinking behind the white spun glass that was used under the show cars back in the day? I never liked that look.

    I think it was to make them look "Dreamey" and lower. Possibly to let everyone know it was a "Show Car".

    Nads-that car is beautiful. Did you buy those wheels new? I didnt think they made them anymore.

    HARTMAN CORVAIR MYSTERY.jpg

    Here's a mysterious one. Built in the mid/late sixties, it was chopped, shiny red with Cragar's and a small block (eventually a big block up front). The details on this are spotty but it somehow survived...

    @loudbang from what I remember on the Stude the story was that the original owner was a young guy and his parents wouldn’t help him get a pickup to haul his motorcycle. So he proceeded to cut the back half of the Studebaker off so he could wheel his motorcycle in there. I think the owner I spoke to told me the car was not heavily customized and it wasn’t originally yellow. Also the fins were a later addition. One part of the story was at some time while the car was yellow, it had an awful green and yellow interior.

    Disclaimer-this is me trying to remember a couple hours conversation from 20 years ago, I cannot guarantee the accuracy of any of this lol


    P.S.- here’s an original photo that was from the for sale ad. Note the side exit exhaust and the louvered hood
