Under going minor changes..
Nice, here's the latest shot of mine,
I must agree.
But i might also add that to "average joe" and his un-trained eye, is easier to find "kool" into a 50 ford or model A, and more difficult to find the same vibe into a more obscure and less known model.....nothin wrong w/ it i guess.
But i hate when people say theyre ugly just cause they dont get it.
Anyways, found this. I could easily give a nut to own it. As bad ass as a wagon can be.
The slide-away rear roof portion is pure genius, and i find the tail light placement and design totally awesome too. Imma fan. I would only add juice to this, wouldnt even shave an handle. so perfect as it is.
Here is my newest "purchase." 1965 Studebaker Commander - 283"Thunderbolt" & BW AT.
Damn I forgot about thsoe, someplace around here I got an old magazine ad for the stude with the retracting roof. I'll have to look for it.
there was one of those for sale up here not too long ago for $1500 I believe. It needed a ton of work. Last I saw, he was parting it out and trying to get what he could before sending it to the scrapper. Body looked decent for its age. Had been stored under cover, but in the elements. He was just asking far too much for his "extremely rare" car in my opinion.
Actually I followed one up the interstate for about 20 miles last summer, it was that funny gold color that they painted them.
Ole red, that will be a very sweet cruiser.
But i still wish i owned that damn wagon....didnt get away with a good sleep.
They are awesome cars! If I had the room to get one of them as well, I would! If I did though, I would probably be told to live in the wagon.
Thanks! I used some rubbing compound on a corner last night and she shined right up. Hopefully I get home somewhat early on Sunday so that I can wash it and start buffing out the old paint.
Anybody got ideas for a cool taillight swap for a '62/'63 Lark?
Ya' either get it, or you don't...
Here's mine! Its probably not what most people would call "cool" but I like it! Ha ha.
I give it two thumbs up Boss
Pulled my M-5 out of the weeds last weekend... Photo Shop guys on the is forum helped get a motivational pic... hoping mine will look pretty close to this in the near future...

Saw this photo on the Internet and wondered how the Studebaker guys felt about the headlights on this one .....
