    I remember looking at that one for sale at the Nats North about 20 years or so ago. It was fenderless, has bobbed rear frame horns had a 305. Fiberglass body. It was also in either Street Roddder or Rod Action in the 80’s.

Looking forward to having some fun Apparently one of only two known survivors. So we’ll have to be mindful of retaining and preserving what’s there.

    Wow,that tub is unique! I hope you will do a thread on the build of this car.
  10. The Studebaker tub is a great looking car, their straight 8 cars were fast as well, in their day.. The first picture with s skirt and motorcycle tires makes it a custom sort-of. Thanks for the picts.

    My Dad owned this for many years. Tried to get him to put steelies and caps on it. it was a really nicely done car. Sold it to his buddy. Do not know if I ever seen it with a bra on it. maybe this is while his friend owned it. I heard the car might be forsale again.
