Wow-- looking good. Different.
Should be a neat build.
If anyone gives you grief about the bellybutton mill, just tell them, afaik, it's a McKinnon(heavy-duty chev mill). Stude of canada used them in '65 n '66. Still would prefer to see a stude mill 'twixt those rails, but... . Hope you bring it to the Stude nats @ South Bend in ~ 5 yrs, & other stude meets. Lots of folks will be happy to see it. Also a good idea to join Studebakers Drivers Club. Glad you saved it from the usually fatal rr-disease. I never find neat stuff like that, much less at decent price(s). Good on you.
Love the Stude builds! Subscribed. Carry on!
Coming along nicely and a unique body style. Can't remember when I last saw one, well never down here.
I see that you are redoing the wood and only have the transmission tube. Given the drive train and suspension upgrade could I suggest boxing the frame and adding a centre K-Member as there will be nothing to prevent torsional twisting. You will thank yourself later after driving it for a while.
Great looking and unusual car!
Love it! Great project. I'll continue to watch.
Awesome score on those seats and I love the clock!
Fantastic. Love the lines of the car, rounded deck lid corners, etc. Sort of a long Coupe/Victoria style. Full back seat?
If someone was building that in the early/mid 70's it would have gotten the resto rod treatment.
I'm looking at buying a '29 Stude. Where are you finding parts. Most of what I find online start at around 1933 and up. Also did you refinish your tag yourself?
It's nice to see something other than a ford.
I bought the tank and now it's painted. I just need to build my 29 Stude around it!
All I saw was Studebaker and had tears in my eyes. looks great, was wondering where the study guys are!
Subscribed, I love the look of the Dictator coupe!
Damn, man! This is the first time I've seen this thread. Your Stude is totally cool. Can't wait to see it cruising around. Planning to chop the top?
Nice project, like the looks for the car. Bob
Subscribed. Love the one off projects (non Ford) just as much as the Ford.
Good color choice
Who powder coated your frame? Are they reasonable?
I love this buggy! Havent seen one like that before. Refreshing
I'm still not as far along as you with my '29 Stude, but I'm starting to get all of my pieces together to see how they look as a complete car. The body I have is from a 4-door 1924 Studebaker Light Six and the grill shell/radiator is from a '27 Stude. I have a decent cowl from another 24 Light Six that I will eventually install. For now, the rusted out one makes it easier to make the needed wood pieces for the firewall and floorboards and is still good enough to take needed measurements off of. The overall plan is to make the car into a roadster pickup.
I love it! When will it hit the streets?
Here's an update on my '29 Stude (with 29StudeDude's gas tank). Got the thing rolling and looking like a car! Note: that rusty cowl will be replaced:
The dark yellow resembles Caterpillar yellow.Was that the intention?Btw us NE New England?
OK!thanks! Looks like a cool ride, seems to be going well!
nice build off the beaten track
Dude, you really struck gold when you found this one! Studebaker had built some really classy cars pre-WW2.
I admire your courage, to get the major components powder coated as you go, rather than "completing" the build, then tearing it down to facilitate this.
