    Howdy my names Vyvian (yes i'm a guy, its a nickname). Presently i'm tryin' to get my 61 Studebaker Champ back on the road. goin' with a SBC/th350 cause its what i can get for cheap. Plans are in a few (like 5) years to break her down and turn her into a leadsled inspired rightious ride, including either an old caddy motor and tranny or an old hemi (331/354). here's apic,

    Welcome to the HAMB. Nice looking Stude. I always liked those. It would look great lowered. Sounds like you will have plenty of help around your place keeping it clean...:D I thought I had trouble trying to find enough time to work on things and all I got to worry about is a cat. Have fun with the Stude and good luck with your welding.
