This is a new members Studebaker project, he wanted me to post pics for him.
I like it!!!!!
ruined a good studie cab...............
Not quite my cup-o-tea, but I dig the craftsmanship.
hey was that other truck in the post in springfield, mo on tues???? i think i twisted my neck lookin at it. prety slick, me like um both. hr
Not trying to be a jerk, but I question the safety in some of those welds.
That other truck in the pic is my friends stude-sled it was a build between me and him and his dad. This was my first build from the ground up I cant blame any body for anything that might go wrong but myself everything you see has been done by me in the last 8 months. But I dont think there will be any issues.
Interesting build. How long is that bed?
Just curious- where's the rest of it? M-series fenders, decent side grilles & running boards are pretty easy to sell.
The bed is a ford, and I had added 4inches to the width and length. Sorry the cab was all I had to start with. Stude-sled and flamed58 helped me pull it out of a barn. The rest is history, well almost. My dad always told me it takes a real man to admit when he is wrong, and if you cant do that just lie.
I think it looks pretty good. Beats having the cab rotting in the barn. Besides, from what I can see, if you sold it in the future, someone could turn it back into a regular pick-up truck if they really wanted to. Its only metal!
What kinda drivetrain are you running? Give us some specs.
Why, do you have x-ray vision? They don't look off seam or undercut or cold lapped (not bad enough to be scary anyway). What do you base you fear off of?
Sweet, I dig it.
rodknocker DON'T need x-ray vision to see that some of those welds are questionable,
Just look at the one on the steering shaft ,I would think that one would be a LITTLE scary..............
