Hot Rods Saltshakers & Hot Rod Studebaker's

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by HOTRODPRIMER, Aug 26, 2020.

  1. I talked on the phone with a friend of mine that recently acquired a 1954 Studebaker Starline coupe, he said the car is pretty solid and is complete, less engine and transmission.

    The condition of the car reflects the car was stored inside and out of the weather, Mike is too old to even thing about building a car for Bonneville but he does like the look, minus the chopped top and he also likes the idea of a hot rod look also.

    I thought I would post here and let you guys post photo's of this era Studebaker that you like. HRP

    My 54 wagon (Conestoga) is in another thread, but since you're allowing "other Studes of this era", I thought I'd include mine.
    This one is slowly turning into a 50-60's era hot rod. I've got a 299 inch, lots of money spent engine almost done for it. Quick change in the back, 4 wheel disc brakes, but otherwise, looking sorta old.

    This one will be my daily driver, one of these days. No real "era" build wise. Stude powered. 4 wheel disc brakes, 4 sped. auto trans. Almost done.

    There's not a swoopier coupe made than one of them. Loved them since the first one I saw in Hot Rod, a Bonneville racer. For a while I thought they came stock with a Hemi, but then I heard about Studillacs!

    I missed out on a 53 a few years ago, just never could seal the deal. Made me sick when the guy sold it, I offered as much as I could but still came up short.

    That body style looks like it screaming without moving. Styling so far ahead of it's time.

    This model Studebaker looks like it's fast sitting still but keep it low.

    The number on the car in the very first photo is interesting. That number has been used on a roadster for many years that runs at SCTA events. It dates back to a group of men who started their car club in May of 1954, hence the number 5 54 That roadster is currently running each year. I would be curious as to how that number is on the Studebaker. The Studebaker appears to have a roll cage but I doubt that it has ran in an SCTA event with that number.

    This is the final version of our Studebaker. I do not care for the look but looks do not make for safety at high speed. A twin turbo charged big block makes you do some strange things.

    . The #974 Studebaker had a record of 249 mph with the small block blower engine. That record was broken by Danny Burrows driving George Poteet's "Blowfish". I believe that record is now over 300 mph.
