    Thanks Studebakerdave! My goal is to build mine just like yours but in white satin... Pm me sometime with details of your build. How'd you get it that low? Where did you scrap that front bumper from? What did you do for tail lights? Thank you!

    Cool -- what color is yours? 47-52s are pretty much my favorite Studes...

    Fortunately, you're too far away, I looked in the classifieds on HAMB and didn't see the ad. Sold it already?

    These are some pictures of my 32 Studebaker Rockne coupe. It has a cool history behind it and won the 1st Street Rod Nationals in Peoria when my father owned it and we won with it again at the 40th Nationals in Louisville after building the car again after my father passed away.

    I've got to fess up that I have a Studebaker problem I guess..I occasionally get the Studebaker magazine" Turning Wheels" it is one of the best ones out there..The HAMB is the only thing I really devote time to..Hey Guys..
    1948 Business Coupe, stock, runs good, looks ugly
    1951 Starlight coupe rough and rusty
    1953 Coupe sedan, recent Maxilite smoothing, my driver
    1957 Stationwagon Provincial V/8 AC, gas tank is swiss cheese
    1971 Avanti II, beautiful daily driver
    traded my 63 Wagonaire for a 29 Model A and a 34 Pickup..recently found a later 289 with an old Edelbrock dress up kit and a McCullough Supercharger that I hope to put in my 53..That should start a chain reaction to put the 259 out of the 53 into the 48..
    Right before they put the straight jacket on me and check me into the cuckoos nest I hope to have a 41 Coupe, an early 50s truck and a Gran Turismo..

    Heres my 61 lark wagon. Its a little on the rusty side, the rockers are eat up. Some of you make have seen it in the long roof thread. Eventually it will get air ride, I have a sbc 350 about ready to be put in. The original motor was locked up. It was a six cylinder which was the 170 I think. Correct me if I am wrong. Has anyone ordered from studebaker international? Just curious to see before I go buying anything.

    Dont get me wrong I really like studebakers but some of them are just ugly. Heck I think my car is ugly but I see it as having potential. I hope once mine is done it will get some attention. I like when people are able to take a car you wouldnt consider building and make it cool.

    It should bolt in with some of the adaptor brackets out there, but most here wouldn't consider it H.A.M.B. friendly. :confused:

    I have seen LS motors in a number of Studebakers, including mine. My thought is most H.A.M.B.ers don't care what other people think ;-). If it is a concern, just don't open the hood. My personal opinion is you can't beat an LS type motor if you are going to drive the car a lot. If you get the SBC frame mounts for the 65-66 cars there are any number of adapters that will enable you to bolt an LS to those.
