My son and I have been interested in building a TROG car for some time now and so we are now putting together a plan of what we want to do. Our goal is to have it ready for 2016. We have a '30 Model A coupe body that someone cut the roof off of in the 50s, and we have a Model A frame and lots of early Ford axles, brakes, spindles, etc. We have both been interested in an old speed shop that operated in South Bend, In. called Salay's Speed Shop. So we have decided to be different and make our TROG car powered by a Studebaker V-8 adapted up to early Ford drive-line and call it the "Salay Special." It is our understanding that we will be within the rules since it says the engine needs to be no newer than 1953 and Studebaker made V-8s starting in 51 or 52. I have been on a search for Studebaker parts and have been shocked to find out the cost of some, especially speed parts! I have located a '53 V-8 engine and an early Stude to Ford adapter, but still need a better camshaft and intake. Maybe even a better distributor. (PM me if you can help with that) But what I need most right now is any info I can get from HAMB guys that have experience with Studebaker as I have none, zero, nada! I have been told that some early Cadillac parts will fit Studebaker. Anyone know if that is true? Also concerned about flywheel and clutch parts when adapting a Studebaker to a Ford trans. Hoping to make some connections on here for a mentor for this project... Will post some pictures when I have something of interest to show! Right now all I have is a picture of a tee shirt some one made from copying an original Salays Speed Shop decal.
