Considering this my summer project instead of the Model AA. But I can’t decide. I know as I’ve looked at everything I am falling in love with how solid and well designed this truck was. VIN # R11 480, Model # 2R11-22. It’s got some old custom stuff done to it including side pipes, power steering, aircon, and a V8. I can’t find any numbers on the engine except the casting #535976 and the internet thinks this seems to match a 1957 v8 7.5:1 compression engine they put into the Golden Hawk. Questions: I have a 460 ford and C6 but is it worth rebuilding the Studebaker engine? I’m not planning on spending much money on this. How does the original front axle ride with good shocks, grease, and bushings? Are there any bolt on wheels to get me away from split rims? Is there any way to keep the 3/4 ton lug look, but get some disks under it? I’m Any idea what kind of automatic transmission could be on this thing? General thoughts on if this is just too big or expensive a project to tackle? Sent from my iPhone using H.A.M.B.
