Projects Studebaker vs Gardner I just don't know

Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by Useless, Aug 24, 2017.

  1. Trying to figure out what this is, I love the look and want to chop it 2-3 inches. They did a good job cutting out the front doors, got a few parts with it also like windshield, but need much more. But what is it a Studebaker vs Gardner I just don't know.

    Starting to remind me of the old style short track modifieds body. Looks like this one could be a lot of fun.

  10. What do you think. Not perfect rendering but you get the idea.

    I don't believe Studebaker ever did suicide front doors on coupes,
    RoCknes or Erskine either.

  12. This was a 4 door sedan, the front doors have been removed and only the rear doors are on the car now.

  13. The ends of the belt lines say Studebaker.

  14. I agree the front is the same but the rear is like the Studebaker.

    Sorry - that one's not actually mine! I found that picture a few months ago while doing some research for my 29 President. My car doesn't have a body (the previous owner kept it because HE needed a 29 President body). I looked at a lot of options, including a shortened '31 that was listed for sale here on the HAMB (I'll try to find that pic too). I finally settled on a 23/24 Studebaker Light 6 phaeton body that's coming to me next week from Montana. I plan on building a roadster pickup with it.

    I like this car a lot, I don't usually like 4 doors turned into 2 doors but this little car has a lot going for it.
