    Way cool!
    That's the first GMC blower I have seen stuffed on a Stude engine.
    Is it a Caddy manifold modified to fit, or soemthing else?

  3. If you are referring to the slingshot...that's an olds motor.

    The Studebaker is getting a blown injected hemi.

    Top will be a tube frame one piece lift off carson style top. There was an article in Rod & Custom a few years ago I saved will details on how to build. This car gets better gas milage than anything I own, (22mpg) thanks to the tuned port & 5 speed.

  13. Saw this one for sale in Sunnyvale CA yesterday. I'd be tempted if someone hadn't put the cloth sunroof in it.

    There was an option available from Studebaker called a "Skytop".
    It was a cloth and steel insert similar to the one pictured.
    With Studebaker's, an owner can send off a request (and some $) to the Studebaker National Museum and get a copy of the original 'build sheet'.
    That way you could tell if the car was originally built with the 'Skytop' option.
    Hard to tell anything from these pic's.
    A top like this was also sold in the aftermarket from companies like J.C.Whitney, or Warshawsky's

  22. \'59 Lark011.jpg Here's a picture of the sunroof I took today. It looks kind of aftermarket to me but then I'm not really that familiar with Studebakers.
    Can anyone tell from the photo? It didn't occur to me to look at or get a shot of the headliner.

    The building is still there with the original sign still hanging. I have been trying to acquire the sign from the owners. So far no luck. Its on Michigan Ave. and 28th street.
