Yup, but it sold. Snooze ya lose! Here it is.
Ya those are pretty nice, not as nice as my 53 but what is/
What was he asking if you don't mind?
It doesn't look bad at all.
Next time you have to snap it up faster there guy, and keep on trying. This is a great looking 52, wish it were mine.
i am a newbie but heres mine
That's going to be sweet! What a profile.
thanks i hope to have it back on the road by next summer
Yea , We are all dreamers here. I hope my '26 Chevy roadster is a roller by June. It could happen. It'll have some Stude parts. T 86 OD tranny, OD switches, 4.27 Dana rear end gear set, and maybe '55 Speedster dash and gauge set. Avoiding everything Ford.
Here's our '50 Champion. Bone stock for now, but the future calls for dual exhausts, multiple carburetors, more compression, a hotter cam, some wide whites, hubcaps, lowering blocks, and a T5. Not necessarily in that order!
So speaking of 52 hardtops here's mine. It's come along way since my avatar picture.
That's awesome mate, love it.
Here's mine, get used for work too
Anymore pictures of your son's '54?
Shes gone thru a few changes!
I like it!
Here's mine. '46 M5 with AMC 258 six for power. Had it since I was 13. Still not done yet and I just turned 36, but been on the road for 15 years now!
I have tons of pictures of it but I have to scan them because I didn't have a digital camera when we built it. I'll see if I can do that.
Here is my future ramp truck. 1948 Studebaker M16 1 1/2 ton with steel bed.
Going to be painted Orange and Blue to match the Bonneville Lark race car.
Going to use the ramp truck to haul around my new project. This will serve as the foundation for my re-creation of my first car. 1959 Studebaker Silver Hawk.
Here's a shot of the car in 1968 before it met it's sad demise.
Look for build thread soon.
Forgot to mention the car came with a 1957 Golden Hawk front clip with a custom louvered hood. I plan to build a fiberglass hood scoop to hide the new induction system planned for it.
This is the Dutch Treat Racing lark that I will be hauling around to El Mirage and Bonneville if all goes well.
It will be Orange and Blue the teams colors.
damn nice , gonna be bad ass looking......
All a work in process.
The blue 54 will be a 50's/60's hot rod when done.
The white 60 is just a hot rod.
Have a second 54 that will be my daily driver hopefully by this summer.
I really like the '54 Conestoga. It is just right now.
'54 Conestoga is in Kansas City Craigslist as of Friday
Captmullette, Crazy, full blown race car w/ skirts...Love it!
The latest object of my affection...."The Black Car"
A 1 year build that has dragged out to three (because of work...yada yada yada).....
But... It's getting closer to reality.... Engine is almost ready to put in!
Too bad they think a '53 Stude is 'too new' here
Good article on Bangshift on the super rare R-4 engine. Not mine no connection just liked it.
I think you've read the 'rules wrong'...no one condemns a '53 Studey here...unless you have the latest F.I. engine in it...in that case, keep the hood closed...!!!
I like it...
55' altered wheelbase champion. (Wheels coming soon, thanks Ruben Duran for the photoshop.)
The 53/4 Car has its fans and critics like always. Its the uninformed newcomers who would say its not welcome because it is unlike anything else from the era.. I can't tell you how many times people ask me what year my "Camaro" is when I drive it.
