    Yes, It was the real wagon wheel construction on the Studebaker wheelbarrow that made the difference. if you could find one of those original wheels you could trade if for any other Studebaker you want. :)
    The cool thing is that when John went home the company grew and by the time it closed they had plans for building airplanes. Wagons to planes in one lifetime!

    I like the "best side" with the spare tire. That is killer.

    Scrape off the ugly and try to improve the style a little.

    Hey, isn’t that grille section fiberglass? Or am I thinking of a different year?

    Here are some rougher ones who's time has come to a end. They are headed to the crusher in the next week or so. I did get some N.O.S. metal and some used out of a trailer that has been there for decades. 241831992_371893431084198_2280079837438700166_n.jpg 242019429_848331779405088_4784781395911973062_n (1).jpg studebaker build 003.JPG 241784656_394694645545601_8353856392390670388_n.jpg 241831992_371893431084198_2280079837438700166_n.jpg 242019429_848331779405088_4784781395911973062_n (1).jpg
