    My 50 Champion. My dad bought it 1969 for $50. I drove it to high school.



    1954 Pickup belonged to my wife's grandfather.

    i whole heartedly agree.
  6. customizer - wow. nice car-nice touch with the flames and pea shooters

    deepnhock - yeah, the pedals and the steering column seem loose so I'll have to investigate. has a better chevy radiator and relatively few miles since a rebuild - the original owners did just what you said (overheated it and cracked the head). the p.o. fixed it, so we'll see. another hamber is hooking me up with a spare running motor and trans same year which might come in handy. i don't plan on hauling heavy things with it, so should be ok. It seems like folks tend to keep studebakers.

    I just joined this site so I might as well get this part over with. She a 53 Studebaker coupe with no floor or rocker panels or front end. Could a guy start with much less? Didn't want to cut a perfect classic and this one was on it way to the scrape heap. $700 and a clean title. Where does one start?:eek:

  8. ^^^^^ Perhaps not much of it there, but you've started with a pretty decent body. Going to try to find a factory frame or start from scratch? Being connected with a Stude club should
    be a big help.

    Good luck and welcome to the HAMB. (BTW, great shot for your avatar)

    This followed us home on saturday morning:
  13. You can buy the entire front end in glass these days. wither in one piece or as parts like fenders hood and chin.

    For the old starlight you can actually buy the entire body in glass one piece at a time. but you have an excellent looking tub. and if you want you don't have to buoild t as a step down coupe you can channel it without feeling like you are hurting anything, as if that makes any difference.

    I think that there was a commander chassis on here a year or so back if you do a search of the classifieds for Stude frame or the like you may still be in cheap.

    Good luck
  14. ZZ Iron would have every Stude on the planet if we didn't watch him. Hell I've started sleeping in the garage since we met.

    That St. Regis has some really unique proportions! Is the drivers side door shorter than the passenger side?

    There are two on eBay right now which is odd because you never see them.

    Seems I've missed this thread, so I'll post up a shot of my '46 M5. I really need to get it built before the next LSRU.

    Here's my project that I will probably never get to. I probably should trade it for something I need worse, but it is so darned streamlined ...

  22. These are pictures of my old stude. The first set is back in the 60's before I owned it.

    This is what it looked like when I had it. (disreguard the date stamp. scanner was broke, took a picture of a picture)





    If anyone has information of this car back when it was yellow, I would appreciate it. It was in the Der Kobbler's car club in Jamestown NY then.

    I have pics of a chopped bullet nose w/ a red zodyac carson style top but cant seem to find'em.
    Car is way cool, im fairly sure it was a work in progress as it aws a very shitty shade of flat black. thought someone here might know it.

    Anyways. Whats the story on this? Its a Packard, but the windshield, roof, fins, and the overall profile really looks like that of a ?57/59?Hawk.
    where the 2 manufactureres sharing platforms? I also see a resemblance w/ AMC in the mid 60s models.

    Yep, Packard & Studebaker merged in '54 in an attempt to stay afloat. That obviously didn't work out too well in the long run.
  28. a few shots from the drive to work this morning...

    fun little truck - now sorting some of the electrical or lack thereof.

    drives ok, seems to get better when I get out the wrenches and give it some love.

    interior next

    Anybody narrowed one of those Champ beds to actually line up with the cab? I'd love to see a picture of one done to see how it turned out.
