I drive it to car shows as a hobby and for fun. This car has always been a California car, born in So. California. .. I have done quite a bit of work to the car---so it's a repaired original car, not a restored car. .I have most of my parts/receipts.Should you want or need parts, There is NO Problem getting parts--it's actually has been VERY easy.
This car has the original 289 V8 engine. Engine number matches; I have the original build paper work. Has Power Steering, No A/C.
Here are some things that I have installed: upgraded it to a 4 barrel Edlebrock 1403 carb with electric choke---and later I installed richer fuel rods and an atomizing blast plate for a little extra crispness. I had the 3 speed automatic transmission bench rebuilt, and then I re-installed it. The distributor is modified to an electronic Mopar ignition, so it fires up very reliably. I installed new stainless steel exhaust. The oil pan has been removed, to install new gasket, and the rear main seal replaced. I have just acquired a set of stock Studebaker rims which will be installed with tires upon pick up of vehicle. This has Ford rims on it now that I borrowed from someone. Front timing cover gaskets and crankshaft seal has been replaced. Fuel Line replaced, done professionally. New brakes & master cylinder. Alternator re-wound/rebuilt by an electric motor shop. Freeze Plugs replaced with brass freeze plugs. New Motor mounts. New rear end pinion seal. New fuel pump. Replaced (1) rear axle. Replaced Heater Core. The accelerator linkage / Bell Crank was professionally reworked / Re-Fab'd. I did put a 1959 Grill on the car; I have the original if you want that of course. I also have the wheel well chrome trim, which I removed. I have had the rear spings out, for new bushings I had pressed in. An amazing thing is when I had the rear main cap off, there was no bearing wear or crank shaft rear most journal wear, testmony to quality machining back at the Studebaker factory.***Steering box will need a refreshing because of some steering play***
