This is a Custom 53 Studebaker that was originally built by a well crafted gentlemen out of Richmond Virginia, very talented builder and the car shows it. This was featured in April 2012 in Rod & Custom under readers rods.Here is what I know, started out with parts from a Studebaker Champion and built a custom chassis out of 2x3" tubing. This is very close to a race car chassis . This is registered as a Studebaker Convertible but built more like a Roadster Pickup.The back of it looks like he used a Tailgate from a Studebaker as it has the stamping. The doors do not open like a Model T . This is unique vehicle and you won't find another one. I am 6'2" and a little tall for driving it.1958 SBC 283 bored out to a 301Edlebrock Carb & Edlebrock Scorpion IntakeWilwood Disc Brakes All Four CornersCoilovers All Four CornersWide Five Hubs & WheelsFrankland Quick Change RearMickey Thompson TiresWoodward Rack & PinionAluminum Radiator & Electric FanPlease have your finances in order before biddingAny questions please let me know..

Just added nine more pics of the car, wasn't too bad out so I pulled it out of the garage and cleaned it up. The last pic is of two extra sets of gears that come with it. This car also has a Detroit Locker in the rear. It has a few blemishes in the paint from driving it but still looks great. The paint is House of Colors Hot Rod Black Pearl.
