Does this look like a 1947-52 Studebaker Starlite roof?

No doubt in my mind. The builder used what was available.

Sure does! What's all the rest of it? Was it ever in existence anywhere, does it still survive? Did it have to be narrowed any, to fit on, or was it just photoshop?

I have no idea if this car still exists somewhere, but it this picture has been around for a long time. I kind of like the car and would love to see it up close.

It doesn't look like the tires fit in the fenders (no air suspension lift then). Also, there is no room for the front wheels to turn. I liked the look until I looked more closely.

The back end of the pickup infront looks pretty new. The dumpster behind, seems to have plastic lids on it. I don't think they've been using those for too many decades? Maybe, it could have air suspension?

Six pages of it discussed on the H.A.M.B.

I believe the body is probably real, but there is no doubt in my mind the tires are photoshopped in. The edges and shadows are a giveaway.

I'm not crazy about it because it looks like a misfit combination of parts from different time periods, so it doesn't blend well together. The rear bumper really looks odd also.

I think the Stude roof looks good with this body! I can't tell if it has any door glass? I don't see any wing windows, I would definitely consider the lack of door glass a disadvantage, if that is the case? There is also quite a bit of room for improvement, with that rear bumper but it wouldn't be that hard to just get rid of it!
