I see what IMBd is, but I still do not know what the abbreviation ("acronym") stands for (even after going to their "help" site).

I ended up watching the program. It was interesting that the family's name was Studebaker. They did what they could, with a short period of time, but it looks like the truck could use a little more TLC in the future. Still, a good episode with the Studebaker brand, put into the limelight.

I just finished watching it also. I don't think they'll do another Studebaker anytime soon. I usually like the show, (for the episodes I've seen anyway), but there sure was a lot of griping about this and that relating to the Studebaker. How could the truck owner not have all the parts he needed for the transplant of a V8 replacing the Scotsman's 6 cyl? He certainly should have had more contacts ready for the needed parts. Those pieces are dime a dozen for most Stude folks. The workers were rigging and fabbing parts which should have been easily obtainable.
Anyhoo... the truck got done and appears to be driveable. He's happy and I'm happy for him. I'm not sure it did the Studebaker brand much good. Some exposure, but not without a lot of complaining.

I was impressed that they tackled the rebuild of the R1 without hesitation. And the Joe said he had done one or more in the past.

All of that custom fabrication was totally unnecessary, all they had to do is look up the Truck V8 Engine, Clutch and Trans. Parts in the Parts Catalog, source them from Club Members and Studebaker Vendors BEFORE the show.
Then show the world how easy it IS when you know what you are doing! ;)

This is exactly how it is done on the better Velocity Shows with a real shop and lots of Chevy, Ford or MoPar Parts sources.

It was scary to watch them fighting it the whole way and saying how hard it would be to find the Parts they needed and then made do without them.
Like cutting up a good floor when the engine was in the wrong location to fit the clutch linkage and Trans. floor shifter.

Then installing an R1 Avanti Engine in a 6 Cyl. '59 Scotsman Truck without Dialing in the Clutch Housing. :(
And they built it with a 3 Speed Manual with NO Overdrive!

Apparently, Scott Studebaker was not connected with the SDC at all.

It all came out OK (for now) but could have been SO much better.
