I see Calvin has his '59 'Lil wagon with the big engine' up on Ebay.......

The engine/trans in this wagon are out of his suburban..
(the one that dragged my yellow pos to SB in '02)
A ton of fun to tool around in, and quick enough to really get your attention
(If you have guts enough to keep your foot in it[}:)])..
I helped Calvin a teeny bit doing this swap and it was very nicely done.
Won't take much at all to finish this toy.

Just after the engine swap Calvin and I were running side by side on I-95 to get a speedometer check. At 70 MPH he punched it, lit-up the back tires, and quickly left me behind. This wagon is a pure Hot Rod, and if I had room to store it, I'd buy it.

I agree with ChampTrucking...sigh...

My wife has even told me that the next classic we buy HAS to be a wagon...and that is fine with me as long as it is a Studebaker...another sigh...

clutch pedal hooked to nothing but a spring just to mess with people (snicker) as the shifter handle looks like a 4 speed handle, fly into Columbia or Greenville/Spartanburg and drive it home! It will leave a mile wide smile on your face just driving it!!

I sincerely hope the bidding goes higher than I can afford on this, so that I don't have to regret not bidding on it. That's assuming I don't say "**** it" and get up in the middle of the night and toss in a bid.

Hmmmmm, bidding is more than I paid for my last wagon (but this one has about 400 more HP and springs ;)).

I always have liked that wagon, from when I first saw it. [8D]

You can store it here. Or, buy it and store the Studillac here, whatever makes sense to ya. :D
