Is that a test fit or the final install? I would think it would be much easier to install the firewall items with the engine out.

Sure looks good in there, though![8D]

Final install (hopefully).

There really aren't many firewall items. the defroster and heater control valve openings get aluminum block off plates from the inside (real hot rods don't have heaters [^]). The "boot" on the steering column installs from inside the car. The wiper motor, speedometer cable, e-brake cable, oil pressure line, a few wires. That's about it.

There were no "extra" holes in this firewall or fender aprons, but I welded up 20+ unused holes.

Thanks, Kevin. Actually, I steal most of my GOOD ideas from more creative folks, magazines, etc. I'm not above plagiarism. [:0] :D

Perfect! Just enough contrasting colors and metals. I always wonder why more people don't polish that timeing cover.

Beautiful work. It only takes 110% effort to make it look the best. I am envious.

What a different and striking color combination. All I can say is WOW! The exhaust manifolds would look sweet Jet Hot coated satiny silver with the finned aluminum and that timing cover.

Could you tell me a little more about that motor. What's in it, any tricks, and what kind of carbs you will be using? I love it. I am getting a full flow 289 this afternoon and want to run it in a 23 Ford Touring body.

It is a 1955 President 259. Appears to have very few miles on a complete rebuild. No tricks and no internal speed parts that I am aware of. It's all show and no go :) (actually, it should "go" just fine with the stock 4.56/1 rear end and the T85 OD trans).

The carbs are stock Stromberg WW 2 barrels that were used by Studebaker through '55 or so.

Good luck on your project! It sounds very nifty. The less common V8's like these Studebakers are finding themselves into more and more hot rods. Pretty cool [8D].

If you wish keep build photos and send them to Good Guys...."Good Guys Gazette" and to NSRA...National Street Rod Association....."Street Scene" Both organizations are doing a great job of PHOTOS OF STUDES. in their monthly magazines. Each magazine has over 200 pages and over 200 photos each and every month. Build articles, ads of course, both excellent mags. They have shows around the country. Hot Rod magazine would probably be interested too.
