Oh man, I hate it when this happens...:(

The motor was rebuilt and the owner forgot to put oil in it. Do not know what damage was done to the motor.

I wonder how many years ago the "oops, forgot the oil" happened. Considering how the Lark next to it has sunk in the dirt, I'd say it's been several years.

I like that rear bumper! I've never seen one like it, it appears that someone took a stock Stude. factory rear and cut it in half adding a center section from a "step" bumper to it! [^] Unless it was a special order, step type Stude option that I've never seen! :) The engine looks like a '62 transplant with oil bath air cleaner, may be WCFB 4 barrel. [:p]

Pretty neat! What's rarer Rich - a stock Stude truck rear bumper or a Lark-Hawk R-series harmonic balance???[}:)]

I'd rather have the wagon parked next to it I think. Beats me how you could go to the trouble and expense of rebuilding an engine then forget the oil [B)]

I had a buddy buy a new Txyxta 4x4 a few years back. He drove it off the dealer's lot and 10 miles down the road the engine turned into a glowing red lump. Prep guys didn't add the antifreeze when it came off the transporter.

Thanks Ron but I can't get it, too much to buy and transport it to OZ, let alone restore it. The guys in my club said "you're best to get a completed one" and since I have nowhere to keep one I'll stick to old advertisements and models.

That's a swapped engine (60&1/2 or newer based on looking at the valve covers)..and an alternator..
Also a swapped grille.
Still, could be a twin to Matthew's truck;)

I'm sure we all know plenty of horror stories on this topic. My favourite one is a true story. A bloke had been told to put in anti-freeze in his engine as the winter was just around the corner. He bought a litre of the green stuff and poured it into the hole in the rocker cover !!!
Myself and a friend advised him not to start the car. Fortunately (for him), he listened.
