For years I've been seeing a home built trailer sitting along a back road in Balto. Co. and it had a familiar look to it! Ok, so with 'STUDEBAKER' on the tailgate there was no mystery about what it was made from!:D
Finally caught the owner home and next saturday, for $75, it's mine!
Ok, I admit, I WOULD rather have the whole truck, but it's a start!

Studebakers were made to drive! (Besides, they don't get lost as easy in the Wal-Mart parking lot!)

Charles,
Just yank the box off that F-100 & replace it with the Studebaker box. Yes you would have to enter it in the MODIFIED division for judging however! That would sure get folks talking tho.

Hmmm...
If I drop an R-1 in a Ford Model A, wouldn't that be Modified, Studebaker Powered?[:p]

Sure, but not as cool as a stretched Fiat Spyder with a 185 + turbo...
