So, it doesn't need a windshield to be considered "complete"?

The lack of a windshield and other glass was part of the Flow-Thru ventilation system. Very 'State-of-the-Art' at the time...:D.

Answer: I thought everybody threw their dead bodies in the woods...

Restoring my grandfather's '60 Lark, one rusted bolt at a time.

6 or 7 years work and it might start to look like Dillo's truck! First step would be to find a body and a frame for it!

"Flow thru ventilation" - further evidence that Studebaker was ahead of it's time. As a bonus - no need for glass coverage on your insurance - that must be why it never caught on - the big insurance companies conspired to squash it!

That ventilation system had to have an adverse effect on gas mileage.[B)] I suppose there'd be SOME offset in the money you'd save on wiper blades.[^]

"No windshield - I'm cool with that!"[:0]

Kind of amazing that it would be a full 10 years after the last 2Rs were built before they'd match the "Full-Flo" ventilation with a Full-Flo oil filtration setup![8]

I bet if you got within ten feet of that monster you'd notice a few other things not "complete"

Thanks for the comments guys,you are great comedians(G)
StudeBobs comment on saving wiper blade cost had me spraying my puter screen again.
