would that change be only in one car type say a champion. or in another car body. also did studebaker change anything on the block when they went to front sump oil pan. reason i am asking i have this crazy idea of using the front sump champ six motor in another car.i have a champ six motor but it has the rear sump oil pan. my motor need to be completely rebuilt. but if i can find the parts. ill eat my cake and be happy. of course i wont say in what car where the motor is going. some might scream hehe.

In those years ('47-'49), Studebaker made two series of cars; Champion and Commander (including Land Cruiser). Those are series names and do not relate to the numerous body styles available. In those years, all Champions were the 170 six and all Commanders were the larger (226 to 246) six. Either series could be a coupe, convertible, sedan.

yes that is what i am doing. a custom of sorts. i didnot want to go a dry sump system. and was hoping for a front sump pan. so now that i know there is such a critter. i will have to save my pennies for next year and buy another motor hehe.and then the new game will begin. this is what one gets for wanting something different hehe.

Yes, tell us about this custom! I love Stude powered custom cars, Brand X powered, well, there are some exceptions. (Sheba, Jeff Rice's Cheese wagon, etc...)
