Just a tad expensive, and only a couple of years off on the application. Pretty good, actually, compared to some of the eBay listings I have seen!

Are they actually worth that much?

If that sells for that price, it will quickly be followed by my complete, running, rebuilt R2 engine. I will then take that money and go into business buying decent supercharged Studes, selling the SC parts and scrapping the rest.

Hate to break up SC cars, but if those are the prices I couldn't afford not to!

Short answer to Dylan: NOT EVEN.:p

Actually JP is exaggerating. I just checked, and it's only $6195 plus $56.72 shipping. That's MUCH better.

I promise, if I can get that much for mine, I'll throw in the shipping for free;)

Whew! Thats good! I'm a huge fan of 57's (More so than SN-60s in some ways), and I was getting nervous!

Wow! You R-2 owner/fans are too rich for me. :)

Makes me glad I have just a R-1.

That's a vintage kit with a modern Novi supercharger kit pricetag.

Maybe $7K for a Paxton Novi 2000 for a Dodge Viper but the Paxton Novi 1000 for Mustang 5.0L (which I considered) for my Avanti is about $2300.

Instead I'm going with a Myer's rebuilt Paxton Sn-60 with custom helix impeller and NASA spec quality ball bearings for under a $1000 and Mike says it will boost in the 10 psi range.

Wouldn't that Paxton Novi just be a bolt-on for a Stude...they're all Ford 289's aren't they?

This blower set up is different than the ones used on the Golden Hawks. This is a McCulloch engineered kit not production Studebaker.
John McCussak(sp) an LA area dealer used these kits on several 55 Speedsters.
Still too rich for me.

As far as the new, new stuff I'm not sure. However, in two instances here where we had blowers malfunction, both on my Lark and on the Avanti, they received substitutes until the old blowers were rebuilt. The Lark got a spare Paxton SN-60 from a vendor at the show here in Morris, IL where the blower came from a kit for a flathead Ford. The Avanti got an SN-89, which came from a kit that was supposed to go to a Chevy. Due to the universal design in both instances of this style of blower, where the bolt holes go around the circumference of the housing, it was just a simple matter of unbolting the split housing and reclocking the blower unti the outlet pointed in the direction it needed to be pointed in for both applications to work. In the case of the kit above, it shouldn't be hard to make it work on a Studebaker application, as long as the outlet can be unbolted and repositioned in the correct orientation.

I had to reclock my SN-60 on my CloneLark because it came off an Avanti, very easy to do.

You're right, that sure does appear to be a '55 blower kit. If it were more reasonably priced, I'd be in a world of hurt right now... as it is I just can't justify playing as much for a supercharger as one would for a whole nother good used car...

I hope you don't think I was serious with my question!

Well......yeah, what you didn't think just because it has or doesn't have Studebaker written all over it doesn't mean that it was just specific to Studebaker. Alot of the Brand X and Studebaker stuff is fairly universal in application when it comes to dealing with Studebaker engines. If you look at my signature pics of the '55 with the turbos, you know that I take this matter rather seriously as to whether it could possibly fit or not :cool:.

And no, I know they're not Ford 289's, although the Paxton SN60's could be reasonably adapted to fit the Studebaker 289's as the mounting brackets are the same.

In all humor, just don't try and fit the Paxton to those bloody GM 305 R3 engines, you'll have to get out the sledgehammers to pound the fender out!! :p:p:o

Looking at those prices I did really well with the N60 set up I bought off Lionel Stone about 18 months ago. SC, brackets, Avanti headers, sump, water pump, air filter, pulleys, the lot - with shipping and Australian exchange rate for well under that.

By the way - Hi Lionel, hope you are doing well.

Hey Everyone,
If your interested in going late model with a Novi to Studebaker I have the answer. My brother made this blower mounting plate using Dave Bloombergs plate as a model. http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p56/dieselguy2006/Custom%20Blower%20Plates%20by%20Bill/BlowerPlate5.jpg It mounts a Novi up real nice. The pulleys are common and easy to find and not bad in price. If you go with 2" 8mm belt for high performance the pulleys (4) will run about $350. The plates are selling for $600 plus shipping. Made from the best by the best. They'll even put your custom logo on the top to the plate no charge. It looks like this when assembled. http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p56/dieselguy2006/Dave%20Bloomberg%20Blower%20Plate/Blowerfrontplate05.jpg http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p56/dieselguy2006/Dave%20Bloomberg%20Blower%20Plate/Blowerfrontplate07.jpg Obviously you could go with a serpentine belt and save on pulleys ect. All proceeds from the sale of these plates go to help finance the Bucket List Dream Project to help get the Burke Bros Avanti back to Bonneville and fill my bucket list item # 4.
