Hi and welcome; glad to hear you are getting a Stude. truck, you will get great enjoyment out of becoming a member of SDC if you have not yet. Our monthly newsletter Turning Wheels has became quite a Magazine, just gets better every month! A 340, 383 what have you would fit real nicely into a R series '49-'53 pickup.

Just for your info, your Dads Hawk must have been a '57-'59 if it was called a Silver Hawk. Or if it really was a '62 Hawk, it would be a Gran Turismo Hawk (or GT as we call them) with the squared off rear roof line like a '58-'60 T Bird.

Glad to have you with us! [^]

Welcome to the club. Check this out that was posted on a different thread.

http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=13848

Someone also posted a picture of a Studebaker truck with a Mopar engine, but I can't seem to find the thread it was on. Maybe someone can help me.

Fellas, can someone explain to me how Ted Harbit kicks Mopar butt all the time? It wouldn't be that that lil' ol' stude motor of his is any good would it?

Mopar, look around before you make a hybrid out of your truck. If you truely want to learn about Studebakers, what better way than to trick out a Stude motor? Believe me, that little 289 can do some AMAZING things!:D Most importantly have fun, enjoy one of the friendliest car clubs around, and welcome to the sickness... I mean CLUB[:0], yeah, club is what I meant.[:I][:o)]

1 Studebaker with MOPAR drive train = Studebaker Club and MOPAR Club with 1 vehicle. The best of 2 worlds.
