Now, I like hot rods...
But this one actually makes me a bit sad....
I think the Stude dash is so pretty, and the Vette dash and wheel looks out of place.
And the wheels don't quite fit...
So close.... so close...

I kinda like that someone has interjected Studebaker into the world dominated by similar vintage Fords. At least it gets our marque out there and lets people know that there were more than Fords and Chevys in 1932. I like the original antique Studes too, but usually the only time you see those is trailered into an event. At least when one is done as a Street rod you might see it driving around. There are things I like and don't like about this one, but hopefully someone will snag it and have it out on the road.

The lines of the car have not been altered. A case of "I wouldnt have done it that way"?

You gotta give him credit for the sweat poured into this car. The door panels and the cut-down dash took a lot of time and effort! I don't know Jeff's specific objections, but IMHO a set of baby Moons on chrome reverse would go a long way toward tipping the scales toward "mo' right".

I like the car with a few exceptions;
1) I would want the side panels for the engine compartment.
2) I don't care for the wheels/tires, but they could be changed.
3) I would like it better if the front and rear seat upholstery matched.
I may bid anyway.

The 32 Studebaker St. Regis Broughham street rod I watched going through Silver auction in Arizona this past January was really nice with artillery wheels and the owner was trolling for $125.000.00. Don't think it sold. They are probably looking for something north of 80 grand on this one.

A STOCK 1932 Studebaker is a beautiful car.

Corvette dash in a 32 Stude! now that's wild. I love the oval headlights. That's a way cooler custom than a 32 Ford. I would have done a few things different too but that's a cool car. Don't be hatin' at least it's being driven.

I sort of like this car. It just dawned on me that I helped to build a 1932 Commander sedan into a street rod (not mine). We put an Oldsmobile V8 into it. That was in the late '70s -early '80s. The last that I knew, it was in a local junk yard.

I really like the style of headlights these cars have,


Now the bull horns.......:confused: seems more appropriate on a white caddy convert, with Boss Hoss driving,

Sure, but don't know if they kept it - A&W, Route 9D, Fishkill/Beacon/Wappingers Falls, NY (I know where the yard is, but I do not know which of the mailing addresses they use.).

I am the high bidder on the car with an hour to go (last that I looked). If I get outbid by a snipe bid, that is okay. Or, perhaps his reserve is unreal.

I am also high bidder on another vehicle with a sale end of Aug. 3.
