We started on this running gear swap last July and last night I finally got to drive it again. Here it is in the shop getting aligned. It runs just as good as it looks and it IS fast.

A few more loose ends to tie up and it will be back in my driveway. I ALMOST got it for Christmas.

The differential is from a Malibu. I expect to be driving it to the museum on the 7th. You can check it out then. The fuel tank is hand built and should hold 24.9 gallons.

BTW, the stock 16" rim on the spare got swapped out as the Studebaker rim no longer fits the truck. Anyone want it?
