The Speedster finally got its first exterior cleanup and is going to make its first public appearance in the 4th of July parade.

Still a couple issues to resolve but this is a milestone for the SFH.

Oh, that's gorgeous!! A Lemon-Lime '55 was the very first Studebaker I ever saw in person. It left an indelible mark in my memory. I love this car.

and I like your front plate, too. Looks great.

While not a huge fan of the 55 front treatment, the speedster just looks right with that setup. Beautiful car.

Very nice, glad you didn't put the out of place fog lights on the front!

lookin' good! :!:

agree with the above - front bumper area looks great.:)

Thank you all for your comments. I didn't get fog lights with the car. I have never liked them anyway as I think they make the front end look overloaded.
I spent some time looking at how others had done their front ends and decided I like the clean look you get without the bumper guards.
The parade was fun, with lots of positive comments from the onlookers. If I hadn't had the sign on the front very few would have known what it was.

When you get to a car show, Park it next to a 55 Chevrolet.

Beautiful car.. Seeing another one finished is motivation to keep going on mine. I don't have the fog lights and have cringed at the asking price for them on e-bay and at swap meets. Come to think of it I removed them from my dad's '55 4 door President for some reason too. You may have sealed the deal... no fogs here either.
