Too bad he didn't do it with a 53 coupe.

One of the nicer conversions I've seen. Good save on parts that were headed for oblivion.

Great execution of an idea. I would not have taken so much out of the length. Perhaps if it was sectioned a couple if inches it wouldn't be so "stubby"

I like it! The last profile picture makes me think of exaggerated air brush drawings sometime seen on T-shirts.

Yes, it does look like a George Trosley drawing! Gotta be a hard ride over any kind of rough road, though - or even the joints in a concrete Interstate.

Too bad he didn't do it with a 53 coupe.Since we have a removable roof, our '53 custom might be similar to what you were hoping for.

A 50 would look better, becouse of a longer front fender.

Can the Stubybaker owner not find the front script and hood badge?

(I like the car, BTW)

I posted some pictures of paintim's custom 53 on the Member's Studebakers forum here:

The Stubbybaker is a great piece of work. I assume many of you have seen pictures of the 1950 bulletnose Woody wagon that Steve Howard built some years ago. But have you seen his most recent project, a Sharknose Graham sedan made into a 4 door convertible? It is shown about one third of the way down this page - just search the page for Steve Howard. The car is red, really slammed to the ground when it is parked.

Thanks! Its the one shown above by another member's post yes? Red with ford grill? Certainly unique and well finished but not much like the Stubbybaker.

Certainly one head turner of a car. I like it, plus I know a thing or two about head turners.
