    Jellybean - 1954 Studebaker Champion pictures

    A ton of work has been done on our 1954 Studebaker Champion and a ton more to do but it's taking shape as we go.
    Fuel injected LS3 crate engine, 5 speed manual transmission, 9 inch with 355 posi, Speedtech front and rear suspension capable of 1.03 in a 60 foot skid pad (comparable to a mid 200's Corvette), etc. No proper frames were available at the onset of this project so we designed, engineered and fabricated one from scratch. Hundreds of hour of metalwork and other details have been done and we are shooting for Spring 2018 as the completion date.
    Thanks for all the help the members on this forum have given, it is greatly appreciated
    I'll post more pictures soon, just need to figure out how to downsize them first :-)

    Wow...my car has frame and suspension envy right now. Looks awesome...more photos please! Any deviations planned for the body or is it going to remain relatively stock? Cheers, Junior

    The mechanicals and the interior will be all modern but the body will remain stock except for the bumpers. We're trimming them just slightly to hug the body a bit more.
    We're hoping to create this Studebaker the way it would be built today, if they were still in business.
