This '34 was spotted in a wrecking yard in Kelowna BC Canada.
I told my friend to grab it up before they crush it.
I don't think I could walk away from that without asking if it was for sale or not.

Has dual sidemount spares and what looks like a rather long hood. President straight 8 maybe?

One heckuva project. Or a very poor parts car. :D

Matt, I'd say it is a six based upon the intake/exhaust manifold where the front seat used to be.

Really Bob? That thing looks so rough I'd say that its eye spinach! It appears to have been rode hard and put away wet. Now if the Swedish Bikini team was posing with it, then I would agree that its eye candy. :D

Matt could pay for his vacation in Tahiti repairing that grill!!

I'm with Bob on liking the unrestored hulks for their own mysticism. I've decided pickups should never be painted.

Careful on counting those manifold holes! Notice some are exhaust, some are intake, some are just a bit out of view. I don't know those older engines, but if the siamesed ports are in the middle of the manifold, there are two more singles hidden - making six.

It's a straight six manifold, 6 exhaust ports, 4 intake ports. cylinders 1&2, and 5&6 have siamesed intake ports. Same as my motor.

Dang! And I was in Kelowna for several days this past September (first time ever in BC)...saw lots of old cars, but didn't spot any Studes, let alone an exotic "found-object sculpture" like this one. I'd have taken a heap of wistful-looking closeups of it...

It can't be by chance that the beautiful '34 "Stugatti" phaeton rod is pictured a couple threads away. Somebody please rescue, and tastefully rod, this ghostly '34 too...

Yes, I posted the Stugatti also, which was created by cutting the roof off a 4 dr just like this one.
