After a lot of thought, stress and changing my mind countless times, I decided to go to the "Dark Side".

Yep, we just finished the installation of a Packard 352 in my Scotsman.

Had to make sure everything would hold together under stress...

Congratulations, Matthew, you single-handedly destroyed the youth movement in SDC, :)

Even though yours was a joke, I always felt with the tooling all in place and paid for, the Packard V8 should have been an option in the 3/4t and up Studebaker trucks in the first place. Your combination is a bit of a stretch, but in theory someone could have wanted a real sleeper and might have ordered one in a Scotsman, had it been availble.

I have two rebuilt 352" Packard V8s running on the test stand right now and am planning to drop one in my 1955 3/4t this spring. The only real question for me is whether to use the B-W T85, make an adapter for the existing B-W T98 4-speed, or really step up to a contemporary six-speed truck transmission.

Great joke!

thnx, jv.

Officer Dave,

I think you must be slipping in your old age. If my monitor is correct, the right streak of rubber sure appears to be inboard of the right tire. I am not sure I would have gunned any vehicle knowing I would run out of concrete in 30 feet and then hit dirt.

OK OK, you fellas got me. :D I just couldn't resist though. [8D][:o)][:I]

Actually, those tracks were laid with the '57 Silver Hawk last Sunday evening after we installed a new clutch. ;)
Amazing enough, in the 28 years that my grandad has owned that Silver Hawk, that clutch disk installation was the ONLY 'major' mechanical work done to it. (Other than brakes, of course). And, it still runs like a new one. [^]

Again, sorry guys... but we can all use a good laugh, right? [:o)][8D]

Dave, put the gun down... ;)

I knew you wouldn't really have done it, but I think a Scotty with a 374/dual quads and a T-85/OD would be just the ticket! But maybe that's just me.

If you wanted to go more modern, would a Cummins straight six turbodiesel fit under the hood?

I'll be nice to Sheba. I wouldn't want to get on her bad side. (I don't want scars on my head. ;))

And, seriously though, my grandad has talked about dropping a 352 into one of his old trucks, like a '55 1/2 ton he has. And calling it the "Golden Hauler". (A spin off of Golden Hawk. :D)
We've got a 352, but... [8]


quote: A 440 will fit under that hood

I hope my uncle doesn't see that. He came very close to dropping a rebuilt 440 into a '64 Wagonaire. He actually had the engine on the detailed frame (With rebuilt front end) ready to go. But, then he decided to put the engine into a '53 pickup, and he got as far as removing the hood, grille, and radiator before he called it quits with it. Now he's bought an old Dodge Charger and is putting the engine in it.

I recently drove by the old farmhouse where there'd been a 2R16 sitting for YEARS with a 352 in it. I'm sad to say the whole property's been cleared!:([V] House, vehicles, barn (that housed a spare 352!) - all of it's gone.
I had brief thoughts (thankfully, I came to my senses!) of acquiring that 2R16 and getting it running again (it still had the old 4-speed crashbox in it too - they'd used that truck to haul hay for decades). I'd had in the back of my head - showin' up at a Stude meet with "Golden Hawg" on it! Woulda been easy to modify a "Hawk" script to read "Hawg"[}:)]!

Where did you get that picture of the '64? It looks to have a Virginia inspection sticker on it, I wonder if it was a car Tom Covington had? Maybe Leonard can help us on this one.

Matt,

Where did you get that picture of the '64? It looks to have a Virginia inspection sticker on it, I wonder if it was a car Tom Covington had? Maybe Leonard can help us on this one.

Tom's 64 Studebaker was brown. Doesn't look like the same car.
