"It was based on a Stude chassis, some Stude interior parts, and 6 cylinder Stude Flathead." http://www.forgottenfiberglass.com/?p=563
I fear no good can come of this.

That's an interesting car...the tall narrow grille would've made for a good Packard front end...I can imagine this as a '60 Packard Panther or some such, had Churchill prevailed more fully after the initial success of the Lark...wonder what the status of the "Stiletto" is now?

I think that car has some basic beauty to it. I would like to see it updated with a Stude V-8, disc brakes etc. Or maybe just a Cathcart type Champion 6 would do. Since its demise would not be much of a loss to Studebaker folks, I don't see a downside to this "project," if it really is a project.

Interesting that the automotive historian mentioned at the bottom is named Hacker. The drawing has nice lines, but I am not sure that the existing car would build into that design without lots of adjustments.

Oh for simpler times!

Here is a new link to see a more current picture and yes, the owner is letting it decay outdoors - in Florida. Compare the newer picture in this link to the one linked to at the beginning of this thread. Some people should not be allowed to have certain cars.
