It doesn't work. The front is too rounded, the back is too square. Proportionally it is OK. I like the stance.

Hmm. Someone's pretty good at Photoshop.

My favorite Mustang and Studebaker combined! The only thing it needs is me driving it !! Looks great to me, but then I've never been accused of liking "normal" cars, and I am still seen in a couple of rather unusual vehicles around town. If we would have had photoshop when some of us were young, I bet there would be some really interesting/strange cars, trucks, and bikes around.

The word fugly comes to mind. Just not good combo.

I think a GT hood with a shaker scoop would help connect the design. I had a 67 fastback for several years the coolest car I ever owned. I hope the studestang has a full Hawk GT dash, 4 speed and a "289" engine.

Some people have WAY too much spare time. :-) I vote NO.

Could the perpetrator try a version using a Hawk nose ?

If a -67 Mustang's the coolest car, then why bother with Studebaker??? It's not like a Mustang is a unusual car that's hard to find...

I've always wondered how a fastback from an earlier Barracuda (the one with the hugh back window) would look on a '53 Stude. Not that I would ever cut mine up.

You hit it 100%. I like it, it just doens't flow.

Or to use an old saying...The front end designers and the back end designers didn't know what each other was doing (or perhaps they never met). Rather like a 61-2 Corvette.

Can you just imagine the arguments over who made the 289 in that thing?!

Also, I think a 64-66 lark-type front end would better match the more boxy look of the 'stang, but that's just me.

That would look sweet if you put a 53-56 C/K (studebaker) rear clip on it! Someone forgot to photoshop the lower body line that goes from the door to the fender and remove the 'showroom glare' from the hood. Was the 'artist' a Ford guy dreaming of stude looks and power, or a Stude guy switching to the dark side?

It was a very fun car to drive and it was styled like no other car I had ever owned (mustang fastback). I always admired the hawk at the end of my paper route daily. I suppose I never thought I could afford a car like that. Well years later I was able to get that Hawk and it is now the coolest car I will ever own. I never got mustang tattooed on my body but my avatar is the is the Hawk wings with K-Hawk below it tattooed on my calf.. Remember Kathy my wife rode with me to Texas to drive back my cruiser sight unseen 10 years ago. I have also owned a corvette, several dodges, Chevys, Buicks,Fords,Fiats, Audi's, a cool firebird (very fast car) and several other brand x . Have you ever owned anything other than a Studebaker. I actually do own a 2000 mustang and a ford focus and Chevy pick up right now, not counting the cruiser or my parts Hawk. jeep and mark 8 I am keeping for the engine. \See it's really not a bother

I wanted to post by NOX comments. It posted down here instead hope this helps with his understanding of liking more than 1 car.

I like it a lot,
What would you think of a 59 Lark with 63 rear Mr. Rice?

That would be the Stude equivelant of a Brazilian butt lift:rolleyes:

I'm sure you've all seen the Studeolet.
