In the December 12th issue of Old Cars magazine, there is a picture of a custom-built '51 Studie woodie. Go to www.hillsrodandcustom.com to see it.

This car was at the SEMA show in Las Vegas last month. It looks even better "live" than it does in the picture. VERY well done.

Looks like the headlights from a 1937 Ford.
Learned to drive on a 37 Ford, and the clutch

This is without doubt one of the best renditions of a custom Studebaker we have seen, a really fine piece of work. The wood work is amazing. I made some small simple pieces of wood trim for my Stiletto three wheeler, and that was quite a bit of work, so I can really appreciate what these guys have done.

The front bumpers are very similar to the rear bumper we made for the Stiletto. I don't recognize these, so they must be custom made, but they have to be made from something. Anyone here recognize where they came from or what they were made from?

Mine was made by cutting and pasting an old Fiat Spyder rear bumper.

This looks very much like a "Copy" of the Washington State location, '50 Champion actual "Woodie Wagon" that looks like a wagon, it's even the same Dark Green.

It was done by a Cabinet Shop Owner, also just fabulous wood work.

The bumpers look similar to what was used on 1953/55 Corvette's, but the "Dagmar's" appear to be larger.
