      Yes and another frame is skinned over the later GT frame. The guy who made it was going to make a convertible.
      I should have none of the 53 frame flex.

        Did you move the gas tank from the left frame mount to a central position between the rails to facilitate the dual exhausts?
        sigpic 1963 Studebaker Avanti: LS1 motor and T-56 transmission have been moved rearward, set up as a two seat coupe with independent rear suspension. Complex solutions for nonexistant problems.

          Also, is that 2" diameter exhaust?

            I have Flowmaster 44's on my Lark with 2-1/4" duals. Sounds GREAT!

              Looking good Jack! David does really nice work. Maybe once your car gets out of his shop, I can get him to finish some of my languishing projects .

                    Looks great! Please tell us about those tail pipes. Are they custom made or does someone manufacture them? What diameter are they?

                      Something just looks "unnatural" 'bout a Studebaker without an oily underside. If I can ever get the 289 installed in my 1955 E 5 truck, I wish I could make a dual exhaust set up as neat. To me, this one is as good as it gets.

                          That's Alex Magdaleno's '54.
                          A recreation of one he owned decades earlier, but sold and regretted selling.
                          He built up a nice 289 and custom made his own dual Weber intake setup.
                          (I built his valley cover and sold him a pair of intake flange plates)

                          Sweet machine. Alex used to be active on the old(er) forums... But he's still around...
