    AWESOME !

    My first car,,(1965) was going to be a 53 Stude w 331 Caddy, No idea if a real Studilac..still remember that light yellow coupe in that south side of Chicago guys garage, $700..and did always, I was talked out of it by my Dad and Uncles. Not so miserable as I bought a '57 Vette ($850). Still always wanted a 53 Coupe..
    Funny,,I don't remember the guys garage I bought the Vette,, But that Stude was in my dreams for 45 years..
    Took me only 45 years,,but it's waiting in the garage right now..until my morning getting it and my 53 Jaguar XK120se (owned 43 Years !) out for a ride in sunny Arizona..

    Enjoy..

    Thanks. You own a lot of Studebakers. Where do you sleep?

    Very nicely done!! This would be a great car for the "Day 2" display at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals.

    Speedway still offers the Offenhauser carb hats in a period correct, low profile, to clear the hood.

    Well, mine had been run dry of oil, torque converter exploded, frozen and hit on the left front corner. Still worth every minute and better bang for the buck than a new car. I'd love the hear the Cadillac motor wind out.

    Thanks. Your '55 looked the same as mine when you got it, only mine had no motor..

    Sweet. I love that you painted the Caddy mill in 55 colours. Looks like Alberta Blue to me, but Studerich will correct me if I'm wrong (lol).
