    Geez! That's pretty. So nice to see one some other color besides pea soup green or cloudy day gray.

    Is it the camera angle or is that thing wearing a '52 front bumper? Those smaller guards towards the middle are 52 for sure. Still a sharp looker tho![^]

    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        You do realize that the car has 4 doors, right? [)]

        That paint looks 6 feet deep. [^]

            Bob, I don't have a clue, so I'll trust you on the bumper ID.

                        Had a short, but exciting drive today. It goes like spit, not so much in stopping. The brake pedal almost went to the floor one time so I need to rebuild the brakes even though they were done two years ago by the PO. yet another reason to not let a car sit.

                            That first generation V-8 is a nice runner. I don't think small verticle bumpers were offered in '51. The larger verticles should be front and center, with only bumper bolts outboard.
                            I was never impressed with the brakes on mine even when they were freshly rebuilt; not enough surface for the weight of the car. I replaced all with a set from a '61 V-8; difference between night and day.
