    It does have a custom frame! NEW Full Art Morrison chassis with coil overs. Also there will be a full chrome moly roll cage from the front to the back which will make
    the new chassis even stiffer!. Click image for larger version

      No doubt a Viper would be cheaper but about anyone can buy one. This is going to be a unique and captivating build. He'll probably never park next to one like his at a car show.

        Custom 1950 Panel with a Viper V10 built by Bob Maker with the Northwest Chapter. Pretty cool vehicle.

            Bob,
            You are right, I could buy a Viper if I want and it would be cheaper then what I'm doing. But I sold a big 1969 Camaro build that was 3/4 done and had about 85k in parts but every where I go I would see 10 to 15 at a car show. Dodge only builds about 1500 per year which is rare compared to a Corvette. But the Studebaker has such beautiful lines and a modern engine and frame makes for a great package.

                Nice modifications, but still looks like a Studebaker. I like the front fender vents.

                    I like it except for one major item. IMO, the front fenders/headlight area should not be shortened up. I have seen several done in a similar fashion and in all cases (IMO) it ruins the "balance" of the car, appearance wise. Small headlight rings rather than eyebrows would be fine.

                    EDIT: On any car, an uneven number of wheel spokes gives an illusion of motion and an even number appears static.

                      We are going to be trying 3 different headlights. The wheels are still a ways off, we are going to machine some mock up wheels for shop rollers then photoshop different wheels as it comes together. We are removing the rain cutters and going to form new half round trim in its place. The front of the roof line is going through a very slight chop to level the roof line out. The scallop in the door is being extended to the front of the rear wheels opening, there will also be vents in those openings.

                          I totally agree. Heavy industrial equipment is always cool, especially the old stuff.

                            Looks like you're going to build a Veinte Victoria Coupe.

                                Here is a look at the under side of the rear. We will be upgrading the rear coilovers
