    No factory supercharged 1961 - 1962 Studebakers as production cars.

      '57-'58 supercharged Studebaker-Packards were all 2-bbl.
      '63-'64 supercharged Studebakers were all 4-bbl.

        Dont forget the very rare pre 57 aftermarket setup which was a 4-bbl.

          Once we get away from production orders, there lies madness. About once a month we get a call asking, "Can you build a 374" Packard V8 with 2x4bbls and the Isky cam, "Because there was that Jet Streak memo and I was told mine was a special order built that way." or "There was this article in Popular Mechanics which sad the '55 Speedster could be ordered with a supercharger" or "Mechanix Illustrated had a photo of a '56 Golden Hawk with a supercharger." We say, "Your money, your build, your decision."

          Yes, Studebaker did some interesting stuff. One could build a 1930s President with an Indy replica 4-carb engine. It would be historically accurate, just not supported by a production order.

          OTOH, the two Champ pickups with R2 engines have production order documentation.

          As always, build what you want to drive. Just don't invent documentation for what never happened, or just do what the Mopar and Chevy guys do and call it a tribute.

            For the last two years at the South Bend show, there was a white '60 Hawk with a Golden Hawk supercharger set-up blowing into a Paxton style 4 bbl and bonnet. No hole in the hood! I would like to find out how he got the supercharger to clear the hood. Anybody know the car?- Jim

              57 GH Supercharger fits under a 64 Daytona hood, why not a 60 Hawk.

                very nice job on that engine, but why didn't he get some tape to mask the heater hoses?

                  The '57-'58 G/H had a hole in the hood with a fiberglas cover to clear the s/c from the factory. The Larks had more room above the engine.- Jim

                    He COULD have used Avanti R3 Front Engine mounts, I have some if you need them.
                    They are very handy to use on R1 and R2 Avantis also, that commonly have Fan to Shroud clearance issues.

                      I have the Aug. '55 issue of "Motor Life" with a road test of a Speedster with the 4 barrel McCulloch kit, installed by STU-V. The article is by Dean Moon.
                      Was there an article about one in "Popular Mechanics"? Does anyone know what issue? Is it available on line?

                          I think that is what I have in my '61 now. What is the difference between the standard and R3 mounts? -Jim
