    Oh, heck, Go with the Packard in it! It might not be an easy swap, but no one else will have one!

        Going back to 1982 or '83 we went to an Iroquois Chapter meet at the Art Park in Lewiston NY along with several other Ontario Chapter members.

        At the park l met a gentleman with a very nice '66 Daytona, green with white vinyl roof, a ringer for the one in the '66 brochure. He took me over to see his car, to prove that he had removed " that GM crap" (or words to that effect) from the car and installed a "much better" Studebaker 289 which, of course, looked absolutely at home in the engine bay. Wish l knew what happened to the car. l've thot of it often (rather fondly, if l can confess) over the years, especially when hearing of so many engine swaps in so many Studes having been made in the other direction.

          The car is in Spring Creek NV. Close to Elko. Serial # C 130667. He would like to get it sold, and I think it may be more project than I want. I will post some for sale info in the sale portion of forum. He has a few NOS parts with it. Bumpers grill inserts and taillight inserts.
