    Domenic,
    The restoration is looking very good. That will be a great looking car when done. You should be very proud.

            If originality were an issue, I could nitpick with the shiney trunk interior but, I certainly wish mine looked that good![]

                    When I was in California over the weekend I checked out a '55 Commander coupe for sale. Original paint...pink with a black roof. The trunk and floors were shiny pink.

                    I'd say the paint on the floors of Domenic's car are better than Studebaker did (so is the frame, engine, etc.), but still original...and TO DIE FOR! []
