  • 1954 Engine Start Up

    This is the engine startup for my 1954 232 Studebaker Commander Coupe that I have been working on for 3 years. I have just recently finished the engine and thought it would be neat to post it. Anyway check out the link.

    Cool!

    The second time I watched it I must have had the speakers up too loud. The wife says, "You watching the video AGAIN!"

    Thanks for sharing. I sure enjoyed it.

        Always fun to fire one up after it's been rehabbed! Makes me wanna yank the engine out of the Provincial and drop in the 321 so I can hear it talk once again.[]

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

            Pretty neat! Just the one water leak, huh. [)]

            If you put a new cam in it, you'll want to run it for 15 minutes or so next time at 2,000 RPM or so to properly break in the cam.

                    With my dial up connection it takes quite a while for this to load. I enjoyed it almost as much as the old Studebaker ads.

                    Wow! Stone cold and runs as smooth as glass. Impressive. Almost makes me want to keep Ol Frumpy!

                    Lotsa Larks!

                        I enjoyed your video. Thanks for posting it.

                        Too bad you couldn't put wheels and a seat on the cart and scoot around the shop with it. [:0] Oh well, you'll have the real thing to drive eventually!
