    Tell Ellis it will have some company if he brings it to Lancaster.

      I met Ellis back in the mid 70s when he had just bought a 52 Champion convertible. He was quick to tell me that he was really a Ford man and only bought the Stude because it was a convertible. Once exposed to the disease though, he got caught up in Studebakers. He still has several nice ones that are all modified. He is now talking of putting an LS1 in the convertible.

          LS1 is the ticket if he wants POWER & SPEED!

          I have a 62 Daytona w/Vette drivetrain & it is a pavement MOVER!

            The car was one I tried to buy weeks before he traded a Lincoln Zephyr coupe body for it. He drove it some and then it went into storage. Ellis had been talking 426 Hemi, but now he is thinking Chevy etc. His son races Dodge engines so he has the Hemi stuff.

              Well I'll be jiggered! Another buggy with square steps! A nice example of what was called a 'Piano Box Buggy'. The least expensive vehicle Studebaker offered. I believe the original cost was around thirty dollars.
