  • My 52 Studebaker Photoshopped

    I have been thinking about lowering the front of my 52, so I Photoshopped it.

    Here is what it looks like now.



    Here it is lowered and with skirts.



    I posted it on the HAMB forum and a guy did this.



    What do you think?

    The last picture is remarkable.Studebaker should have made one like that. The lowered picture looks better than original in my opinion.

      Personally, I prefer it just the way it is now (once the RF fender's painted)

        The only improvement I would make Leonard, is to install Standard duty front springs, instead of the generic H.D. ones or remove the spacers if so equipped! The front should be pretty close to level.

          StudeFreak,
          Studebaker DID make one like that. The business coupe. Roy Valdez has one for sale right now. He's here on the forum. Its a nice rust free California car. Project, but solid. I think he was only asking $2K for it.

            As much as I like photography I just havent got the hang of photoshop for major alterations.

            But I did take a pair of scissors to this 35mm photo once.

            I say level the car out leonard, the business coupe looks sharp, you have some work ahead of you if you do that. [8D]

                Since Sals54 brought it up. Did Studebaker build any 52 business coupes? I have never seen one.
                After looking at the pictures I would say that, if you are going to run skirts and flipper caps, lowered all around would look better. I would go for nose down with a more drag race look.

                      No; the Business Coupe body was not offered in 1952. Some reasoning suggests the production space was needed for the new 2-door hardtop, so the total number of models offered was similar to 1951. BP

                        Bring it down a little I say, level or slightly more so. I don't like em too low, so my opinion here doesn't count.

                        It would be a whole lot easier to put a 52 front on a 51 business coupe than to do the HAMB proposal. Still - what if you DID a little tweeking of the roofline? I have a hardtop and I admit I think the sedan roofline is just not quite right. It's ungainly.
                        What if it was moved ahead not so far, just lose a bit of package tray room? Then lean it down a bit, change the angle.

                            Now with Halloween approaching I think a good holiday scare would be that everyone take a side shot photo of their stude and ALTER it.[}] Then place it somewhere your Stude friends will see it as they bring the kids by for Trick or Treat. [:0] Creepy and horrified reactions will surely follow.

                              Leonard,
                              I say leave it like it is. That nose up stance and rear fenders make it look fast, like the Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.
