  • Repairing a rolled over Stude

    I will let Frank Drumheller (studelark) chime in and tell the whole story of this project, but I will just say that this is Frank's son, Wade's 65 Studebaker. He gunned it a while back and flipped it over. He and Frank have decided to replace the top and have bought a doner car for a new top. They have cut the top off of both cars. Here are some photos.

    Below is how the car looked before the accident...



    Below is the engine. This is what lead to the rollover!



    Below is the result!



    Below is the donor car.



    Below is the top that will be installed on Wade's car.



    Below is Wade's car with the top removed.

                    Not to steal Frank's thunder, but Wade was fine. He gunned it on a side street and the rear end kicked around on him and he ended up going over. The donor car was provided by the gentleman I sold my '63 Daytona to in 1976.

                            Those wheels in the first pic look like a set of Appliance wheels I had back in the 70s.
