        I have owned three restomod Studebakers. I, and most others here, like all and any Studebakers. We may like one more than another, but they are all in the "family".
        To answer your question directly - No, and I doubt that there would be one, unless you want to start one. Why bother, when a restomod is mostly Studebaker anyway and most Studebakers are modified to some degree by this time. Welcome to this Forum. Join the Studebaker Drivers Club, from this site.

              Define restomod
              The same as restorod.

              My definition would be...

              Essentially stock appearing car, with updates to the drivetrain, wheels/tires, stance. Maybe some subtle body and interior mods.

              I'd say my '63 Lark is a restomod/restorod...








              As was my '54...

                    Why would anyone want to change a perfectly good vehicle like a K-body[}]



                    Oh well! I guess you might find some help here.

                    WELCOME!!!!!

                      If you did that Tucker light you would have a full on Kustom [)] [)].

                      Dick beat me to it. I would define a Restorod/Restomod in the same way.
                      Welcome to the forum, I think even though your making changes to your car, you won't need a "dedicated" forum for a Modified Studebaker.
                      There's more than enough knowledge here to assist you.
                      From where it started, Stock, to where you want to go, with persons here that have probably tried what your wanting to accomplish.
                      Either through trial and error, I think if you went anywhere else, you would get the ol "LOOK" of shrugged shoulders and a HUGE i duh no.

                      Once again, welcome, if you choose to stick around.

                          Actually, restomod is a combination of restored and modified. Restored would be brought back to original condition with no modifications. Some people get finicky when you say you have restored your car and looking under the hood they see an LS1. (not that there's anything wrong with that) So, they came up with the term Restomod.

                          Basically, what Dick said.

                          I'm restomoding my Bullet-nose Sedan. Or, should I say, I'm paying to have my Bullet-nose restomodded. I want to tour the States in it and don't particularly want to give up modern day creature comforts. Hey, what else is all that money we make for???

                          How about posting some pictures of your project. We love pictures on the forum.

                            Some of us do the restomod thing to trucks, too.
                            Stude V8 power, TH350 GM transmission, Mustang II front suspension, etc.

                              Restomods can be Studebaker powered too. By the definition offered I guess mine has to be a custom since the body has a lot of mods. And lest you say, "another Chevy powered Stude" my motor came out of a Pontiac!





                              As others have said, there is a lot of savvy here on this forum for both stock and modified Studebakers and you find willing assistance. All you need to do is ask.
