  • 55 Studebaker by the body shop

    I went with my sister today to the cemetery, of our relatives, Charlottesville, Virginia. When we drove by a junk yard and a body shop, I saw a 55 Studebaker sedan. The gate was locked, so I zoomed my camera so I could see it.

    There was a sign Bobby Morris body shop.

    The phone number is: 434-977-7716

        Darn, I literally just got back from eating Thanksgiving dinner with my mother in Charlottesville. However, I will be headed back that way tomorrow for a little 25 mile run in the mountains so may drop in for a look as he is just off the interstate in Belmont. A couple of years ago there was a 2R truck in the same general area that was for sale.

          That looks like a Cobra-Jet scoop.

              Its handy to have a hood scoop on a car when its driven in snow, as you can remove the scoop to shovel snow in the event that you get the car stuck.
