        WOW! That would match Pete! Of course, Pete would be jealous of the cool graphics.

        1958 Provincial wagon

        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            I believe they were all 3.73 to 1 ratio TT rears, with low gear start Automatics, that would make a mean hot rod with a 289 in place of the OHV 170! [}][}][:0]

            Anyone know what was the standard rear ratio in these? I've heard they're pretty squirrely in high winds or over about 50 MPH!

                Except for the aerodynamics. Like pushing a brick through Jell-O!

                    I owned a Zip Van for several years. I replaced the engine with an excellent used '64 truck six. That is not like changing the engine in any other Studebaker. You roll the front sub-frame out from under the raised body. I seem to remember the rear axle ratio as being 4.27:1, or thereabouts. The Zip Van seemed to not want to, or I didn't want to, go above 45 mph. It was the only vehicle that I owned that my dog didn't like to ride in. After changing the engine and painting the van, I traded it (along with several boxes of NOS Zip Van parts)to a girl in NJ for her '64 Daytona hardtop.

                        I dig that front flow-thru ventilation system. Was that the precursor of RefreshAire?
