  • From Gettysburg show: Chevy SSR meets '53 Stude C/K

    From another thread:







    NICELY done! That is COOL!

    Love the imagination. Love the execution.

    The owner built it over a period of 10 months in his spare time. It was pretty cool.

      He restored a '53 Champion to show winner and had a hood, dash and two doors left over.

        Cool! I like the looks of that from both angles. What a sweet little ride.

          I think the hood and that panel under it are from a '53-'54 sedan though. Tail lamps look like C/K.

            That's Herman Gantt's car. He's in the Central Virginia Chapter. Quite a wizard when it comes to things like this. He's the one who developed the tube front end for Studes, which Phantom sells.

                Yes, the front sheet metal is sedan, not C/K.

                    Those are sedan tail lights too, notice the ribs.

                      John Bridges' book show pictures of '53 C/K tail lights with ribs.

                        IIRC, 1953 C/K tail light lenses have moulded in ribs and 1953 sedan tail lights have ribs with stainless trim.

                            They appear to be C/K.

                              I just happened upon this thread while searching for an update on another Stude/SSR marriage thread.
                              Can anybody provide me with pictures of this one? The photos that were posted in 2011 are no longer active.
