        The integral bumper is more disturbing to me than the square headlights. But I do agree that the quality of the job is very good.

            Integral bumper??? That's a pretty much standard front panel save for the HL mod. He's chosen to mount the park/turn lites inside the lower opening, which from a practical standpoint renders them just about invisible.

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

                I agree that the workmanship is apparently good, but now he wants to sell it. I read years ago that if you build a custom you better like it because not many people will want it like you made it.
                I do like what I can see of the interior, but I think it would show better without the fish eye lens.
                It's doubtful that he will get what he would like after all that work.

                    I like it, I would like to see more of the car. I have always admired this kind of craftsmanship from a person that can work metal the way this has been done. If I could do it,I wouldn't be scratching my head trying to figure out what to do with some slightly rusty Lark fenders. More Pictures!

                        I kept looking at it and I had some vague recollection of a Ch*vy product. After looking on the internet it struck me. It looks like a 90's s-10 with those square headlights and that grille! Gotta appreciate the talent but I'm also wondering why he didnt just keep the round headlights. It just makes the front of the car look too square, flush, and boxy looking with those things.
