    Really nice looking car. Did you notice that in the 9 years the 350 has been in it hasnly gotten 510 miles. That kind of thing really kills the arguement for swapping to a more repairable engine. If I owned a car like that it wouldn't stay as nice, but it would have a lot more miles.

        How hard and expensive would it be to find a Studebaker Engine and transmission (auto or 4Spd) to put back into the car. I assume it should not be difficult task. But the other questions are about finding the proper accessories for the Studebaker Engine (generator, Power steering, etc.P

          I have every thing , but why? so many 62 GT's out there with the right set why change it back ? good running and nice looking hawk, nothing wrong with a SBC engine, in fact Studebaker liked them that they used them in the 65-66 cars, buy it drive it and enjoy it.

              Once the board had decided to end auto production - and do so in a manner that wouldn't result in a bunch of lawsuits from dealers - the GM engines were a matter of convenience more than choice. They were looking for the EASIEST solution since the marque's foundry operation was closing.

                convenience is still part of the reason they are used still now.
