    All those obnoxious modifications, and no pictures of them? What is this guy thinking?

    Here's the question I sent in:

    Hello,

    With the significant modifications to the engine and running gear, could you post some pictures of the under hood, engine, under the frame, the interior and more please?

    It's hard to sell a modified car without pictures of the modifications.

        Looking at the location of the front wheels you can tell something has been done to it.

          Can't drive it anymore because it's too embarrassing? Are those actually spinning hubcaps?

          Wrong, just wrong.

          Grandpa was a Studie dealer. He got it off the car carrier in 1956 and drove it until 1959

                  This (these) car(s) may be a bit extreme, but the idea of obtaining better fuel mileage isn't. With todays questionable gasoline blends and super high prices, "R' type engines are just not practical
                  for anything like a daily driver. I've always thought that a smooth running, non-fussy 259 (or even the rarer 224) CI Studebaker V8 would be sweet under the hood of a '63-'64 Avanti.

                    259 would be your best choice IMHO since not only are they just a tad larger in displacement than a 224/232; unlike the latter two motors, parts are still readily available.

                      I can't imagine anyone starting the bid-not at $7500. Somebody might bid if they see it and drive it first,maybe not! In-experienced ebayer,Ebay loves them. From the sound of it,you'd need a comlete running chassis to put it back to stock. "small Chevy engine,mounted sideways" -probably sub-framed. "Little rust creeping BACK",does that mean it's full of bondo? Not a bad looking body,and the paint colors are nice.

                        Not everyone is an expert on selling cars.

                        Come on guys. I thought this forum was well past the days of picking apart ebay cars.

                          Sorry, but we're not done yet. We're trying to quit, really we are, but this one threw us back into the darkness.

                            Sure there are. It's a 60 Hawk and it's silver. I get it...

                              sadly, it doesn't appear so.

                              regarding putting a fwd drive power train in a rwd car to save a few mpg seems like a lot of work for little gain, and personally I think I would adopt a different plan of action. regards, Junior
