  • 1930s studebaker racing engine photos I found

    Hi- trying to find out more information about the photos I have recently found. They came from an estate in south bend of a man who was an engineer for studebaker. I have quite a few 8x10 original 1930s era photos showing many different views of the 2 engines that are in the attached photo. There are also lots of other photos of suspensions, brakes etc. I was told that this could be a miller built Indy race engine. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

      It looks like the engine has studs for head bolts.

        I have these images and more. I believe I shared them with Gary and some others. It is the 250 c.i. Eight that was offered in 1934 to anyone interested in racing. The price was $750. Gary is trying to replicate this engine, This was not the engine Studebaker used in the factory sponsored cars 1932-33, that was the 336 c.i. engine. As has been mentioned however the 250 was run by some independents.

          The photo on the bottom right is without question on the second floor of the Engineering building and I know exactly where it was taken. Man that brings back memories.
