  • Started work on the old van again

    Some of you may remember the pictures I us to post of the 1925 Studebaker Delivery van my father (davepink53) and I were building.
    Well after a year or so of sitting there collecting dust, we have finally dusted her off and started working on it again.
    Currently making two new doors for it. The way it is currently going we might be able to get paint on it over this summer

    That looks like a large car. Did Studebaker build the original body ?

            Klif, Studebaker did build delivery vans, although this one did not have a body when we started it.
            We have built it our self's working from photos and drawings of Studebaker vans

              I remember reading about some Cubans who made a 59 Buick float and drove it to Florida. The only thing was, they got lost, missed Miami and were headed for Jacksonville when the Coast Guard picked them up and sunk the Buick.

                Funny, I was just thinking about this vehicle a few days ago and started to ask about any progress. Good to hear that you are on the project again. I would love to be able to build something like this.

                  What handsome lines that van has! Looks like a very elegant oversize surfing woodie!
