    To: 63t-cab,----Hey Joe thanks a lot...I really appreciate that comment. The black car was restored to absolutely stock condition.....and then in '96 I decided to try and squeeze the blower under the hood.....I figured if
    any Studebaker should have a supercharger, it probably should be a 'Speedster'. Did You ever read that a few Stude dealers (mainly in California I guess) installed McCulloch supercharger kits on stick-shift
    Speedsters when the cars were new? Those kits were a bit different from the '57 Golden Hawk setup I am running....they even retained the stock 4bbl carb (as Studebaker probably should have done). Take care.

          Two more WOWS,the R2 blower almost matches the car's paint job.

            To: OORACER,----Absolutely outstanding engine compartments...You are to be complemented. Question...on the R3, where are the pipes going off the supercharger...to an intercooler?

              To: 63t-cab,---Yes ,You hit the nail square on the head.....McCulloch made an air cap for the WCFB similar to an R2 setup...the kit came with directions on how to make that carb compatible with the blower...To Me,
              the carb 'sealed in a box' as on the GH and the R3 Avanti, is still a safer, more refined deal. Take care

                No photos of a 6-cylinder Lark engine bay? Nothing allows the view of pristine finished inner fenders than the engine bay of an inline six powered Lark!

                      To OORACER: That second one with bright red crank-case & silver intake is just awfully nice!
                      & to candbstudebakers: I actually do know my engine aint Studebaker but I just wanted to show what I mean with bright paint, however, the second picture that I couldn't post was a all-Studebaker bay.

                        To sn-60--yes the intercooler is in the glove box where the heater formally was. The coolant for the intercooler is in a tank shaped like a battery box, and located where the battery was.
                        The r2 is now going into a 63 daytona conv., that is right now getting a frameoff to be made a super lark
                        thanks

                            I might be wrong but that "stock' '55 Stude engine" loox Ford-blue to me.

                              I like the looks of the '61s under the hood. The silver block with the reddish-orange covers looks sharp. The master cylinder mounted on the firewall is a nice touch, too!
