        OK with me...as long as it has an appropriate battery hold down.

        Let's see if this sends the fragile SBC hating purists into hysteria, therapy, or off the proverbial blasphemy launch pad!

              I'd like to see the technical side of this one, how the V6's were joined, what trans was used, and like others, hear it and see it drive around.
              Too many of these cars have laid in the mud dying, but at least this one is off the ground and while not Stude powered (or suspended, or much of anything Stude mechanical) I think it is a better use of the car than to become a pile of iron oxide.

                You dont have to be a purist to dislike the SBC.

                Anyway, I think this car is an example of true innovation, I mean who would have thought? I really like it! I just wish I could at least hear this beast run..

                  I don't know anything about Hyundai engines, but that thing is cool. If it really is driveable, I'm for it.

                    Changing the timing belt or the water pump if it's behind the timing belt on the rear engine might be real fun. Other than that it's pretty neat.

                      My guess is, whover "created" this must own a junkyard and have access to unlimited Hundai engines and other various modern car parts, otherwise I don't know why anybody would spend money and time to buy the stuff and modify it to fit. Hopefully, they started with a shell Studebaker that was waiting for the crusher. I'm not a purist, I've been considering installing a newer drive train in my '32 Studebaker so I can safely drive it--- no, not an SBC, one of the most enduring motors ever designed, probably a more modern straight six.

                          Boy, a 1933 anything that's survived is a miracle. Looks like this one got plucked just in the nick of time; what a creation! BP
                          We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                          Ayn Rand:
                          "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."
