  • Building a killer 64 Daytona 4 door

    I have been having overheating problems with my partial flow 259 for sometime and it finally just killed itself yesterday. A year ago I purchased a full-flow 289 in need of a rebuild. I do not intend to build a drag car, but wish to make this blue 64 a handler. What I am looking for is input on how to build this 289 and any help on converting this flight o matic car into a 4 speed road carver with a hot 289. At least as hot as a 289 can get until I can afford the blower. I know about the R3 head conversions and cams, but what is the best way to create a monster NA 289 beast. Things like increasing the miniscule rocker ratio, bigger cams and possibly rollers for revs, performance clutches and whether or not a Stude 4 speed should be used or another X brand manual should be put behind the 289. Also if it would be better to use the full flow block over the partial flow block since I hear rumors that the P-flow blocks are stronger. I also am looking for info on anyone who has disc brake kits, preferably for all 4 wheels and some serious brakes as well. Hydraulic boosters are also of interest. I have had this 64 3 years, love it to death and am a relative new-comer to Stude's. I love oldschool tech opposed to new tech but am basically willing to do what is necessary to build a unique chevy killing studebaker that turns heads as well as it roasts tires and above all is motor-vated by the mighty Stude V-8. Thanks guys. Happy to see how tight of a community this is.
