  • The truck is done! Except for the hood ornament .

    Well, my wife's E7 is done. Still waiting on the hood ornament from George Iverson, but it's been shipped--all we have to do is paint the "8" red on it, bolt it on and we're good to go. After 4 1/2 months off the road, this truck will be back in daily service as of Monday!!! It's almost TOO nice to be a daily driver!

    The interior was done to my wife's specs. Leather with a Pendelton Indian Blanket insert on the back and the famous "Studebaker Thunderbird" painted on the glovebox door. Plus, she wanted RED sun visors, so there they are! I think the truck turned out fantastic-- my wife's from Tucson and this is the Studebaker truck she's always wanted-- it's her "Arizona Desert Truck."

    Check out the last pic--it's the frame rail mounted dual master cylinder with booster! It fits! Barely! But it fits and works REALLY well!!

        VERY nice, Alan. Congrats. BP
        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

            I like the seat. This seat makes the truck look more like the owner wants it to be, march to a different drum. If its a driver it should reflect the owners wishes. After a car or truck is sold by dealer it is changed by most owners over time to reflect the owners personel style . Now its big chrome wheels and tires, Before it was mag wheels, before that it was chrome wheels.baby moons skitrs al of these reflect the owners view of what is right for them. Nice truck.

                I love the 'Pendleton' seat. That blanket probably cost more than the equivalent yardage of top grain leather!

                    Wow, Allan. Thanks for all the photos!

                    Hey, it looks like the front of the headliner tucks underneath that metal edge, rather than riding outside of it. Do you know if that's the factory way? I couldn't tell when messing with installing my headliner (old one was long gone). Anybody know?
