    The fellow that built this car shows it at many local shows. I overheard some folks deciding it had an Oldsmobile engine. He fabricated the intake manifold, etc.

    Bob, It appears the file is on your local computer. You can post it by clicking on the link above the message block that looks like a picture. If you hold your mouse pointer over it it will say "Insert Image".

    Detailed instructions are in the Message at the very top of the forum on How to post pictures etc. Here is a direct link:

      I think Stude powered hot rods are cool! They are different enough that it makes folks look twice, and we all know that it's cool to be different!!!!!

        Pat: Thanks for the heads up on posting photos. This was my second time and of course I forgot everything that worked a few months ago.

          That things probably way over carbureted, but it looks cool. Several people were experimenting with ram manifolds that had square tube runners during the Dick Datson Total Performance days.

              Right where it should be on a full flow, on the right rear, down low. Looks like he's running a FRAM filter.

              That Stude mill looks even better than a Ford flat-head sittin in there !

                At the Los Angeles Winter Meet, not one but two '30s Fords came with Studebaker power. (Husband and wife if I remember correctly)

                      At full throttle it probably has fuel dripping from the pipes...

                        looks like an R-series oil pan with the breather capped off by that gauze filter. Really squeezed those two pipes into the center port, would love to hear the noise it makes.

                          Glad to help, especially for a chance to see such a cool T bucket.

                            Hot rods with something other than a belly button motor in them are cool.

                            This one has to be my favorite...

                              I was at a car show this weekend and a guy had a Model A that he made into a topless roadster. It indeed had a '57 Olds mill with the J-2 setup. His exhaust header construction interested me as the center port was split just the way this Stude was. I did not hear it run.
