      And here is what I hope to be my future Wagon Hot Rod. I'm still working on the 62 Convert and now have a 69 Grand Prix I need to flip. So this one will probably wait till next year.

        And here's the spilled milk I've been cryin about for the last couple of years. Again, I know, not the right year, but, hey ! ! ! ! All Stude Wagons are soooo cool, I can't resist showin em off. This one I sold, then have missed it more than any other car I've ever sold. I'm still a bit weepy every time I look at the pix. You can see why, right???


        And that's all I'll do for now.

              That 57 looks waaay kooool. I dig the paint and the entire presentation. I've been thinking of going Ch*vy power on my 56 also, just to make it more marketable to the masses. They're still a bit skeered of original Stude power. How did the sale of your 57 go?? Did you get a good return on it?? (I'm not fishing for a number, just wondering if the return was worth the effort)

                Would a Packard V8 bolt in there? I would think a 352 would almost fit like a glove.

                  Sorry about the requestor's '56 to '58 thing, but where or when have you ever seen a Hot Rod '56 Wagon?
                  Those few '57 & '58's are about all I have ever seen, there really are not that many.

                    I like that color combination on that one Rich. I really think a '50's car should have two-tone paint.

                      I know Packard V8's will bolt into C/K cars. What about sedans and wagons?

                          Mine was a '58.

                          I came out OK on the deal. Actually, my only disappointment was that I didn't get to play with it longer before it sold.

                          As it happened, a dealer friend of mine made me a reasonable offer, so I "wholesaled" to him. That saved me from painting it, and spending too much on it. And it elimated dealing with eBay, tire kickers, and malcontents.

                          He sold it in about a week, and it showed up on Craigslist about a month later. It's no longer there, so I assume it sold again.

                          Too bad a forum member didn't inquire, they could have made a good deal.

                          I don't know what my friend got for the car, or what it sold for on Craig'slist, but I 'spect it had to be approaching the 10K mark. For what it was, all that had been done to it, that would be a fair price if a fellow wanted to keep it and love it as his very own.

                            Love the look, but the one deal breaker for me on hotrod wagons is interior resonance/road noise. It took more work with sound deadening material to make it habitable than any other car/truck I've ever built. A local Stude guy built a Lark 2-door wagon with a stock Chevy V6, so it wasn't engine noise, but he just couldn't stand the interior noise and sold it.

                              Why would you have to severely chop the car up for a Packard engine? If these cars will accept a big block Chrysler or Chevy or even a 50's Hemi, what makes a Packard so much bigger? I would think sedans and wagons would have a larger engine compartment than a C/K...
