  • Went Shopping

    And found the very rare, one-off Studebaker prototype 289 V9 option car:

    Missing the special plug wire, but that can be fixed!

    I looked at a flock of 3... a '57 Silver Hawk, a '62 (I think) GT, and a '61 Hawk parts car.

    Several parts of various sorts, including a full dash with tach, and a couple of NOS early Lark rear fenders.

    Anybody know the designation for this engine? [?]

    Are you having withdrawls of only having one Stude THAT bad? [)]

    Oh, looks like the '61 also donated its seats to the '57 as well.

                    If the price is low enough you'd likely make a profit from sale of parts, don't know if any of those cars are worth restoring, maybe the one that runs???

                    What say the experts???

                        The word for today is: crusty.

                        I'm seeing 3 parts cars, or two very ambitious restoration projects and a parts car. The rust is real off-putting, but it wouldn't be quite so bad if the cars weren't deteriorated in just about every other possible way, too.

                        How about a nice '37 Dictator sedan?

                            Lot's a parts there! I could use the carb and valve covers off the '62. The 61 side grilles and turn signals are on the 57 too! The running V-8 and the 4-spd should cover your investment..
