          Very Very Nice!
          I want to know much more about this car?
          It was obviously built in a professional Street Rod shop.
          Thanks for posting.

            Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. To my eye several aspects of this vehicle just look weird and awkward .
            Looks like they needed to narrow the front track to fit in those ridiculous donk wheels.
            'Different strokes for different folks' as they say.
            When one takes on restyling what is recognized as one the most beautiful automotive designs ever, the result is bound to be judged against the original. A few are improvements. I don't see this as one.

              I agree with Jessie on the wheels.
              Other than the completely restyle interior, the general lines of this car have not be altered.
              Things have just been smoothed out and the seams and gaps tightened up.
              This car was obviously built from a C car.....and I love the rear view mirror treatment.
              When I went to eBay I thought there were a lot of pictures, can't wait to go back to read the write up.

                Hate the wheel wells. The tires and rims look way out of proportion and all of that room around the tires just bugs the heck out of me. Brian's CGI roadster is cleaner and doesn't look so gangsta.

                      Not a bad looking car but who did he have to have build it and what has to be under it to have $200 grand in a Studebaker? Any Studebaker. The shops labor rate must have been $200-300 per hr.and they sat around alot drinking beer and shooting the bull on the clock. But is a nice looking car just not $200 grand nice. If I could get that much to build one I would be all over it tomorrow.

                        wasn't that a Boyd Coddington build? The Studester script above the seats looks car magazine familiar

                          Agreed on the wheel wells. Those donk wheels are butt ugly. Looks like the builder did lower the base of the windshield into the cowl, though. And I think the door/A-pillar transition could have been done better, to eliminate that spine on the front edge of the door. Also agree on a very poor ebay presentation.

                            I thought you were right. I also thought Boyd built it, but as it turns out, It appears that it won a Coddington Award. Here's the guy who built it:
