  • '41 Champion custom

    If you don't like customized cars, don't look!

    Wow, this is not what I was expecting when I read your lead in. I've seen a few 41 Street rods, but never one done that way. That truly is a Kustom. It needs more finish IMO, but that will be up to whoever buys it. Sure is some nice metal work.

      Raymond Loewy Associates would be pleased? Interesting interpretation! That coming from someone who has owned 5 stock '41 Champion coupes (and still has two). I note the only thing left stock was the instrument panel (which is interesting since it is almost always highly modified in rods). I doubt that he will get out of it what he put in, though that is not all that important.

        I am not a great fan of customs, but that car is one of the exceptions. I like the way they kept the features that still identify it as a 41 Studebaker. That car looks as good as any 40s custom.

          Has anyone on SDC seen this car or know who built it. It is off ebay as reserve was not met. Ken, Deltaville Va
