    I'd love to get my hands on that dash!

    Note ignition switch in common "retracted" position

      Bob,

      I've never owned a T-35 tranny IN A STUDE. But I've owned 4 Rambler Classics with a 232cu.in. 6 in them and all had the T-35 for a gearbox. They all got a workout while I owned them and I never had a problem.

      Miscreant adrift in
      the BerStuda Triangle


      1957 Transtar 1/2ton
      1960 Larkvertible V8
      1958 Provincial wagon
      1953 Commander coupe

      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

          Anne,
          This car has been for sale on craigslist previously. I think they were only asking 300 or 400 for it if I remember right. I just did not have the room nor the time to deal with it. I think the owners name is Hiedi. Good luck on finding it a new home.

              Bob; it isn't that it is BAD, it's just that, when you know about all the Stude. options and possibilities, you go for the BEST! The '56-'62 Lark 6's had the the Cast Iron case Flight-O-Matic, the same as a V-8 but with the low gear start, IF I were going to own and drive a 6 cyl. I would opt for the stronger of the two!

              The other reason is that the cast Iron case units are very similar to the Ford-O-Matics making parts easier to find, than for the limited usage Rambler 6 transmission.
