      As you already know from Post #73, the BLOCK IS or WAS a 289, if it still has it's Dished Pistons and 289 Crank.

      But from our V8 Engine I.D. Page here:
      http://www.studebakerdriversclub.com/V8EngineID.asp

      You find that it is a 1957 Car Engine from a '57 President or Silver Hawk.

      I see that it does have Late 1962 to 1964 Valve Covers with Oil Filler Caps, giving you THREE ways to Fill it and let the crankcase breathe.

              You can add a Fram F3 or F4 Canister Type Oil Filter to the Oil Filler Pipe, they take a C3 or C4 Element.
              OR, add the Newer type Studebaker Base and Bracket that uses the spin-on PB-50 Fram or replacement Brand throwaway Filter.

              There are HUNDREDS of Posts here about Oil, some use the Valvoline Silver bottle Racing Oil with the proper amounts of ZDDP for all flat tappet Engines.

              Some use an additive like Redline "Break-in additive" or ZDDPlus to their regular Good Brand of 10/30 or Heavier Oil, depending on Season and Climate as always.

              Always avoid the "New Car" multi-weights that contain 0, or 5 Wt.

                  Poor little Six, it had a LOT of work to do pulling all that, at least it is a Short Bed.

                    True - it would probably be a matter of deciding whether you would want to put a something in the bed or run the AC - both at the same time might be impossible...

                      Looks like the body might be about the only thing that remains Studebaker...

                        It WAS a 6 Cyl. but at least on a Stude. Truck unlike the Cars there is no Brake, Suspension, Differential etc. difference from a V8.

                        That could be a fun Streetrod for those that are into that. I think it looks good except the Interior.

                        I have to wonder what that silver material is covering the Rear Window Weatherstrip? Looks pretty good.

                            # 87 is listed as a '61 so I am curious why the front fender stainless trim is wrong for that year. It should jog up a little as it runs from the front of the fender to the door rather that be straight.

                              Yep - you are correct - truck below is correct for '61. 5E, 7E, 8E and 1959/60 Larks essentially had the chrome in the same place - and there are a lot more of those fenders around than '61s...

                                Looks like a Major IMPROVEMENT to me.

                                But the "Champ" Nameplate belongs level with the Moulding.


                                Geeze, will the WRONG Heater hookups NEVER End?
                                These are getting to be more common than wrong or missing Battery Hold Downs!
