      There are a few Hot Rods in the Southern California area with Studebaker engines in them. The guys showed up at the meet at the Petersen Museum a couple of years ago.

        That car was or is owned by Louie Loyola. I did a bunch of work on the fuel and ignition systems in that car a few years ago when Louie had an upholstery shop in El Segundo. Louie parted out an R2 powered GT Hawk to get the engine. The car is kind of a low level rocket ship as it doesn't weigh much. Bud

          Very interesting car. I remember seeing a '32 Ford roadster when I was at Bonneville several years ago that had a Studebaker V-8 with multiple (four I think) carbs

            Buy the rod for the R-2 motor, stick a bowtie in it, and flip it to fund your next Studebaker project.

              A long time ago I was poking around in a salvage yard looking for parts for my '54 Willys coupe. I found a similar Willys, opened the hood and there sat a Studebaker V-8. And, back when I lived in Hawaii, my next door neighbor installed a '59 Lark V-8 in his Jeep pickup. He sought out the Studebaker engine because he was convinced that Studebaker V-8s were the best.

                And then there's the Corvette with the Champion flathead six!
