    That Ranger box looks pretty good behind the Champ cab!

    But it doesn't say STUDEBAKER across the tailgate.

        I'll have to agree with Todd on this one. If someone asked me how a Ranger box would look on a 1960 Champ... i'm not sure how positive my answer would be. Seeing that box on the truck though... that's a different story. It flows a lot better with the lines of that Stude than it has a right too! I do think it would be cool if the next owner of the truck grafted older fashioned tail lights into it, and had someone press Studebaker into the tailgate skin. [8D] It still looks great the way it is though. I bet it took a lot of junkyard hopping to find a bed that would flow well with that Champ. Hat's off to the builder.[^]

                Especially since the drive train "only" has 34,000 on it.[?]

                    Is the "gap" between hood and grille normal for that years truck? Plus where is the interior?

                        Well, he hasn't put in the a/c yet, so the interior is only part of the problem.

                        I think it looks good, and once entertained an idea of using a "Splash" bed on an M series.

                            Geewhiz... the hood was probably left popped after he took the pic of the engine. I've done that one before and slapped myself on the forehead after I posted a car for sale.

                            Putting 2 and 2 together, he used the term "actual miles" incorrectly, and probably means that he's driven it 57 miles so far after the engine swap. Probably test and tune miles or like me, impatient gotta see what this thing can do miles.

                            The 34k miles on the engine probably means that he yanked it out of a late model car that had only 34k on the clock when it was wrecked.

                            Not sure if he'll get what he's asking but I still like it. I guess he could've gone into detail a bit more for some browsers. I know I would have just a little bit to avoid confusion.
