        Fully boxed frame ???
        Restored ???
        Wonder how they did the windshield wipers with the notch in the firewall. That I'd be interested in seeing.

        It's got some nice work.

            That is a nice ride indeed. Now when being judged is it modified with Studebaker engine or modified with non-Studebaker engine. If it were mine though it would not matter because I'd be too busy driving it to have it judged.

                So were a lot of '56 Golden Hawk parts swapped in to bolt up that engine and trannie?
                1963 Champ "Stu Bludebaker"- sometimes driver
                1957 Silver Hawk "Josie"- picking up the pieces after an unreliable body man let it rot for 11 years from an almost driver to a basket case
                1951 Land Cruiser "Bunnie Ketcher" only 47M miles!
                1951 Commander Starlight "Dale"- basket case
                1947 Champion "Sally"- basket case
                1941 Commander Land Cruiser "Ursula"- basket case

                  Gm transmission and Ford rear end so he really wouldn't need any Golden Hawk specific parts. Under the skin, it's just a hot rod with a really cool engine choice.

                    Definitely NOT "restored". Totally customized.

                    That being said, it is a great job other than color choice. (IMO)

                      Agreed. I like the colour they used on the frame. AMT molded a 40 Ford Pickup kit in that colour. Would look great on a Connie.

                        Having it professionally built cost the seller every bit of $85,000. However, finding another buyer with $85K who wants a Conestoga with a Packard V8 may not happen.
