  • 52 4 door hardtop

    I can't help noticing any 52 model Studebaker that turns up. This one on ebay is certainly different. A chopped 4 door converted to a pillarless hardtop is definitely unique. I wonder about the support for the center door post and the decision to build a two piece windshield. What do you think? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Studebaker-C...m=252455552832

    Not a whole lot of point in the rear window. I myself do not like the looks of a car with this much chop. Makes the body look to big. If a guy was to section the body it would look a lot nicer but then you had best get a life.

      I think one reason for the split windshield is the Car has been widened!
      I presume to fit a modern full sized chassis.

      The Rear Window looks terrible like a Old Convertible, and ruins the Concept of the Car, to build a 4 door HARDTOP.

      I wonder what was wrong with using the Stock Tail lights, the custom made ones are exactly the same design, just odd shaped.

        Why do you think it is widened? The frame looks stock although it has a rack and pinion steering and maybe (?) a different front suspension.
