        I like it. Not your run of the mill rod.

          The car belongs to Louie Loyola who owns an auto interior shop in the South Bay area. I did some work on the fuel and ignition systems in the car a few years ago. The R2 engine makes that Model A plenty fast. Bud

            Luis Loyola is the way they spelled it on a link from Hagerty. The piece was about his upholstery work, but they showed the interior and a low shot of the front of his roadster. I recognized it as the one having the Studebaker engine from a magazine article some time ago. It is always neat to see Studebaker muscle in a traditional hot rod.

              Looks to be backed up by an automatic trans of some type.

                Stude engines in 'hod rod' Fords...?

                Made me think of the 'his and hers' pair I saw at the Los Angeles Winter Meet back in March of 2013~

                One of them had 'R NONE' stamped on the flat where the block's s/n would be...

                  Dean Moon, founder of Moon Equipment Co. was running his Studebaker V-8 powered 1934 Ford on the streets and at Bonneville in the early '50s

                    There was a local (Glenham, NY) guy that had a Studebaker V8 powered Model A roadster in the '50s - '60s. He was a medical doctor and a Studebaker guy, including buying a new 1962 Hawk (as well as a new Imperial Crown Coupe every four years). He didn't put many miles on them because his office was in his home and the hospital was about three miles away. My 1967 Crown Coupe was the one that he bought new. He bought and traded the Imperials at a C-P-D dealer almost in sight of his home. The Studebaker dealer was about four miles away.
