          Yup. That's the relatively rare Studebaker signal seeking radio for 58-60 cars. I have only seen two others. Thanks for the pic.

                      It's a trick question if you look carefully it is in the back ground of all 4 pictures.

                        Making progress slow but sure, major bodywork completed and primed.

                            The project is still in progress and moving forward. Just picked up a few extra parts. Needed one but could not pass up on the lot. You never know you might need a spare or two. Click image for larger version

                              Besides Packards, these have been used on many customs.

                                I picked up an Avanti console frame off of ebay from a very nice seller. I'm looking at different options for installing a console in the 58 J Body Hard Top. While they did not come with an option for a console I thought one from an Avanti would be the closest thing to what the Studebaker Packard Corp would of installed in this car. Just toying with different ideas and concepts right now. I want to try make it look "period" correct. Thoughts and suggestions welcome !
