    The valance panel between the bumper and grills is also a nice addition to a 1950 model. Click image for larger version  Name:	valance.jpg Views:	0 Size:	72.8 KB ID:	1837119

    Thought some of you would like to see how I did the gas door/taillight used a six inch ram to push the light out.

    Seats are made and sold from a guy out of Louisville Ky. They are a no power seat. I made the power frame and motor placements myself. Trying to keep it as low as I could. Then used the original covers off the bottom of the front set to cover all the workings. The front bumper is three different bumpers cut and welded together. It originally had a flat spot for a license plate.

    What are the front seats out of? Are they from a production car, or are they Racaro or...?

    Interesting how the rear bumper is 50 Commander and the front bumper is 49 Commander.

    A cool car and rarely does one rod a 50 Commander.

    Yes did make a tack out out the dummy. All the gauges have been covered to electrical. The air cleaner was one of them ideas that everyone told me would look bad. I almost left it the stock colors. But I chicken out. Car drives like a dream. I need to post the drivers side taillight. It’s the gas door now.

    Is that what I think it is?
    There are NUMBERS 0 to 8 at the bottom of the Clock Dummy! That would be a really creative way to build a discrete Tach!

    I am guessing that the Stock 100 MPH Speedo might not be quite enough though!

    That and the Stock Air Cleaner used to feed some kind of Modern Engine is way COOL!

    Awesome!
    As others have offered - thank you for sharing and let me know when she tires of it!

    I really love the seats and center console. I sure how we live far apart because I am stealing your design for my 50 Commander.

    I know it is no the same car, but here is another '50 Studebaker, in Taylor, Texas, back in the day...

    The next to last picture makes that front look soooo long. I know there are 18” longer than the Champ, but just beautiful.
