    Thanks for the positive comments....the "theme" is nothing more than what would Studebaker have done if they had not taken the plunge . I have always loved the 53's style so the exterior is mostly untouched, except for perhaps shaving a few badges and relocating the gas filler. The interior is mostly Mercedes with a few Studebaker accents.

    To the walgamuth's question....it really is quite simple, undo all the bits attached to the frame and lift the body off....X member drops right in.

    Beautiful car! I like all the attention to detail. What would you call your theme ? Or era simulated ? Is it a resto mod to you? Beautiful car !

    Lovely. I like the period look with the wire wheels. It would be awesome if it had a period Caddy engine.
