    Thanks for you and your brother's help in getting it to Indiana. It sure looks a lot different. I was able to use the original speedometer and oil pressure gauge. It took a lot of time to finish but was well worth it.

      'Looking good, Barry; congratulations.

      I, too, like the Speedster dash...was that one removed from your Dad's rusty '55 Speedster he ran at Newport Hill until it was too dangerous to do so? IIRC, he parted the car out...and the serial number plate and body tag have undoubtedly been reincarnated by now on a lesser '55 that magically become an authentic Speedster!

      Yes, close-ups of your grille fabrication / arrangement would be appreciated; it looks like a good idea.

      If you can get a close-up of the Possum Smasher graphic on the deck lid, I think everyone would enjoy seeing it.

      Do I recognize the tailgate on which the Speedster dash is resting before installation?

      'Hope you are doing well. BP
      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      Ayn Rand:
      "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

        The dash was from Searcy, Arkansas. Delivered to the Studebaker Drags in July, 2020. It was very used. Paint and vinyl overlay was used to freshen it up. The overlay does not have that cheap prism look. Pretty convincing machine turned look to it.

        Yes, you did recognize the tailgate of pickup. Thanks again for the hook-up.

        I will dig up some photos of the grille fabrication. Looking back, I wish that more pics were taken during the build. It turned out better than I hoped for.
