    To whom it may concern: build up/drop in a 259/289 if said Stude is going to be a daily driver but stash the original 232 away (if said vehicle is sold or is going to be a show car only).

    "Do they all not, by mere virtue of having survived as relics of a bygone era, amass a level of respect perhaps not accorded to them when they were new?"

    Sold my 1962; Studeless at the moment

      If it is original Stude parts you want to run, get a set of good used standard 259 pistons and have your block bored to 3-9/16". They can be had cheap. You can use your same crank & rods. While you are at it, install a pair of milled 259 heads & you will have a good running car with the orig block!
