    Here is a link with the Phantom Front Suspension kit info.

    Roy -It says the kit will fit '51 and up. Not sure what is so different about '50 and earlier cars. Maybe some others could shed some light on this?
    '51-66 cars (actualy, also including the early Chevy powered Avanti II's) have essentially the same suspension. '50 and earlier cars don't share any of the front suspension parts of the '51-66 cars.

      Roy, that kit will not fit a '50. The 50's front suspension is way different in layout.[V]

      Miscreant at large.

      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        Roy:

        Mr. Biggs can comment on this better than me, but the 1950 is a one year only setup, both front suspension, brakes etc. I am almost sure that the kit will not fit.

          The Tremec TKO 500 and 600 transmissions have the same bolt pattern as the Ford toploader which is different than the T5's.

          Looks like you have an interesting project going. When do you expect to finish it?

            Hey 64Avanti -I hope to have the car together by Spring. Then I'll probably spend the remainder of my life making it perfect!
