    WOW, that's NICE! & welcome to the forum, nice to have one more European among us! & I see your're living down in a real nice part too.
    (I guess since you're more south European you'll do a total restoration with new paint & all? I would save that look thou...)

    Welcome, Christophe!
    And don't worry about your language. Your message is perfectly understandable.
    Most Americans don't speak English as well.

    '38 is a beautiful car. Another stunning example from the studios of Raymond Loewy.
    I believe there is a very active group of Studebakers in western Europe, France, Netherlands.

    Hello
    Normaly no, that i said me when i bought it but i hesitate between the last motor of a AVANTI, the small block, or change
    by a chevrolet 286ci (i remember) it's a profesionnal will change and ameliorate it. I prefer keep a new small block as AVANTI

    Hello
    Thank you for your message, effectively, if you go in France, don't forget to send me a email. I live in Dordogne, where the préhistoric men live a long time ago.
    For my commander 1938, i must remove a lot of think, paint as the same, motor and break and sellerie, because very endommaged.

    I think Christophe from Nancy, Lorraine might write something here also...?
    Anyway; I've lived in Holland from 2001 until Januari this year & they have a good part storage for Studebakers. (The Swedish club might probably be the biggest in Europe, loads of American cars here, long distances to drive sometimes...)
    Good Luck!
