Terrific car, my daily driver. I started to rebuild this two years ago. There is zero rust on the car, the only rust there was initially was on the passenger side floor board, I replace it. I have put about 5000 miles on the car since I rebuilt the engine.
Zero rust, great original chrome, here is what I did to the car:
Rebuilt the engine, new rings, bearings, valve job.
Set up one wire alternator instead of generator (New Alternator)
New water pump.
New fuel pump, added two filters (input and output).
Installed all new brake lines.
New master cylinder
New wheel cylinders
New front end and king pins and bushings, shocks.
New paint job, two tone.
Installed 3 speed tranny with overdrive, came with plain 3 speed, no overdrive.
Installed new clutch, new pressure plate, new throw-out bearing.
Brand new radio (over $200.00) installed but I dont use it. I put it in only for looks, instead I installed an amplifier with four speakers that allows me to use my mp3/iTouch/Bluetooth.
Totally newly upholstered seats, front and back.
Totally newly upholstered door panels, front and back.
Totally newly upholstered padded dash.
New carpet throughout.
New carpeted trunk.
ISSUES OR NOT-COMPLETED ON REBUILD:
Did not install head-liner
Cracked windshield but it doesnt bother me to drive daily.
Driver side door crank needs replacing.
THIS IS THE BEST PRICED DEAL ON ANY STUDEBAKER, EVERYTHING IS IN TERRIFIC SHAPE, PRACTICALLY ALL NEW!
