Studebaker Street Rod Project
Just got a 1947 studebaker land cruiser, with sucide doors. Would like to make a street rod. What is the best way to go about this? Would like a Chevy Drive train, tilt up front in, Later model front and rear suspension. Should I get a donor car, if so what type? Or get after market front and rear? I do not have a lot of money, so will have to do it in stages. What would be the best way to do it in stages? Have anyone out there done up a studebaker street rod, if so would appreciate any helpful hints, especially what not to do!! I need to rewire the car, the electrical is shot, what is the best wiring kit for her? I'm thinking of a 350 Chevy with 350 transmission, Would this work, or should I go with something smaller? Will not be racing her, just car shows and week end outtings. I'm member of Temecula Valley Car Club, have a weekly cruise, the second saturday of each month at Siggy's Restraurant, of Jefferson in Temecula, CA. You are all welcome to the cruise night, No entry fees, Trophies, 50/50 Raffle, Good time for all, This old studebaker runs, so I will be taking it to the cruise nights. Thanks, for all the help.
