1953 Studebaker --- LS1 Project - Dec 24, 2005

In November 2005 I started a project to swap motors in our Custom 1953 Studebaker Starlight Coupe. The car had a '76 Chevy 350/T350 combo and ran just fine, but I wanted something different and decided to move from a 50 year old car with a 30 year old motor to a 50 year old car with a 5 year old motor. The LS1 and 4L60E overdrive automatic are from a 2000 Pontiac TransAm that had 9000 miles on it. I acquired the motor from a local rodder who had planned to put it in a '67 Camaro but had a change of plans due to health reasons. I was able to buy everything he had that was LS1 related for $4700. That seems like a lot, but I got a lot and have already sold off a number of things I won't need. Here are pictures of the car and the 350 that was in it.
