    My dad cracks me up when he says that... "Rob, can you look up some parts for my Studebaker on the interweb thing?"

    My dad use to have a convertible Studebaker. I still have the radio from it, but don't know if it works.

    My dad has a '46 Studebaker pickup.

    He took out the tranny alone to rebuild, and I think he could carry it easily. Olive drab, too, he thinks it was a WWII surplus tranny.

    He's currently doing a frame-up on it, but trying not to alter the motor at all. He might have to at this point, it's seized and he's been trying to free it up for 3 days with no luck... He's rebuilt about everything except the interior and the motor so far. The body is still primer, too, if I had the cash I'd buy him a paint job...

    I'm agonna search the interweb computer for a motor for him now...

    brother has a "stude"

    My older brother has a 42 Studebaker Champion...The tranny is about the size of a generator out of an old chevy!--I've seen riding mowers with bigger gearboxes!--its a nice car though,a bit weird perhaps,but many of the cars back then were still kinda primitive....

    Oh,and here near Baaahhhstin,we call it the "Compudahhh" :crazy:
