|Studebaker Street Rods
A web site dedicated the the preservation and restoration of modified and customized Studebaker Cars and Trucks-E-mail me for more info-See my other web site www.oldcarappraisal.com Welcome to my web-page--
It will take me a while to build up my links but hopefully this will again be a site to find out about the Hot Rod Studes as they used to call them.
Also this site will occasionally focus on cheap and affordable project Studebaker cars and trucks; I will continue to peruse the ads and hopefully find something for everyone.
|My name is Myno Van Dykeand I have been a member of the Studebaker Drivers Club for 25 years Owned at least 30 or so Studebakers and in the last ten years or so started modifying them. We own a modified and slightly customized '58 Scotsman 2 door sedan.; Have a look at the photo- those fins were not on the car originally.. This '39 replica Studebaker Coupe Express is a nice ride too and you can buy a complete glass kit for one now- have a look at this one. See my story on how to put BMW seats in your Stude..Here is the finished rear seat here is the story link..|

|Local Stude enthusiast Ian Graham (and owner of Graham's Garage in Haydon, Ontario-just brought home this '50 Commander Starlite Coupe-(had the bigger engine so the front clip is a bit longer.. it had been parked in an airplane hanger for 25 years. Needs a lot of TLC but lots of potential- Ian wants to sell it-call him at 905-263-8172 (east of Toronto, Ont.|
|Just got back from the big Studebaker Driver's Club National Meet in South Bend Indiana (June/07) . Great turnout - lots of Avanti's and Packards showed up to- guestimates are about 800-1000 cars and lots of people. The new South Bend National Museum is simply awesome! Had to go back a second time- congratulations to the City of South Bend for building one of the best car museums in the world.. Also lots of modified Studes there.. I took a bunch of photos and will upload them shortly. My friend Ian Graham drove his modified '37 Coupe Express and we went to drag races at Osceola - It took Ian a few tries to get the hang of it but on the last run he beat this 64 Lark R2 Stude- the Coupex hit 94 mph in the quarter-nice work Ian..|
|'38 Commander- Custom outside the Studebaker Museum|
|The Packard people were not impressed but I really liked this '54 (I think) Packard converted to a pickup..|
|I am sure a few Hawk owners were alsonot impressed but you gotta love this '57 or so Hawk also made into a pickup|
|Here is a '50 or so pickup with an older Jeep wagon grafted onto the rear- What a Woody Wagon!!!|
