To the best of my historical findings Woodward and Bolitho had the fastest one way pass with a stock bodied stude at 253 in the late 80's with a 300 blown hemi on fuel. Doug Cook was tuning it then. Neil Thompson has the fastest stude based vehicle that ran in the very high 200's.

  Yeah...Niel Thompson who ran close to 300 mph back in the dark ages, light years ahead of time.

  Not sure of date our speeds but it was long ago.

Dallas rooted to the source. While the history is nice, the question is ON the SALT in 2011.

Stainless, just Bob Bourke designed '53 - '54, or whatever years that encompasses.

An interesting question especially for those stuck on Studebakers and with a little curve on your question, it seems to be Charles timed at 177-mph for the 1-mile at Maxton.

John. 

Thanks John, but I think they are asking for speed at Bonneville for the first timed mile,,, not the standing mile,,,

FYI,, that 177 record will fall soon,,, I am planning on over 200 at Loring in Sept and then again a week later at Maxton..

Back to DW's questions,,, I would like to know too !!!.... Gives my little N/A E motor something to aspire to.

Charles.

Hope to see you go 200-mph in the Maxton-Loring-Ohio venue!   A great milestone for a Studebaker even if it has alredy been done.

Pavement LSR and salt LSR are different

200 in a full bodied car is really remarkable. As we do it or see it done all the time we lose the respect for the achievement it represents.

Don't normally post anything here but since you're on the subject of Studes - I will. I probably have the slowest of all the Studes that ran at Speedweek but I venture that I had as much fun as anyone at Speedweek this year. For the record, the old flathead went a best of 156.066 on a 156.701 record. Maybe one day the Slippery Stude will get a bigger motor so we can play with you fast boys.Thanks for all the nice comments and I would like to say it was a pleasure to meet Dr. Goggles in person! A fine gentleman. Also had the pleasure of meeting Hooley who stopped by our pit. Glad I asked him his name otherwise I would never have known. So many really nice and helpful people. Can't wait to get back.

Gord,  great looking car and great speeds,,, from one Stude guy to another,,, JOB WELL DONE.

I too am not one of those "fast guys" you mention as I have old school small motor stuff,,, but you are right at any speed we can all have fun.

Hope to see you when I get to the salt next year.

Hello Gord.

Your car is a beauty!  I have been following your progress along the way.

It is a long haul, but would love to see you come east one of these days.  I claim the slowest 53 Studebaker, about 1-mph rolling it in and out of the garage.

Gord,

You were not the slowest(best looking maybe) that honor went to The Hudson Boys, Skip Carlson with 2 records around 138. They put the Turkburger  2 cylinder car(32+ MPH) on the trailer by 100 MPH.

Hey, you made the ERC shirt, that is an honor in itself.

DW, I understand your question about only 2011 Studes. You remember I ran 248 in 09 and had oil pan problems in impound and the backup run. Too bad you didn't include 2009 events. I hope you get to see Jack White at WOS.
