John,

What kind of rear frame rails did you use?  How did you attach what looks like 2x4 rear rails to the stock frame rails ? Extra brace or plates ?   My 53 stock frame is very thin metal (.078  vs newer .120 wall tubing)

John,  that is a great plan,, have fun and enjoy the process.  The design, the build, the re-do's, then the actual running... I agree I enjoyed the entire process with the Vicky and had lots of help, both hired professionals, friends and volunteers.. But once we ran for and got a few records last year, the bug had bit me hard and I wanted records on the "SALT",, knowing that the Vicky met the objective it was designed for and that that body style would not handle well or have the slick areo needed foe 212 mph + at Bonneville, the search was on and now I / we are in the midst of the Studebaker build,,, Oh my but record fever hit me with the new Vicky motor and yesterday on the second pass on the new motor it had a problem,,, I am hoping it will not cost much and didn't tear up to much inside her,,,, a big repair bill will set the Stude build back again....

Keep up the good work and keep us all posted,,,,

Thanks for sharing,

Charles

The measuring stick for this car is not so much seeking a record but overall entertainment value, gathering with friends, and versatility. The car has several purposes, e.g., racing, tools, working in the garage, bench racing, etc.  What I am doing is not what is necessarily needed for Bonneville. 

Safety is VERY high on the list especially because our younger daughter thinks she wants to drive it.

Ultimately if the car performs, then we might see how fast it will really go - we are only in the early stages and have already made concept adjustments.  Jeff Jacobs, an LSR friend commented about enjoying the car for today not always about tomorrow.  These are good words - the construction has been great even though I am over budget on everything I have touched on this car.  New racers take close note, at least 2X is the commerce watchword.

Warmest regards.
John.


John, there ya go again, working yourself into the salt trap most of us have been caught in...  rolleyes
The first year Hooley came out with his Stude, he said they just wanted to make a run going 200.... then the hook was set....
Remember if you are not over budget by a 0 you are still within Bonneville specs....
Keep posting pics,
Be safe, have fun, go fast
See ya on the salt  cool

Great progress and keep showing the pics.  The more we share the better we can all do!

I do have a question though.  You said you want to run gas coupe class, and the rear frame is in the same location for that.  But if it does not have the same shape (yours is taller over the rearend) could you be in for trouble?  Just curious as you may want to get clarification from the rules guys.

John, I meant the frame not the body.  I see in the general discussion section you asked for clarification on the frame question.  Like I said, check with the rules committee chair person for gas coupe.  Always best to get direct answer before you get too far along.  Just trying to help.  If you really do need a full factory frame, you could substitute a later year frame which is thicker.
