The construction of the 1953 Studebaker is still underway. Things are starting to come together.  John.

Looking good!

The driveshaft protective tunnel has been welded and is CM.  Most of the electrical work is complete.  The switchbox is mounted on the upper roll cage and the bracket next to the driver cage is for a data recorder.  John.

John;

In an emergency can you hit the OFF switches for the ignition and fuel without hitting the starter?

Neilo.

That is the way the switches are set up.

Thanks for the thoughts.

If your question is about the frame, it is an epoxy primer. The parallel portion of the frame is original Studebaker.  The frame will be final painted as soon as I finish a few chassis items.

Well, right now Raymond Loewy wouldn't recognize it, but you'll take care of that eventually.
Good luck with the build and your racing.

Aircap.

TNXs.  The car body is all steel, as stock as possible, no customizing, a standard FG hood, air dam, bumpers, truck lid, in Bonneville trim (Moon discs/etc.).  If it ever gets finished, and it is starting to get there, hope to take it to a National Studebaker Show. I ordered the 3rd member and axles today.

Steve Kramer of Pasadena, Maryland built the car and has put forth considerable personal effort - a stellar TIG welder.  I did not build the car.  The car is now at my house for more work, but the difficult fabrications are mostly finished, I hope.

It will be a basic Classic Gas Altered with a small-SBC, which is being planned as we speak.
