The 1930 Studebaker


I had this when I lived in Tacoma Washington. I bought it in Gig Harbor and towed it home. I took the body off. Sandblasted the frame and body. Primed and painted the frame and primed the body. I searched for months all over the northwest for a grill and hood. found a hood at the Portland Oregon swap meet and found a grill near Billings Montana. The grill was from a 28 but it was real close to what the 30 looked like. The body had a bad job done on a rear side window and top fill so I had to repair those. The red interior was complete minus the headliner and carpet. I had the trunk that mounted on the back. I had just got a mustang 2 front end steering column and some gauges when I got laid off and found a job in Alaska. I could not take it with me so I dropped the body back on the frame and sold it. I sure would have liked to finished it I think it was going to be a nice looking ride.

If anyone has info on the car I would like to see pictures.


Here are a few pictures.
