"Studebaker"     1940 Studebaker Commander

Introduction / Overview: 1940 Studebaker Commander Business Coupe. Picked this up out of Illinois as a project that somebody started, but never finished. I've pretty much been spending my time undoing everything that was done so I can re-do it my way.
Drivetrain: Small block Chevy 350 bored .030 over. Lots of little HP scavenging tricks hidden inside. It will be a good efficient street motor. Rebuilt TH-350 auto trans. Might change out to a 700R4 for the overdrive later on. Pontiac Firebird posi rearend with street gear.
Chassis: Stock for now. Plan on either adding a mustang II or doing frame swap or subframe. Still researching.
Wheels and Tires:

Nothing special

Body & Paint:

Yep, have a body... paint...kinda.

Interioir: Pretty much bare. S-10 bench seat, Lokar shifter. Dash will be red or gold heavy metal flake and will be heavily customized.
