Studebaker US6 "Frozen In Time" (Engine Overhaul)
In the summer of 2009 this 1945 Studebaker US6 was brought back to life and
driven 75 miles back to civilization after being abandoned in the remote
Alaskan wilderness and "frozen in time" for two decades. Now in June 2013
the old war horse is getting some much needed TLC and a new lease on life.
This truck was built on May 23, 1945 -the day Himmler commits suicide.

Brenda's Studebaker burns it up!
OK in most sports men and women compete separately, segregated. But in
motor sports that's not the case, two cars, two drivers face off and may
the best person win. But there is more to racing than just competing. This
is Brenda in her Studebaker. She's a trophy winner with her Model-T.
Twin Turbo Studebaker 2009 Dyno Session
After installing upgraded turbochargers
from www.timsturbos.com, we're back on
the chassis dynamometer to retune for the new power.
The car currently holds a SCTA Record at Bonneville for Altered Coupes
running 500" or greater, forced induction engines: 241mph. It only needs
another 5mph to qualify for entry into the 200mph Club at Bonneville, which
is a difficult accomplishment.
Thus, We added exactly 100hp and 100 ft-lbs of torque to the wheels, this
time carrying it all the way to 7000RPM.
This is a 515 cubic inch Merlin Big Block chevy. Megasquirt EFI with
150lb/hr injectors, a pair of modified GT38 turbochargers, external wastegates, custom

Turbo MegaSquirt Studebaker gets a record @ SpeedWeek 2008
Gary Hart and crew (Mike and Richard Collison along with Mike's wife
Shirley, Gary's wife Sandy, and Jerry Hoffmann) headed back out to the land
of wide open salt at Bonneville Raceway this year for SpeedWeek 2008 to try
again for the AA/BGALT record, and this time Gary brings it home! Check

with overlay of the radio calls made of the times as they were called out.
The car is a 53 Studebaker with a 515ci big-block Merlin and twin Garrett
turbo's. Put down just over 700whp and
about 750wtq on a MustangDyno at 10psi and we
had the Boost at 13.5psi for this
record run so you could add another 100 or so to both of those numbers, at

1961 STUDEBAKER HAWK SPORTS COUPE " SOLD " Drager's International Classic Sales 206-533-9600
The Studebaker had style. 1961 was the last year for the fins. Look at the
front end. Note the separation between fenders and the hood. These cars
were low and sleek. Everywhere I drive this car people stop and ask
questions and give the thumbs up or wave. When is the last time you saw
one? This is one beautiful car. The Studebaker has only 59,000 miles. Check
out the original interior. Note the "Fasten Seat Belts" sign on the
dashboard. The man I bought the Studebaker from had the hood come up while
driving and it promped him to restore the outside. He spent about $15,000
with new paint and chrome. It's beautiful. I have a great book he put
together with all the bills. The engine is a 259 V-8. Automatic
transmission. The Studebaker has Twin Traction rear end or positraction.
Manual steering and brakes. The only thing I had to do to this car was
install a new water pump. I just got this in and I've only had a chance to
drive it about 100 miles. I really like the way it drives. The only change
I would make to this car would be to add radial tires. Old School Garage
has serviced and safety checked it for your driving pleasure. Cond. # 2-.
