1951 Studebaker Champion Engine Revamp
SCCNSW member Scott had some issues with his Champion's engine, and needed
to give it some attention. While he was at it, he dressed it up a bit, and
gave it a little bit more performance in 2011.

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-.

1940 Studebaker Champion arriving at the Stude-Intl S. Bend headquarters
May 7, 2010 ride in a 1940 Studebaker to the new Studebaker International
South Bend headquarters (former Studebaker Aviation plant). Heading west on
Chippewa Avenue and north to the Studebaker Business Center. Studebaker
built military airplane engines and military trucks here beginning during
World War II. After Studebaker quit production of trucks, the facility was
occupied by the Kaiser Jeep Corporation for the continued production of
military trucks until American Motors Corporation purchased the Jeep and
truck operations from Kaiser Industries in 1970 which led to the formation
of AM General in 1971 by AMC for it's government contracts. Military and
USPS (mail delivery) Jeeps and Humvees were once produced here.
