Studebaker Woody Fastback Custom at SEMA from Eastwood
Check out this interview from SEMA 2013 in Las Vegas. The guys from
Eastwood get an up close look at the amazing '51 Stude Woody that was built
by Hill's Rod & Custom in California. It features incredible wood work as
well as a 390 cid Ford Edsel V8 with a rare injection system that was
designed by aircraft engineers and featured on the cover of Hot Rod
magazine in 1959. This was one of the most popular cars at SEMA and we're
sure you'll be impressed after you watch the video.
Eastwood has everything you need to do the job right when you're restoring
your car, truck or motorcycle - welders, plasma cutters, powder coating
supplies, abrasive blasters and media, hand tools, rust solutions, paint
and paint guns, specialty paints and coatings, metal fab tools and more!

1955 Studebaker Commander 2dr GrnWht
Interesting V8 coupe by Studebaker. 1955 left Studebaker somewhat behind
in the styling trends..they were still working with the Lowey coupe, but
their rivals had moved beyond, including wraparound windshields. That was
an extremely sensitive point..cars without the new wraparound windshields
were at a competitive disadvantage...including the 55 Lincoln which would
adopt one in 56. We had a 54 Champion of the same green color. The heater
