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.

1949 Studebaker Champion
Here's an outstanding survivor Studebaker that has only been owned by one
family! The car has only 58k original miles on it and it definitely shows!
It's powered by a 169ci flathead in-line 6 cylinder and a 3-on-the-tree
manual transmission with overdrive. This one came with a hill-holder
clutch that still works! Under the hood it has had the radiator refurbished
with a new cap and hoses, a new fuel pump, and a new 6 volt battery. Other
than that, it's ALL stock! It has super nice interior that's been
tastefully restored with stock style upholstery on the seats and door
panels, a new front carpet kit, and a gorgeous unmolested dashboard with
all working gauges! Behind the seat it has a really cool alligator skin
trunk compartment separator, the starter button is under the clutch pedal,
it has a very nice headliner, a working dome light, and even the wipers
work! It's got nice glass, original bumpers and trim in good condition, the
original gray paint has cool patina, and there are side vents to cool you
while you drive! The Champion sits on the stock wheels with hub caps and
new 205/75/15 tires, it has SUPER NEAT body lines, and is very rare
especially in this condition! It starts, runs, and drives amazingly well!

Robin Judd 1959 Studebaker - 6.01 second drag race
Robin Judd and his hard working crew achieved their personal best time at
the Perth Motorplex this afternoon when they ran a great 6.01 second
personal best ET over the ¼ mile reaching 240.00 mph (386 kmh). Judd's
popular 1959 Studebaker literally catapulted from one end of the racetrack
to the other on the pass, and it is a credit to him and his team for all of
their dedicated work, late nights, and hard efforts to achieve the result.
Judd has become a serious threat and competitor in the popular Australian
Top Doorslammer bracket for many years now, and has eliminated some of the
biggest players in the game with his Studebaker. The car is powered by a
511 cubic inch Keith Black engine and produces around 3500 horsepower, and today at the
Perth Motorplex, everything just came together for the team making the
"perfect run". The clutch settings were 100%, the fuel and ignition
tune-ups were perfect, and the correct suspension settings helped
everything to just come together to help the car to "squat", and perform to
its best pass ever.
Judd ran 1.028 seconds to the 60 ft timers, 2.67 to the 330 ft, 3.971 to
the 660 ft half-track at 190.85 mph (307 kmh), and 5.076 to the 1000 ft
mark, before finally stopping the quarter mile timers in 6.015 seconds.
Judd receives support from William Buck Chartered Accountants, Melville
Panel and Paint, Myaree Trimmers, Applied Automotives, Genie Exhausts, Automotive Sports Engineering,
Westnet, WA Diffs, Stripemaster, Australian Drag Racing Magazine and Crane
Cams. Judd would also like to thank his hard working crew and Crew Chief
Lee Brailsford, James and Stuart Rowland, Eric and Frank Gauderi, Andrew
Fowler, Les Davenport, his reverse gear, his family, the race-fans for
their continued support, and the Perth Motorplex.
