The '52s are the least common of that era, the last year of that body style before the Loewy coupes came out in '53. Most folks who like that body style want a 50-51 bullet nose. '52 was also the 100th Anniversary of Studebaker Corporation. That's a neat car with a great history, the West Coast version of the Chicken Hawk.

The engine is a Studebaker V8, bored out to 307 cubic inches.  Studebaker high performance motors in the early 60s were known as "R" motors.  R1 was 289 cu in with 10.5-1 compression and 240 HP, R2 was a similar motor with slightly lower compression and a Paxton Supercharger rated at 289 hp.  The R1 and R2 motors are the most common Stude HiPo motors often found in Avantis.  R3 and R4 Motors were all assembled by Granatelli Bros. They were bored to 304.5 cu in and had special large port and valve heads, cast iron exhaust headers, aluminum intakes and more radical cams among other things.  They were very limited production.  R3s also had a Paxton supercharger and were rated at 335 hp, R4s were naturally aspirated with higher compression and two 4 barrels rated at 280 hp.  The really bad a$$ Studes you see at the PSMCDR are R2s and R3s. Anyway, the motor in that car started as an R4 replacement or "crate" motor and has been run in various configurations.  Just as a side note, all Studebaker V8s have forged cranks and solid lifters.  The standard motors have pretty restrictive heads, that is one reason they elected to use supercharging for higher performance.

The Stude engines are very stout and have a very unique exhaust note. Aw damn, now I want another Stude!

Ah, she was a "Lark Regal" 2 door sedan. The unfinished project I should have kept.

I had a sweet 4bbl 259 to put in it (it was originally a 6 cyl car)

I couldn't believe the abundance of NOS parts still out there for my cars. There was a local fellow who is a Stude Guru. If you own a Studebaker you've probably heard of "Silvertone Exhaust". He custom bends exhaust systems for all Studebakers. He sold me this NOS seat upholstery

He also sold me a correct, rebuilt T-10

More NOS goodies

NOS DOGGIES!

One NOS rear 1/4, another rust free one. They bolt on! Notice the NOS header panel. All priced at a fraction of what you'd pay for "Big 3" NOS  parts

Jewelry

Grille surround:

Headlight doors:

NOS Door panels!

I met an old guy near Hamilton who worked at Studebaker back in the day. He sold me these Pre-production guages!

The tag says "As per blueprint 63V" (63V was the model line)

Another tag:

These were a bit harder to find. NOS taillight lenses

4 speed conversion parts including a NOS 4 speed hump..

Rear 1/4 unbolted and removed. Neat eh? The fleet guys loved these cars due to their ease of serviceability. 

I picked this little 64 Sedan up cheap and drove it daily for a while

Hamilton built

All Hamilton built Stude's got white steering wheels. 

Every 64 Stude got this sticker on the windshield

Funky "vanity" glove box with storage tray and lift out mirror.

\

This Hamilton built '65 Daytona was also purchased from the old fella who worked at Studebaker. Too far gone to restore, it was a super rare car.

It had a factory 283 (Chevy) with a Borg Warner automatic and a Dana 44 twin traction rear end. The rear end was pulled for my '63. It also had transistorized ignition. It would have been a sweet car when new! I paid $75 for it.

Ok, now I really miss my Studebakers. cry
