I just purchased a 1949 Studebaker Commander. It had gone through a frame off restoration back in the 80's.
It currently has a Packard 289 engine.
I know absolutely nothing about Studeys, so any and all advice is greatly appreciated.
It has been sitting in a garage for a few years, and was always kept either in his paint shop or garage.
The body is in great shape, no rust. The interior looks like new.
This is going to be resurrected into a cool street gasser.
I already have a Chevy 454 and Muncie M20 just waiting to go in it.
My plans include a straight axle, fenderwell headers, tunnel ram, cool 60's wheels, and pie crust slicks.
I will be bringing it home in a couple days. I'll take some pictures and post them.
I cant wait to get started transforming this bitchin hot rod.
