• Really cool and unique build. looks like it would actually handle very well.
    But damn those funky air filters, it's like drinking an In and Out shake from a coffee stir stick!

  • Might be the first '53 I've ever looked at the second time. Very possibly be a third or forth time before the day is out….

  • Really interesting and attractive rendition of a Plymouth Prowler using just enough bits from a 53'Studie to be able to reference the fact.

  • Nice build, and different from so many other hot rods. In the EBay listing there is a photo of the passenger side of the engine (I did not insert it, cuz it is too large, and I don't want to be "that guy"):


    Can anyone identify that metal canister that is hose-clamped onto the front header tube? Can you say "heat transfer"?

  • @Bob – looks like that canister is likely an oil catch can / separator for the crankcase ventilation system.

    Vince – in 1953 Studebaker did make both wagons and pickups, so the tailgate could've conceivably been taken from one or the other. However the Studebaker script tailgate doesn't look like anything they offered in the early '50s. I really like the concept and most of the execution on this little hot rod. If only they had used Miata front/rear subframes & suspension, and maybe this tailgate:

  • So in the event that you see a hot tub with similar parts in the tub yet with a distinction sticker price it just implies that the merchant is profiting as a rule. lay z spa repair kit
