This car is used mainly for the PSMCDR held in Michigan each year but is driven some on the street.
After running it a few years at the PSMCDR, we decided to have it "certified" to verify it is stock. Before having it certified, the best time was 13.4's. After certification it ran 13.30.
The engine is bored .060" to 299" (PSMCDR allows .070" overbore) with 9.0 to 1 compression, cast iron factory headers, 2 1/2" exhaust with straight through mufflers, front disc power brakes, T-10 close ratio four speed, Dana 44 Twin Traction 4.55 rear, front and rear sway bars, radius bars, tachometer, 160 mph speedometer, reclining front bucket seats, etc.
Some of the outstanding features of the Studebaker engines include forged cranks, rods, and rockers, gear driven cam (no chain), thick cylinder walls, and shaft mounted rockers.
