From Kustomrama
Jump to: navigation, search

1948 Studebaker owned by Max Bodkins. The grille was made with parts from a 1949 Cadillac. The hood and doors were shaved for unnecessary chrome to achieve a cleaner appearance. The car was lowered up front 4 inches by reversing the spring. In the rear, the frame was stepped, and six inch lowering blocks were installed, giving it the right stance.[1]
