  • 1932 Studebaker Indy Racer lives

    Indy car startup - YouTube

    Studebaker Drivers Club member Gary Ash started with a Studebaker President inline 8 motor and a pair of frame rails in 2009. He fired it up Friday for the first time. The body and most of the work was done by Gary. About all that remains to do is the paint and upholstery.

      Here's the 13 page thread on the AACA Forum started in 2014... Lots of great quality pictures, with many long explanations and discussions. Gary basically learned fabrication in order to build this car.

            Gary is a great guy. I have spoken with him at various Studebaker gatherings. He indeed has done almost all the work himself. I believe he took classes in how to do the metal body work and other things he was not familiar with. Classes like these aren't found at you local community college but at places, some in England I believe, that work on the details of such a project. I can't wait to see the car in person.
