Anyone Drive a Studillac?

Recommended Posts

Did anyone every drive a Studillac? It seems that in the model years 1953-1955, Studebaker offered a Cadillac engine and transmission in its Starliner hardtop for $1500 extra. The upscale dual-range Hydramatic was another $500.

In 1962, I bought a 1955 Studiallac.

I just always figured it was done AFTERMARKET.

It had the dual range HydroMatic and three dueces.

It was wicked fast for it's day.

At that time, JC Whitney offered a conversion for that

They also had a kit for a Ford engine.

I had no idea that it was a factory conversion.

Thanks for the info.

Here is some interesting info on it. I did not know that this car existed, my Dad used to love the Studebaker, now I know why. We had a 331 engine in our 55 Fleetwood.
