Description for Studebaker Champion 1954

Studebaker never made a 2-seater convertible, ut given the results of this project, hey sure should have.
I'm guessing this 1954 Studebaker Champion was customized in the '70's or 80's given the choice of interior carpet and seats. The roof has been removed, t has been lowered 3-4", nd shortened 18".It is not in show car condition. Structurally, nd mechanically, t is very sound, ith no rust, ut the finishing details leave a bit to be desired. All of the hard work has been done, nd this is a great candidate for someone to finish off into a rare beauty.
As far as I can tell, he VIN tag on the engine identifies it as a '63 or '64 289.
It comes with an unfinished metal hardtop. The way it attaches to the car, he seals and gaskets, tc., ave not been completed.
I came upon the car in barn in rural Virginia, wned by an older gentleman. I'm not sure how long he owned it, ut it was covered in dust and bird crap. Flat tires, eized brakes, ld gas, ead battery...the usual stuff. I did some carburetor work, ebuilt the brakes, ew alternator, leaned it up. It is titled and registered in my name, nd I have been driving around on weekends the last few months. Turns lots of heads, nd most folks need to ask me what the heck it is.
