The vibrant metallic paint, sleek body, cool stance, and a ton of custom details make this 1954 Studebaker Pickup distinctly awesome. But when you see that this full package is also built to be quite comfy, it all makes for an irresistible classic offered for quite a nice price.
<br><br> A Studebaker is always an interesting and rare sight, but this one has far more distinction than just the name on its side. After all, not only did Studebaker never offer purple for its pickups, but also there's a ton of metallic element in this one that really announces its something special. And while the straight sides of the truck bed remain quite factory, just about everything else was custom done for a sportier style. The front end is fully color matched, and includes a lightweight fiberglass louvered hood and large headlights that resemble a Porsche. The cab has had inches chopped out of the roof, and the door handles were expertly shaved. The rear has a classic Studebaker script, but the tall taillights and big dual exhaust tips really you this is more than just a classic cruiser. And when you look at the profile the large 17-inch Cragar SS wheels join the forward-leaning stance for a seriously sporty appearance.
<br><br> Pop the remote door openers to reveal a well-done custom interior. The exterior purple returns to accent the custom seating, Studebaker logo headrests, door tops, and carpet piping. It's joined by some cool/classic white tuck and roll inserts on the seat and door panels for a very vintage street machine attitude. There are classic items, like the dash panel and the heater installed under it. These are joined by nice upgrades like power windows, a tilt steering column, and an AM/FM/CD stereo. Plus, there's plenty of hot rod appeal with the smooth three-spoke steering wheel, tall Lokar shifter, and tach mounted prominently on top of the dash.
<br><br> The 4.3-liter V6 is a great motor to have under the hood. It has earned a hardy reputation in more modern pickups like Chevy's S-10, and this one is even topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. You'll also notice newer components like the brake booster and aluminum radiator. The motor fires up nicely, and the three-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly. The Fatman front suspension not only helps with lowered front stance, but also gives you a desirable tubular A-arm setup. Power steering, power brakes, and front discs complete an easy cruising package that makes it great to cruise this Studebaker.
<br><br> The sale comes complete with service manuals, maintenance records, and plenty of build receipts. This is true distinction in both the packaging and upgrades. So if you love a driver that's also a guaranteed head-turner, call today!
