A little rough around the edges.

When not stored right things do rust well in the UK! :doh:

Re: My 1960 500

It went great, an endless stream of fun and exciting memories. We had a convoy of 5 old Triumphs and lost one of them (not pictured) at 4500ft up in the Swiss Alps. We had fixed the cooling system 3 times and thought we had it licked but it started overheating during the climb. With no place to pul...

I live in Stockton on tees, my other toy is a ratty looking Maverick, which everyone seems to want to buy for some reason, I may let it go and try something British with a bit of wood and leather inside ...and not such a thirst
I think it's time for you to return to owning a Studebaker :shhh:

Re: My 1960 500

I was just in Rowlands Castle and Portsmouth this summer. Nice area, far enough away from London.

Studebakers are still my first love, I would like to have another someday, either a GT or a 53-55 coupe
Great looking Silver Hawk in the best colour combo! The 53 Starliner is probably one of the nicest looking coupes ever made? Yes the GT is a very grown ups car, but I love it:tongue:

Re: pensylvania bondo bucket

Dam it! I was hoping for another member:P

Yes the GT is nice! Arrived from NY of all places (rust gamble) but at least this was undercoated when new and not after a lot of dodgy rust bodging!

Where about in the UK are you?

Re: 1964 500 coupe - rusting in the u.k

I understand! At least you got a lot of welding practice for your new floors in the new car :think:

How about turning it into a Rally/Race themed car? Roll bar to stiffen the thing up... Easy for me to say who's not got it in the driveway :shhh:
