For sale is my ultra rare 1955 Studebaker President 2 door coupe!

Its a great rat rod kustom and ived owned it since buying it in California back in1995. i then shipped it back to the UK in 1997.

Over the years i have slowly carried out a number of works to it . including installing front disc brakes and a Ford 8inch rear end with diff lock and disc brakes it uses a remote servo assisted master cylinder. Converted to 12V electrics. Has that lovely V8 burble out of its twin tail pipes which i fitted in about 1999 and are in very good order.

The engine is the original Studebaker 250 cubic inch V8 (4. 2 litre) with Carter 4 barrel carburettor. Just had to replace the fuel pump and did the points. condenser and distributer rotor too.

It has 5 new(ish) tyres and steel wheels with very few miles on them. The paint work is original and is in tatty condition a few rust marks but absolutely solid throughout. only surface rust (you won't find ant rust holes on this Californian car! I have the original stainless steel trim which goes down the sides of the bodywork but i prefer the look without the same goes for the v ornament in the grill.  

The interior is original and tatty but with the use of a couple of well placed rugs does the job fine. The headliner is also missing although i still have the frame for it and the interior roof has been coated in hammerite to keep it tidy.

All the original parts i have kept with the car including the old drum brake . rear end carb and oil cleaner etc and they are included in the sale. All in all a very cool looking 1950s yank that needs a little fettling. it is free to tax and is mot exempt. it would make a very nice kustom. r just enjoy it as it is! I have tried to be honest with the description but you should come see it and you won't be disappointed! The first to see will surely buy!
