’39 Studebaker Conversion S10 Frame
While attending the OC Car Show you were immediately greeted by a work of art, a piece that you do not see very often at shows, a ’39 Studebaker on a S10 chassis. Say whaaaa!
Walking around the Stude/S10 there was something to catch your eye at every turn. The attention to detail from the interior, to the flush exhaust, wood truck bed, the engine, the House of Kolors paint, just everything about it was awesome!
After some diggin’ you don’t have to go too far to create a masterpiece of your own. Stylin’ Concepts offers a ’39 Studebaker kit.

Coming from the car side of the house, this kit was pretty amazing to see in person. This particular build was executed nicely, regardless if it is a kit or not, the craftsmanship, the paint alone was executed in a top-notch manner.
