1949 Studebaker Champion 2 Door Sedan

Willie & Julie Friesen
Reedley, CA

Under the bright lime green hood of this 49 2 door sedan is a Street & Performance LT4 engine hooked to a 4L60 transmission and it has a full stainless exhaust system. The chassis has been updated with a Heidts front suspension and a Chassis Works 4 link with Koni coil-overs on a Currie 9" Ford rear end.

It now has a 50 front end and it looks like the center grill section has been welded to the fenders. Both bumpers have been tossed and that makes the round rear end look smooth.

Inside is a very clean looking gray interior that sports a 50 dash with some additional gauges. Other comforts are air conditioning, power windows, remote door and trunk releases and a custom stereo system.

Check out those "Studebaker" valve covers on the engine and imagine yourself behind the wheel of this cool looking Stude.
