Did you know: A radiator for a Jeep CJ configured for a small block Chevy swap is a pretty darn close fit for ‘53+ Studebakers? $180 from Jeg's vs. a $600 recore of the original. I'm not a fan of the look, but it's the least of the aesthetic flaws on this car. Next up: replacing the heater hoses. Another fun fact: this car has three (!) heater cores. One under the front seat, one behind the dash, and a smaller one dedicated to the defroster. It's only about a mile of hose.
