Do a quick Google image search for 1939 Studebaker pickup and you''ll find what was arguably the most attractive commercial vehicle of the pre-war era. More recently, some enterprising soul took that awesome look and cranked it up to 11, producing this stunning yellow rod that captures the essence of the original while giving it an insane custom look. Yes, it''s fiberglass, but does that even matter when it looks this amazing? The grille is a wild take on the original and has a fantastic art-deco vibe that also provides unbeatable engine cooling for the hot V8 behind it. Flush-fitting headlights flow into the rounded fenders and the whole truck has a seamless look that was clearly inspired by the original. PPG Lemon Ice paint practically vibrates off the bodywork, offering an incredible shine and enough brilliant color to be seen half a mile away. Of course, standard hot-rodding tricks like shaved door handles with solenoids, billet mirrors, and slick LED taillights give it a familiar yet unique look and the way the rear fenders wrap around the bed give it a very custom look. And speaking of the one-piece bed, it''s filled with lovely dark-stained plants and stainless rub strips, all surrounded by seamless bed sides, almost like a frame for the wood work itself. You can probably still use it as a truck, but it works much better as art. There''s exactly zero 1939 Studebaker inside, where a full custom interior has a very modern look. Obviously the twin cockpit look was borrowed from a Corvette, but between the low-back leather buckets and the center console, that''s probably not a crazy comparison. Just about everything inside this cab was custom fabricated, including the center console and door panels, all of which are finished like the bodywork. The driver''s seat is power-actuated, while switches for the power windows are on the center console, and the A/C is neatly integrated into the center stack. You''ll note attractive gauges with "Studebaker" logos on their faces were stuffed into the dash ahead of the driver, along with the controls for the air ride suspension neatly tucked into the side of the console. An AM/FM/CD stereo head unit nestles into the dash as well, giving it a very well-integrated look overall. A tilt column carries a wood-rimmed wheel, there''s a giant B&M shifter that seems custom-made for that console, and well-fitted carpets help control noise and heat. For power, it runs a Corvette-spec LT1 350 cubic inch V8. Reliable and powerful, it''s a hot-rodder''s best friend and offers a well-integrated look with color-matched injector covers and shiny chrome valve covers with Studebaker script. With fuel injection, it starts easily and idles well even when it''s cold, and thanks to a 4L80E 4-speed automatic transmission, it pulls down decent fuel economy as well. The chassis is actually from an S10 pickup, so it offers power front disc brakes, power steering, and a well-engineered platform that feels very polished on the road, unlike a lot of home-built rods. It''s been fully detailed with bright yellow paint to match the bodywork and the custom exhaust even includes a hi-flow catalytic converter, so this sucker is environmentally friendly! The Air Ride suspension gives it just about any stance you like, and sitting on those giant 17-inch billet wheels and fat Nitto radials, it looks fast and nasty. It''s almost a guarantee you''ll be the only guy with one of these anywhere you go, and with just shakedown miles since it was completed, it''s ready to enjoy and compete at any level.
