Hello from Dallas Texas!

We have a one of a kind 1937 Studebaker COE Bus that I am converting.
I have a ton of history with the bus plus someone before me has dropped in a 400 small block.

I've completed most of the mechanical and have raised the roof 10 inches so we can walk and not sustain a head injury.
I like seeing how others innovate on designs and fabrication so I look forward to reading your posts and answer any technical questions if I can.

Hey Tango!

When I get the photo files together and figure out the uploading, if google the Stude 1937 COE it will pop up, it's been for sale off and on for 5 years. It's white with dark green fenders.
I actually got to speak with a fella who bought in California back in the 70's and a woman who worked at the plant in CA.

Your Bus is awesome! I wish I had your shop!

So cool!

Is this one yours?



And if so, is that your Willys Wagon in the background?

Yes That's it!

The Willys is not mine it's the previous Bus owner.

If only it could talk, I bet it could tell some stories.

OMG That has to be one of the coolest rides ever. Welcome to the forum. I look forward to seeing, A LOT of pictures, and would love to see it in person. It would sure be worth the drive up, from Houston.
When I was a little younger, I had a dry cleaning business, and for my delivery truck drove a '47 Ford panel truck. I love the old rides.
