Picked this up at an estate sale today for $4. Not sure if the placement of the steering wheel is correct as there were no instructions DSC02222.thumb.JPG.06cacefe34a64eaea6e9cad37d012896.JPGDSC02223.JPG.d6603b62d757d1fb30626b5013c9f8ad.JPG

Don't you know? That's the optional, ultrasonic, megawave, heat exchange, centralized hovercraft converter unit.

A very rare part, only a few Avantis were ever sold with them. Thats why Studebaker when bankrupt. It couldn't overcome gravity! 😂

That's also why this one was only built with one wheel.🙄

Jeff, that truck is diabolical, well done! 90s mini-truck meets rat-rod...a combination I never would have imagined. It's so darn long, it demands respect, haha. Great use of a gluebomb body!

This one wasn't really a glue-bomb, but it had it's share of problems.
