1947 Studebaker Tommy Thornburgh - Barris
Starting with a ’47 Studebaker convertible was very unusual thing to do, but the Barris brothers did an fantastic job. The windshield was chopped 4 inch, the front fenders where extended 2.5 inch and headlights frenched into hand made rings. A new grille opening was completely hand formed and fitted with a grille made of two ’50 Lincoln grilles and topped of with round parking lights. Bumpers front and rear come from a ’52 Lincoln. At the rear the rear fenders where molded to the body and ’52 Studebaker taillights where mounted horizontal in hand made extentions. The 30 inch long and 8 inch wide extentions where molded to the body and give the car a very elegant and much longer look. The exhaust tips where relocated into the bumper guards.
All emblems and handles where shaved and corners rounded. The gravel shield front and rear where molded to the body and the rear fenders where extended downward to level them with the rest of the body.
The interior was upholstered with white rolled and pleated leatherette by the Carson Top Shop. They also created the padded removable top, which was upholstered in royal dark blue cloth. The unusual color for the top was a nice contrast for the ice blue paint which covers the body. A ’52 Pontiac side trim was used on the smoothed body and the space between the side trim pieces was painted dark blue to match the Carson top. The dashboard was left factory stock.
Apperently the car was later painted marroon, its current whereabouts are unknown at this moment.
