Studebaker Daytona: Get That Lark To The Nearest Racetrack!



Last time we heard from Vintage Racer, he was performing duct-tape heroics to keep his Datsun 510 on the weather-challenged race track. Since then, he's been sending more of his excellent photographic work our way, and today we're going to look at one of the coolest musclecars ever built, rivaling even the mighty '69 SC/Rambler. Yes, this here is a '64 Studebaker Daytona vintage race car! Make the jump to read Vintage Racer's description, and get ready for more of his photos later in the week!

Evidently, in 1964 Studebaker built 465 of these - with 283 Chevy engines. So after building a Trans Am Camaro, this gentleman was looking for a new project. Something different to road race - a Chevelle, maybe a Nova. He found out there were FIA homlogation papers for a Studebaker, and this is what he built. A beautiful car, it ran pretty well and sounded great. He'll be back out with it over the 4th of July weekend at the SOVREN Historic races.
