Rat Rod 1954 Studebaker 3R5 on 1979 Chevy Dually Frame

Are you nostalgic for Studebaker pickups, but they just aren’t quite long enough for you? Try this homemade oddity on for size!

If the seller is to be believed, most of the mechanical bits are fresh here and just a few loose ends need to be tied up. Our number one question, however, is what’s in that cab extension. There are no pics, so we don’t know if it’s extra seating or a sleeper. Regardless, this is delightfully odd.

Let’s just say there’s a lot going on here.

Front, however, is pure Stude.

Fenders are massive, as are the stacks.

How about a closeup?

Unfortunately, this is the only interior shot. It seems to follow the rat rod theme quite well.
