Leo Santucci's Awesome 1954 Studebaker

Here is one Chevy 292 total "custom" engine project that we did - 1/4 mile testing had resulted in a 10.04 @ 137+ mph. w/ only 10 pounds of boost.
- This made it the Quickest & Fastest, Full Bodied, Chevy 292 Straight 6cyl. Powered Car in the Country at the time.

One of a kind never to be duplicated - Not Available or in Production
This is a project that one of our machinists worked on and is show here
only so you can see what is possible with enough time and major money
