    Owsley Stanley's truck found.

    "......this Studebaker 2R15 allegedly gained its notoriety when the Grateful Dead’s financial backer, landlord, sound man, and supplier of LSD, Owsley Stanley, bought the machine to haul his custom-made sound gear back and forth to the band’s gigs."

    From HERE....

    I've always liked the look of those pickups. I bought one new in '91 and only had it 6 months. Should've known better than to get the 2.5L 4-banger. Are those T/A GTA rims? Looks sweet- Like ADK curious what's under the hood- cool truck.

    Pretty much killed off my Dad's '79 like that when I first got my license. It took some abuse for sure.:D

    The valve covers have to come off on the LB7s. On the LLYs and newer, they scalloped the covers to make the job easier. They also changed the injector design, so it isn't a problem like the LB7s are.

    Under the Hood,, MY almost stock 2.5 :rofl.,, Electric pusher fan, Cold Air intake , KN, modified TB, HEI Coil, 2.5" exhaust with High Flow Cat and 3:42 axle, with the 5 speed nets me plenty of PEP and Sweet 28 MPG. Plus all doing that at over 200,000 miles. I can't complain. Its not a SB, but its super reliable.

    And yes, they are period correct and actual GTA wheels, all front fitment (deep Offset).
