Right Side Drive Studebaker: Dare to be Different with Flaming River

When it comes to quality steering components and accessories the crew at Flaming River have been putting out some of the very best parts- Made in the good ol’ US of A – for more than twenty years now. Innovation is key in the hot rod market, and keeping over two decades of hot rodders and street rodders happy is no easy task to say the least!

When it comes to creativity and breaking away from the crowds, sometimes modifications of quality parts are necessary. Take for instance this super cool 1949 Studebaker that was looking for a little more of a custom change without messing with the already impeccable exterior. So the guys at Hart Hot Rods decided to use the existing Flaming River steering components added a couple more Flaming River joints and a few mods later – viola!

A little custom update over the winter can give your rod that next mod for the show season. This Stude is now Right Hand Drive and ready to make a new appearance.

Here you can see the “before” and “after” and all it took was a little bit of good old imagination to set this Studebaker apart. Flaming River offers everything from rack and pinion, to power steering and electrical accessories. So when it comes time to finally get your hot rod back on the road, this is probably one of the phone calls you should be making!
