    Looking closer at the photos, it appears that they are Commander Eight engines as the fan pulley support has three attaching bolts, and upon checking my cars the Commander has three bolts and the President has four bolts. I still would like one for my 29 Commander Eight.

    I found this on The Historical Studebaker of Australasia's Facebook. The Studebaker President engine assembly line, 1930. Just one of those brand new engines would be good to have for my 29 President.

  4. Studebaker President Speedster Build

    Hi Andy I'm in NSW, a friend of mine is thinking of building a replica Indy cay, but at this point in time has not done anything. I have a 1929 President Eight Brooklands Sports Tourer recreation. See attached photo. It's been 20 years since I built my car. I had cast iron brake drums and splined hubs made and wheels with Jaguar wheel centres. It's been a long time, but I may be able to find the supplier, if you are interested. Do you have anymore of the 28 President. I'm looking for the interior lights that are located either side of the rear window. Please contact me by email or phone, I am the Vice President of the NSW branch of the Studebaker Car Club of Australia. My details are in the Historical Studebaker Register of Australia membership list or the Studebaker Car Club of Australia membership list. or magazine. Regards John Grant

  14. Early 1920s Studebaker ?

    Hi everyone The most likely reason for body changes on Bernie's car are; most cars pre-war came to Australia as a rolling chassis. Imported cars with bodies attracted a high duty. This was to protect the Australian coach building industry. The Australian bodies were not always identical to the US bodies Bernie's car may have a TJ Richards body plate somewhere on the car, probably on the firewall..
