  1. I have a 1936 President coupe that is about 90% completed (the way I bought it 5 years ago). It was part of an estate and the owner had passed away suddenly without leaving any information on the location of certain parts that are missing. I have been able to locate a rare EE-1 Stromberg carb, a gas tank and some smaller parts. What I am missing is the clutch and brake pedals with shaft and ancillary parts. I have a ’37 President parts car but those particular items are not the same as on the ’36. Does anyone know of a ’36 President parts car or perhaps these specific parts? Maybe someone built a street rod and has parts left over? I would also be interested in knowing if anyone knows of Eds Auto Restorations in Pine Bush, New York? Apparently the previous owner had the car at that location having some restoration work done at one time and I thought the missing parts may have been left with him when it was moved? I have not been able to locate that shop. This would have been 10-12 years ago so maybe he is no longer in business or even still living? Any assistance appreciated.
  2. For the record that fire truck is not in Hawaii, it is in California. The person seeking the parts is a volunteer who lives in Hawaii. I provided him with lots of data on the truck some months ago.
  3. Some of my items now running on ebay (6-23-18):

    dictator serial number plates

    I am not 100% certain that Studebaker was stamping the numbers in the frame as far back as 1928. I do know as far back as '31. In any event it was on the underside of the frame just about where you would put your foot to enter the car (drivers side). Yes, it was lightly stamped so very difficult to bring out. I assume your car is a model GE (check small tag on firewall)? If so I can provide a serial number range depending on whether your car is a first, second or third design model (below).

    dictator serial number plates

    The serial plate posted by NZCARNERD would be the correct one for your 1928 Dictator. You can purchase a new one from Lavine's restorations (old Pulfer-Williams). See site at They show only one Studebaker sample but they do have that serial plate you need. Just use the "contact us" function and send them the image and they will quote you a price. As for the serial stamped into the frame, if your frame has been blasted and painted you will probably not be able to recover it.
  8. Studebaker did not actively market accessories until mid 1930 (1931 model year). Beginning at that time they began to issue multi page illustrated accessory catalogs meant specifically for dealers and salesmen. These were different from the catalogs given to the new car owners. They included pictures of all the accessories, the part numbers and prices along with complete descriptions. The number of pages varied by year and might be from 12 pages up to 32. Sometimes two or three different issues would be published in a single model year as new items were added or Studebaker was pushing seasonal items. I have a complete run of all these publications and have scanned most and can provide reprinted copies. Of course prices vary depending on the number of pages. If anyone has an interest I can supply prices and no. of pages for each year. You can email direct at or thru this site. A few samples above.
  9. I note the Studebaker National Museum has four cars now running on ebay. These cars were donated with the understanding that they would be sold to help support museum activities. Looks like some pretty nice and interesting vehicles. Click here to see the four auctions with more details.

    1932 and 1933 Commander

    The model 62 would be a 1932 Dictator. The '33 Commander used a similar engine but with a 1/2" longer stroke. You might want to check the two engine numbers to be sure.

    My Grandfather’s 29

    Your grandfathers car would have been a late production (3rd Design) 1928 Dictator model GE sedan. I am attaching a page from the Antique Studebaker Review in which I tried to explain the differences in GE series cars. The photo in image one shows a 2nd design car with the longer windshield visor and older style radiator shell. In the second image I have included a 3rd design car and you can note the shorter visor and newer radiator shell. Note in image number two the car has spare tires mounted in the front fenders (side mounts) and wire wheels. These cars were referred to as Regal or State models. The economy version of the same car would have had wood wheels and a rear mounted spare like the one in the first image. There is no way to determine from the serial number whether your grand dad's car was the standard or state model though it was most certainly a 3rd Design. I have just completed a 5600 word article for the magazine Collectible Automobile that covers the Dictator line from 1927-37. It is due to appear in their August issue which will be out in June. The last photo is a restored 2nd Design GE belonging to Don Armacost of Grandview, Missouri. Have a lot more data if required.
  13. My stuff. Glad to respond to any questions.
