    WTB 37 120 Reflectors and Lenses

    This was first posted over a month ago and no replies because the poster does not realize how his post is not very well detailed on what he needs. Getting a parts book and giving part numbers on what you need will get responses. Robert Kapteyn
  12. I did get a report from one of our Forum members that he met with the gentleman and is assisting him with his starter problem. That is what is so great about this Forum. Studebaker people helping Studebaker people. Our older members can not just slide under a car anymore. I have a friend that comes over to help , Paul has a 1953 K body and is retired. He loves to come over to help instead of watching TV all day. Thanks Tom and Paul for your help! Robert Kapteyn
