    Dad and some of his cars

    Specially a German Ford Taunus 17M P2, produced 1957-60. They were sold in Canada at selected Ford dealerships. I remember one which had a Saxomat centrifugal clutch in it - 3 speed standard transmission with no clutch pedal. Just touching the gear shift knob would disengage the clutch.
  3. There was another engine on here a few months ago which had the carb bolted directly to the block and internal intake manifolding. It was ultimately identified as a Chalmers IIRC.

    Anyone Here Install Their Own Glass?

    If you want a challenge try putting a windshield in from the inside. Some Studebakers are like that.

    seat replace in 28 D. B.

    Get used to it, Trini. I am 6 foot 5 and have size 13 shoes. I am 71 years old and not as flexible as I once was. The gap between the front of the non adjustable seat and the front door A pillar of my 27 Studebaker Dictator is about 9 inches so being a contortionist is pretty much part of life. The non adjustable seat is positioned for someone shorter than I am so it is only a slight exaggeration to say that my knees are practically up by my ears when driving my car.😁

    Check this truck out

    KA story about Gotfredson buses. At the start of WW2 in 1939 the transit fleet in Vancouver, British Columbia included a number of Gotfredsons. When most of the bus drivers volunteered for the armed forces, women replaced them. Apparently they found the Gotfredsons difficult to drive because of a very heavy clutch and would do their entire routes in low gear.

    One from the AACA library

    Studebaker about 1915.
  9. I think it is a National, specifically 1922. The radiator shell shape is correct, the headlights with the small lights in unit with them are correct, and the hood louvres don't extend all the way to the front of the hood, which is also right. I think the fenders are right too, although can't say for sure.

    1936 Chrysler Transmission

    Can you shift into any of the other gears? You don't say anything about them. If the only one you can't select is low gear, I also think it is a shift fork problem.
  11. I'm voting for the Studebaker Lark.😁

    Who did ‘57 Better? Ford or Chevy?

    Sitting on the fence but leaning toward Ford. The one part of the 57 Chev I have never liked is the dashboard. To me it is not as attractive as the 57 Ford which is is why I am leaning that way but not far enough to fall off.😊

    Bumper with logo "McK"

    In first photo bumper looks very similar to 1926-27 Studebaker.

    Seafoam Hydra Trans Tune

    Give it time to work. My brother-in-law has a Chevy Venture which developed a hard shift condition ten years ago. He was advised to put two cans of Seafoam in and drive it for three months. If it still had the hard shift at the end of that time it needed an overhaul. It took three weeks. The shifting smoothed out. It has stayed that way for ten years until recently. It now has an occasional hard shift so two more cans of Seafoam have gone in.
