  1. I've had 2 sending units rebuilt by these guys: https://tristarrradiator.com/. I think it was in the $150 range. Before and after pics.
  2. Herman, There is a stylized bird mascot on eBay right now.
  3. No reserve auction! Not mine, just sharing. https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/0620/Open-Roads-Fall/lots/r0089-1928-Studebaker-President-Five-Passenger-State-Sedan/1013789?&utm_source=rmsothebys.com&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=0620&utm_term=0620_NoReserve&utm_content=lot_image&_cldee=amtpcmNoNTVAeWFob28uY29t&recipientid=contact-7d609c20893fe9118222000c2971a03a-08a0b26315564efb8d3049e55ebe1901&esid=083f1a9b-f824-eb11-8253-000c2971a03a#/expandGallery
  4. Thanks Aussi John. I will take a look at those options. Hoping to find an original one since I’m trying to make the car as original as possible. I appreciate it!
  5. Wanted - I'm looking for one of these wing bolts for the convertible top on a 1934 Commander. Does anyone have one they'd be willing to sell? I have one good one and one bad one. I believe it is part #254631W (if I'm reading the parts manual correctly). Any help much appreciated! Thanks, John
  6. This 53 Land Cruiser that sold at the Hackenberger auction 3 years ago had a trunk mounted AC unit. It may have been retrofitted.
  7. Rex, I guess I wasn’t clear. I have a very nice condition The President, The Dictator and a Body By Studebaker tag and I would trade one of these for a better The Commander tag. Thanks.
  8. Does anyone have a better example of one of these dashboard tags they would be willing to sell me for my restoration project? I would like to find one in better shape. there is a deep scratch on the one I have. I could also trade for a The President, The Dictator or Body By Studebaker tag if you would rather trade than sell. Thanks, John
  9. I can't say for sure since I don't have either one. That pic was from another member who lives far away. But I would guess they are probably the same length and around 9 or 10 inches long. Thanks
  10. Thank you for the reminder vintage1. I haven’t been able to find more obscure parts there in the past but it’s worth a try! Appreciate the tip.
  11. I'm looking for a couple of parts for a 34 Commander restoration: 1. The clamps that secure the gauge cluster behind the dash. The picture below is from another club member. He said there are two clamps, slightly different, a right and a left. The parts manual lists them as #258937 and #258938. It looks like they are one year only. Any chance someone has a pair? 2. Also looking for a rear view mirror part #257911 or a nice period correct example. Thanks for any help! John
  12. Not mine, found it while surfing the web and thought I would share. Looks like it would be a fun car to own! https://indianapolis.craigslist.org/cto/d/greenfield-studebaker-1928-roadster/7138998415.html
  13. I used John Wolf & Co. in Willoughby Ohio to restore my 34 Commander gauges. They are beautiful although I have yet to install them. Website: antiqueinstrument.com
  14. Thanks all for your input. Rex, I will take you up on removing them myself if I can't find any by the May swap meet in South Bend!
  15. Does anyone have one of these door aligners that you would be willing to sell me? There are two per door on my 34 Commander but I am missing one. I would like to find two if possible. They are 1-5/16" in length. Also how were these finished? Thanks for your help. John
