  1. Good work Frank. You have quite the knack for determining a fix and getting it done quickly. And, in a lot of cases, inexpensively too!
  2. It's ALIVE!! Great news Frank. And the video looks fine.
  3. cevensky, I'll admit that I've never liked fender skirts................but your car looks really really good with the skirts on! It accentuates the long low look of the car. 👍
  4. Sounds like it's time to sit down with the parts manual(s) and do some comparisons!
  5. Listed on Facebook Marketplace in the Albany NY area by "Packard Guy": 1920s to early 1930s Studebaker Engines, 6 and 8 cylinder, Also transmission, front ends and rear ends Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/157391632763814/ DISCLAIMER: I don't know 'Packard Guy', I'm not the one who has these parts, don't know anything more about them then is in the ad. I can't answer any questions about these parts.
  6. Check with SMS Auto Fabrics............they have a huge selection of both original upholstery fabric, plus reproduced fabric. Link: https://smsautofabrics.com/
  7. But it was your grandfather's car that he chose to buy and fix up, and you can finish the job for him! (Besides, a lot of people including me would take a '49 Chrysler over a similar vintage Ford any day. )
  8. Welcome Louis to the AACA Forum, as well as to Studebaker ownership! As John S. mentions, definitely join the Studebaker Drivers Club. That will give you access to huge amounts of information as well as parts. Some of the major parts suppliers are: http://www.studebakerparts.com http://www.studebaker-intl.com http://www.mystudebaker.com http://www.fairbornstudebaker.com More vendors listed here: https://www.studebakervendors.com/
  9. Great looking car. These vintage Chrysler products are superbly engineered and reliable as the day is long. Agree fully with auburnseeker - clean/detail the car, take car of the mechanical items to bring it up to a reliable driving car, and have fun with it. Then do small upgrades that will improve the car without disassembling the whole thing. How is the interior?
  10. Nice job Frank, and really cool old brake drum lathe!
  11. Thank you John for correcting me, you are absolutely right!! Don't know what in the world I was thinking.............or not thinking at all.
  12. An R2 would have the Paxton supercharger. But yours is an R1 engine per my correction above, so yes it should have a 4 barrel carb and no supercharger. I apologize for the confusion.
  13. Good report Frank............I'm amazed at the amount of work that you get done! 👍
  14. I believe that indicates a Jet Thrust (R1) engine for a 1964 Lark or Hawk assembled on October 8, 1963 Edited to correct answer....................
  15. Thanks for the update Mike. Good to hear that you are making progress! 👍
