  1. This thread is 11 years old, and the original poster has unfortunately passed away.
  2. I applaud your perseverance on this project! More pictures please.................
  3. I was able to get right to Don's website. Try this link: https://donsautoparts.com/
  4. He says he is going to save the "cool stuff", but I'm not sure what his definition of "cool stuff" is. Vern was a source of hard to find parts for a long time, but time moves on.
  5. Welcome! Great to have yet another old car enthusiast in North Carolina.
  6. Hi Eric, Just wondering if you still have the Studebaker, and if so how is it doing?
  7. On the subject of radiators - my '64 Studebaker Hawk ran hot from the time I got it. Had the radiator cleaned, no change. Finally took it to the oldest radiator shop in the area and talked to the guy that had been there 50 (!) years. He put it in the tank and flowed water thru it, said it definitely was not clogged up. But he showed me where the copper fins (corrugations) between the tubes were all loose, and said that was the problem with the radiator, no fix except a recore. Put a radiator in from another Studebaker that I had (that had tight fins/corrugations), and presto the cooling problem went away. Anyway, something to look at on your radiator. Probably not the issue, but you have hit the most common potential problems, so time to think somewhat out of the box.
  8. Hi Frank, any progress on the Nash lately?
  9. I'm looking forward to some car shows this year too! Glad you were able to get out with Maude.
  10. Looks like you are moving right along Mike. But that bill for the bearings, wow! 😮
  11. 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!
  12. It's ALIVE!! Great news Frank. And the video looks fine.
  13. 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. 👍
  14. Sounds like it's time to sit down with the parts manual(s) and do some comparisons!
