  1. Hello Friends, I own a 1926 Studebaker Big Six, EP series, sport roadster body. After some time trying to buy parts, with limited success, I decided to try to reproduce some of them, so any detail pictures or images of this model will be very much appreciated. Main areas of interests on parts are: - rumble seat lid pull/grab handle - roadster top rests (this model uses 2 long and 3 short ones) - front bumper medallion (or bumperette medallion) - hood hooks/latches - dashboard bottoms I would also be grateful to receive any pictures of engine and hood compartment, so I can base my restoration project. Many Thanks for your kindness support JRA

  3. I have just checked my car, it is a 120” wheelbase model as I expected, once it is a sports roadster body. The production date stamped in the engine block is May 18th 1926, so after the Bulletin informing the tire size change. Rim width is 5”.
  4. Thanks. The picture is the first and original store of a later large supermarket chain in Brazil. So the express body makes sense. What year would it be?
  5. Is this car a Model T based truck?
  6. I really like this forum, helps me to think and investigate further. Maybe the answer was closer to me. Based on the comment made by starlightcoupe I have researched in more details the books on my shelves. The service bulletin of May 10th 1926 describes tire sizes, see picture attached. I need to confirm the production date of my car on the engine, to ensure the right tire. The engine number is EP39841, closer to the end of production run in July 1926. My car is a sports roadsters, so I believe it is 120" wheelbase, but I also need to check. The question is around the rim width of 5" of my the disc wheels in my car, what would be the best option? Checking Universal Tire, there are two options from Firestone Champion: 600/20 (suggested rim width 3"-4" ) or 650/20 (suggested rim width 3.5"-4.5" ). What do you all think? Thansk, JRA
  7. Thanks, Scott. I am really thinking on black walls. What is the comparison for 30”/5, is it the same as 600/20” ?
  8. Hello Guys, I am struggling to select the right tire for my 1926 Studebaker Big Six, EP series, Sport Roadster. It uses 20” full disc wheels. It seems to be 6.00/20, but there are many different options and widths in Coker Tire, that it is unclear to me if this is right. I intend to use black wall tires, I believe they are more correct for the period. Thoughts? thanks, JRA

    Starter Drive

    Hi Jeff, Unfortunately the starter drive of my car broke today. It is a 1929 Marmon model 78. The starter is a Delco-Remy, model 726A. I cannot identify any part number on the drive, please see broken part picture. Do you have a replacement for it? Thanks

    WTB 1920’s Lincoln

    Thanks for your comments, Walt. I really enjoy 1920s cars, my first collector’s car was a 1928 Chevrolet, that I had to totally restore. The advantage of a 1928 Lincoln, compared with previous years, is the four-wheel brake, despite of being mechanical ones. From my cars, only one was fully restored when I bought, 1929 Dodge-Brothers. You are right to say that it is a totally different situation, “buy and drive” for a 90 years old car. Anyway, restoration, research, trial and error sometimes, are also part of my joy in the hobby.

    Sedan, 7p, project, original or old restoration. 1924-26 preferred years. It needs to be a complete car. Tks
  14. I want to buy a 1924-1929 Lincoln. Tks, JRA
  15. I enjoy a lot the colors of my 1929 Dodge-Brothers, Six, brougham. All my 1920’s cars have black fenders, except this one, it seems very gracious to me. JRA
