  1. What are you needing? The emergency cables? The clamps that fasten the brake cables to the frame or the components that fasten the cables to the brake shoes? One of my emergency brake cables had become rusted to the armored conduit but I was able to free it by soaking the cable for several days in a solution of evaporust. I did remove and save the cables from my parts car, but getting to and locating the spares would take awhile. I do have two spare rear ends complete with brake shoes and drums. The parts book gives a good over view of the emergency brakes. It would appear that Studebaker used the same component parts from 1938 thru 1940 so you should be able to locate what you need. Let me know what your needing and I'll do my best to help you out.
  2. Terry Frye has just completed restoration of a 1936 Coupe and hopefully will be able to help you. I PM'd you his contact info. i missed typed the year I got it right in the pm. Terry also has a 1938 Coupe Express and a 1938 parts car - he was very helpful to me when I was putting my 38 Coupe back together.
  3. Chris somewhere in my spare parts is a linkage that I removed from my 1938 parts car but the K15 used the Hercules engine didn't it? If your truck used the Hercules these parts may not fit your engine but if they will work just let me know and I'll dig them out. Is the carb different than the car?
  4. What 6 cylinder engine are you wanting the dual carb arrangement for - the champion or the Commander 6?
  5. Robert I had gotten an email earlier in the month and Gary indicated he had an overseas trip scheduled later in the month so I would assume that might be the reason he hasn't responded.
  6. 266209 is the part number for a window regulator assembly for a 1937 two door. While the parts book only lists a part number for the complete regulator assembly, and shows the regulator to be unique to 1937 left front, I would guess that the gear and other components might be the same as those used on other years and models. Do you know what components have failed on your regulator? Perhaps someone can supply the needed components if your unable to locate a complete regulator assembly.
  7. Your collection never ceases to amaze. Was this a order for one customer or some othe special occasion?
  8. I've been busy with some church duties but got the chance to call Bob Kapteyn this morning and have the check in the mail to him for the museum. Very generous of Bob to "sell" the parts for a contribution to the museum. Also thanks to Richard Quinn and Gary Ash as it looks like we will have a way to provide as many of this part as needed for future members.
  9. Does anyone have a pair of "Commander" script used on the engine side panels of 1939 & 1940 that they are willing to sell. Please let me know as need them to complete restoration. 817-nine, two, four 06 two two. Thanks
  10. Click on Studeq and send Richard a message and he'll let you know what literature he has and pricing. For the gaskets contact Olson's gaskets at 360-871-1207 or
  11. Studebaker International shows the complete assembly bucket, bulb, and rim as part # 273760 at $225.00 per side.
  12. Wife went out shopping so I got access to the back of the garage and I found the latch. Took photo of the 1938 striker plate on my car. Don't have a spare striker so you'll have to get one of those or make one. Get me your address and we will get latch boxed and off to you. My e-mail is
  13. The auction ended May 25, 2018. I don't know of any way of contacting either the seller or purchaser to determine what is being done with the car. Perhaps others more familiar with E-Bay know a way to contact either the buyer or seller. Car certainly was a bargain for someone needing these part as it sold for $203.50 - it may even be less than scrap value.
