  1. Hi Don. Thanks for responding, but if I am reading your post correctly, the air cleaners you have are similar to the one in the photo above. That is the air cleaner I am trying to replace with one that is labeled as 0303-1F in the illustrations in the parts manual. If what you have looks like 0303-1F, I would like to see pictures. Thanks. Tom
  2. Hi Chris. Thanks for looking. I’d like to find the correct one because the hood side panels are recessed to accommodate that larger diameter air cleaner. I’ve owned this Coupe-Express for more than 23 years now, so I guess I need to start paying more attention to finding the correct air cleaner (either here or at swap meets once they open up again) Tom
  3. I have started to look for a correct air cleaner for my ‘37 Coupe-Express. The photo shows what I have on my engine now. It’s good-looking, but not correct for the year. The page from the parts manual shows illustration number 0303-1F (part number 190195) as the one I’m looking for. If anyone has one of these in good shape that they would be willing to part with, please contact me here or at: studebaker4829@live.com Thanks in advance. Tom
  4. Yes, I finally got into my storage and found the support rod. If you want it, e-mail your mailing address to: studebaker4829@live.com and I’ll send it out. All I ask is whatever postage is on the box. Tom
  5. For proper measuring of bolt patterns, wheels with even numbers of bolt holes (4, 6, or 8), measure from center to center of opposite bolt holes. For 5-lug wheels measure from the center of one hole to the far edge of an opposing hole. ’37 Coupe-Express and Dictator are 5 x 5, not 5 x 4.75. Tom
  6. Here is a photo of an original ‘35 Commander wheel with original stripes. It is a 16 inch wheel. I think that Studebaker went to wheels with hubcap clips in the wheels in ‘36, rather than hubcap clips in the hubcaps themselves. The wheel in the photo posted by albatrossca looks like Studebaker, and earlier than ‘35. I’d be looking at the size of the bolt holes (1/2” for Dictator and 9/16 for Commander and President), bolt pattern (5 x 5 for Dictator and 5 x 5 1/2 for Commander and President). I’m not sure when Studebaker went from 17” wheels to 16’s, but I’m sure that info is ava
  7. Chris —-Did you ever find the lug nuts you needed? I was looking through some of my Hudson parts and came across some (6 or 7) right hand 9/16-18 lug nuts and one left hand 9/16-18 lug nut that I had for my ‘37 President. The parts book shows the same numbers (174969 and 174970) for ‘35 Commanders Years ago, when I was restoring my President, I bought a six foot length of 7/8 hex stock with the intention of making my own lug nuts. I also bought a left hand 9/16-18 tap. If you still need ‘em, I can make ‘em. It really wouldn’t be difficult in the lathe. Just put the stock in t
  8. Hi. I guess I don’t check this forum as often as I should. I just now saw your post. I don’t have many ‘37 headlight parts left. I know that I have a pair of reflectors that need to be re-silvered and I have some of the “arrowhead” guide clips and springs and some of the flat stops. I don’t have any sockets or lenses or spring seats. I also have the front license plate bracket. Tom studebaker4829@live.com
  9. Bumping to top. I don’t care what it’s called. I want to call it “sold”. This car should have been gone 9 months ago. I’ll listen to offers. Tom
  10. This ‘32 Chevrolet is once again offered for sale. The buyer was unable to retrieve the car during the winter and then the pandemic shut down all travel for him and he lives in the northeast in a state that would still require him to quarantine if he traveled to Louisiana. Anyway, the logistics just proved too much and the deal is off. Here are a couple of pictures of the car now. I did put it together enough to make transport easier. Please read the description in the original post. Contact information is the same. Come look at it in person. Still located about 10 mi
  11. studebakerfoureighttwonine@live.com Use digits, not the spelled out numbers Don’t feel bad if I don’t respond right away. My iPad ignores e-mails from my sister, and so does the desktop computer, but at least the desktop sends mail to a “junk” folder where I eventually find it. There’s a PM function here on this AACA-sponsored site? I sure can’t find it Tom Lewis
  12. OK, looks like a ‘36 coupe with crank out rear window. So, what’s up? Tom
  13. Rex— Ain’t memory a wonderful thing? Back when I thought I could make a living transporting antique cars, here’s a picture of yours. It was 2002, so “over 15 years ago” still applies. I transported it for you from Napa, California to Niles. I tried to take a picture of every car we transported and put them in chronological order in a scrapbook, so I know you’ve owned it for at least 18 years Tom
  14. Hi Chris. After reading your comment I fitted an original 2331 bulb into that reproduction socket and it fit fine. I see these 2331 bulbs at every swap meet I go to. I stopped buying them because I have so many (34 on hand right now — I just counted them) I also checked to see that the contacts on the bottom of the bulb lined up with the holes in the insulating washer when the owner has to solder the button contacts on the wires. Looks OK to me. I did check Rhode Island Wiring’s catalog and they don’t show these sockets. I’m not sure where Restoration Supply C
  15. Here’s a picture of various parts I have. Some of those “A” shaped clips were reproduced by Don Axlerod years ago. I’m not sure where I got the reproduction socket. It might have been Restoration Supply Company in Escondido, CA. The socket is in the newest catalog I have for them at $24 each. The original socket pictured can be restored with a couple of insulating washers, a couple of contact buttons, a spring, and some soldering ability. Tom
