    1929 Studebaker Commander (not mine)

    I pm'd with him, he said it will do 55mph. I contacted him because he has the same engine as mine. I am having an issue at high rpm. The car looks solid to me but I don't know how negotiable on price he might be.
  2. This is in Indianapolis. He is asking $11k https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/379602302775339/

    Christmas ride

    I have to use either through windshield wiper port on the intake to get my 29 to start in the winter. I got it out last week and drove it once and it has set in the drive uncovered ever since. Now I need to take it for another short drive and put it away again.

    Studebaker License Plates

    Here is the article from Southbend with a picture. https://www.southbendtribune.com/news/local/history/studebaker-license-plate-will-be-available-starting-jan/article_48b36ad3-81c8-59d7-99fa-5b5ba9dd76e7.html
  6. These were under the front seat of my 29 Dictator when I bought it.

    Disgruntled buyer

    So long as you were honest and up front you have a clear conscience.
  8. I keep mine under weatherproof car covers. Here where I am the wind comes across the field to the south and will destroy nearly any non-permanent structure. I have had good luck with a Duck Covers brand for my 29 Stud and I am testing a Coleman for the 1970 Siata (mostly because I could not find a Duck Cover small enough).

    Heading to USA

    You are probably wise to remain in the South as the weather up here can be quite unpredictable and sometimes downright cold. If however you feel the need to chill yourself to the bone I might suggest the museums around Auburn, Indiana or the Studebaker museum at South Bend, Indiana. If you do come up to Hoosier country let me clue you in that, North Vernon is south, South Bend is north and a French Lick isn't what it sounds like.

    Does it even have to run?

    Sometimes it is too dangerous to make something run again. Imagine watching the Kee Bird burn after all of the man hours and work to get her into the air again.

    Why? Why?

    If they had put the hydraulics under it and tiny little tires I'll bet ya it would sell in minute.

    no title

    Indiana - No Title In a vehicle sales transaction, if there is no title for the vehicle and one cannot be obtained, a bill of sale is required and all signatures must be notarized. https://www.dmv.org/in-indiana/bill-of-sale.php

    Setting up for spooky fun- '51 Chieftain

    wire it so you can make the headlights alternate back and forth like a police cruiser and pulse horn like a modern car alarm. Also you will need a fog machine for effect. Wait until your victims are in front of the garage door, leave the garage completely dark until the door is up (you might need to remove the door opener bulb if you have one) then start the lights and horn. If you have a strobe put it farther back in the garage and kick it in with horn and lights. P.S. You can always blast Kiss's Christine Sixteen for effect thought the kiddies won't understand the connection.

    29 Erskine Spark Advance Lever

    I think these steering wheels are actually a steel core with a bakealite or some such molded covering. It should still be safe even though cracked I would think.

    Pre War Cars - how fast is fast?

    This one isn't occasional, as you get to about 45mph the engine gets very rough, missing and unless you let off the accelerator you will actually begin slowing down. I have had the springs and front end off of her last year, the springs and king pins are fine but the steering joint are sloppy. I tried to do some adjusting but it did not help.
