  1. Rex, Its been almost a year since the post on this subject and I'm trying to help a fellow hobbyist in Australia, Frank Touts, who is currently having his 1928 President FB motor rebuilt. My question is, are the dies you have for the water manifold useable for the FB Motor? If so, any updates on how close you are to producing these? And if not, do you know who may have a FB water manifold, Oil pump housing, and I believe he is also in need of the main camshaft gear, a new cam as the distributor gears on the camshaft are stripped. He can be contacted at touts@rocketmail.com if anyone readi
  2. Zolate, Any updates to your post, pictures and in response to Studeq's inquiry as to serial and body numbers as I am curious as well to know the numbers and see photos, since I too own a 1929 President Cabriolet.
  3. Wayne, I also noticed another individual posted on October 5th in this forum he is having handles and cranks made doe his 1928 President. You might want to contact him if he is also doing what you need for your car if the handles are the same as yours. See screen shot of his forum post.
  4. Tom, You are correct, it's not old. I have a few myself I bought back in the mid 70s and these were readily available and being sold back then and were common place at Studebaker activities and shows I went to then. But then again, maybe they are old, at least as old as me, I just never thought of myself as old .... until now .....lol
  5. Wayne, Which series 1928 President do you have? They made running changes the entire year, 1st, 2nd and 3rd series and there was an "FB" Model and an "FA" Model. Do you have any specific pictures of what your handles are supposed to look like? I have a set of spare doors in my barn that were taken off a 1928/29 President. Regards, Shawn
  6. John, If you run across another interior door lock please let me know. I too am in need of one for my 1929 President, identical to the one you were looking for, so if you run across another, please let me know, Regards, Shawn.
  7. Looks like is sold for $18,500. Thats a damn good price for a restored car even if there are incorrect items on it.
  8. Well good news Frank, I was going through my Touring files and ran across a correspondence between me and Peter Limon back in March of 1999 and I have his frame serial number and engine number on that letter. In that letter he said he knew of no other President Tourers in Australia, but oddly enough, I also ran across another email letter dated June of 1999 where I was talking to a man named Warren Thompson in Australia who said he was in the process of restoring a 1930 President Tourer with 6 wire wheels. I will message you all those details in a bit.
  9. Ben, does your car have a rear floorboard heater? The section cut out off your exhaust pipe right before it gets to the mufflers is for an exhaust bypass valve. When you wanted heat to the rear passenger quarters, you would pull a lever mounted on the driver's side floorboard, this would divert the hot exhaust from the muffler, through another pipe that led to the floorboard heater, the hot exhaust would run through a series of tubing in the floor heater and then out a second exhaust pipe on passenger side. This is how my 1924 Model 51a Brougham is. Which is why I posted the original question
  10. Does anyone know what the purpose of having the "Muffler inlet elbow plug" in the elbow of the muffler elbow assembly was? This elbow attached between the end of the exhaust pipe coming into the front of the muffler. This was on cars whether or not they had a floor heater bypass, and that by pass was on the exhaust pipe prior to the muffler elbow so what was the puprose of the plug in the elbow?, and was the plug removed to attach anything to the elbow, if so then what? See picture
  11. No but if you could post some pics its progress would be nice to see.
  12. Does anyone have these two "Tire Carrier Extension" bars which mounted to the bottom of the spare tire rack. Part number for the longer one was 153659 in the 1924 book, 153673 in the 1925. Not sure which years they used these besides 1924-1925.
  13. Rex, Just out of curiosity I checked on my '29 FE-E to see if my "VIN" was there and I was unable to see anything after cleaning both areas in front of and behind the 4 rivets. Nothing. I haven't looked at the other FE's yet. Do you know if they did this in '29 or maybe something they started doing later into '32? Trying to help out a few other people missing their frame data plates. Besides there, would there be any other places in the '29s that a serial number might be? It would make sense that there would have to be some other place on the cars as they rolled down the assembly line the
  14. Rex, where you're telling Nicolas to check, are you referring to the frame serial number plate, or is there a secondary location on the frame the serial number is stamped which is what your referring to?
  15. Rex, I have never seen the letter "B" before after the "FEL-1 or L-2" designation. I made a guess that it might have been on the export touring models or maybe South American exports? Any thoughts on the "B" as It the first I've seen on our cars.
