  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. No but if you could post some pics its progress would be nice to see.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. Reaching out to anyone in Belgium who has a contact within the Auto World Museum located in Brussels. In 2009 they had on display a 1928 Studebaker President "FA" Tourer. See attached pics of it on display. * Does anyone know if the Museum still has this car on display or still has it at all. * If they do, does anyone have a contact within the Museum who could share some information about the car. This 1928 Studebaker President Tourer was made in limited numbers and as to date, besides theirs, up until recently the only other known one was owned by Pete
  9. Does anyone out there have an original Frame Serial number plate they acquired or kept off of a parts car frame laying around in an old shoe box, desk drawer or nailed up on the garage wall that is as follows; Any number stamped in the data plate ranging between 6,008,601 - 6,009,917 on it? If so would you please contact me. Also looking for same frame style Serial number plate with any number ranging between 6,013,091 - 6,017,639 stamped on it. Both above plates must have a number between the above listed number range. See below attached pic for serial numb

  11. The other feature of the hydraulic brakes on this model and year Studebaker was the fact that the hydraulics operated off the transmission (i believe their was a small hydraulic pump of sorts on the side of the tranny near the gear shift) and the reason Studebaker did not continue with their hydraulic brake system and that technology back then and into subsequent years and didnt reexplore the use of hydraulic brakes until 1935 was that if the car stopped running for what ever reason while you were moving, the car lost most of its breaking ability, which made for some dicey situations. Which is
  12. No. That was a period excessory, the blue one, car #57 was purchased by Paramount Studios to pick up and drive celebrities to the studios. Once done as a studio car it got sent off to the prop department and was in the 1932 Movie "Hot Saturday" with Cary Grant. At the time of filming it was not on the car, but the mounting hardware looks like it always was, so maybe the Studio took it off to get the shot with all the people riding in it, (Cary Grant is sitting in the front passenger's seat in this photo) the studio eventually sold the car and the mechanic (Robert Branton Sr.) for Jimmy Durante
  13. The FEL-2 does not mean its a Brougham or a " Land Cruiser" etc. "FE" is the designation for the 135" Long Wheelbase President, the designation of "L-2" was for the 7 Passenger Tourer with Dual Sidemount fenders. The "L" was for the touring body and if it had "L-1" it was wood spoke wheels with a rear mounted spare. There were only about 60 of these 1929 7 passenger Tourers made and as of to date there have only been 4 of them surface. #19 is an "L-1" but was later converted to Dual Sidemounts and wire wheels and is currently owned by Rex Miltenberger #21 which was an "L-1" model I
  14. Answered my own question by finding someone on Ebay listing a Trico Catalog and displaying the page that listed the information I wanted to confirm. Now just need to find the 7/16" nut
  15. Can anyone confirm what Trico Wiper Motor (Half Moon shape) model number was used on the 1928/29 convertible model Studebakers? (Cabriolet, Touring and Roadster) Was it the KSB 108 or was it a different Trico part number? And was the Trico Motor plated or painted black on the convertible windshields? Does anyone have a Trico Wiper Catalog covering 1928-29 they can check for me? I'm guessing they used the same wiper motor regardless of whether it was a Dictator, Commander or President? Thanks in advance. Also ... does anyone have the 7/16" wiper arm nut used on these?
