  1. I might add that I do have some spare (used) rear fenders.
  2. The auction ran for a week and ended without a bid ($3500). Still for sale if interested. Very little will interchange between the Coupe Express or Dictator (grille, bumpers, rear fenders) and the President. Of course you could put a Coupe Express body and box on the President chassis and create a '37 President Coupe Express. Studebaker never made one but there are two '39s and two '38s that have been recreated in this fashion.
  3. Would be glad to answer any questions on any of the items
  4. Have this NOS left front fender for sale $750 or best. I remember trying to find a pair of these when I was restoring my '38 Coupe Express. Had to settle for good used that required some body work. This fender needs no repair. Contact info on photo.
  5. You are welcome. Glad to assist. There are no production orders for 1934 cars. Therefore no way to make that determination. Earliest available 1936 and not all of those.
  6. Read it on another site. Was not aware it was the same car. Not enough initial info to make that determination.
  7. A few weeks ago I received a inquiry re the number of 1934 Dictator coupes assembled. Lost that correspondence but to answer the question there were 4628 built. Of this number 3234 were 3 passenger and 1394 were 5 passenger (with the rumble seat).
  8. A good idea to include the model designation since Studebaker had a number of models at the time and Studebaker did not have "year specific" models. In other words a car you are referring to as a '28 might have been titled a '28 because it was sold in '28 but considered a '29 model year by collectors today. I say this because you list a winged radiator cap when the '28s had the Atalanta cap and the '29's used the winged cap. In fact most of the various parts you list will not interchange between the 1928 and 1929 President. You will find the model designation on a small plate on the firewall. If a '28 it would have a FA or FB prefix, if a '29 a FE or FH prefix. Of course a photo would also quickly answer the question. I do have NOS headlights for the '28 but not '29.
  9. Actually the "Speedway" option was a '31 President roadster only offering (see sales letter below). I covered this topic in my article on the '31s in the May/June 1997 issue of the Antique Studebaker Review. It was not carried over to '32. In 1933 the long wheelbase 336 c.i. President was an actual model name. Confusing but needs to be clarified.
  10. The car is a Studebaker President though it does not have a standard body so I suspect the body was built in Australia. Looking at what is left of the serial plate I am guessing the car was assembled in the Walkerville, Ontario Canada plant and not the main plant in South Bend, Indiana. There was nothing particularly unique about the right hand drive (RHD) as Studebaker assembled them routinely for European, African and Down Under markets. There are no production figures by body style and none for the RHD option. In addition to the non-standard body the headlights and cowl lights are also non-standard. As to whether a 1928 or 1929 very simple to determine by the wheelbase (131" on the '28 FB and 135" on the '29 FH). This can also be determined by the engine number that is STAMPED INTO the block on left front. '28 had a FB prefix, '29 had FH. One last determining feature is the date code on the block. Check the left side and look for a letter followed by two numbers. That will indicate the month and year the block was cast. I am attaching images of both the FB and FH roadsters with standard Studebaker roadster bodies. Have many more plus lots of technical data.
  11. Technically a '28 Dictator model GE 3rd design Royal Cabriolet for 4 passengers. Third design cars were after serial 1437601 introduced in late June 1928. Similar car to the one on the cover of the July/Aug 2011 issue of The Antique Studebaker Review. Back issues available thru the club.
  12. Studebaker did not make any commercial vehicles in that time frame. A person could however "make" one by using a wreck or getting a chassis and front clip and converting it. Bottom line there were no commercial vehicles marketed by the company during that period.
  13. Glad to be of assistance. I know of only one other intact letter opener besides the one I have, which incidentally I use most every day! Maybe this will start the grandson on the road to becoming a proud Studebaker owner some day!
