  1. I got the set for my '33 Rockne from George Rohrbach many years ago. Others have procured them from his as well. Question is, just how many of those sets has he managed to shelve?
  2. In the day, Studebaker, and other manufacturers, sold their accessory "TOP DRESSING". I'm thinking about using a diluted Flex-Seal.
  3. On a somewhat related search, the chromed hinge, part # 1240XW, and 34-3/4" long, is intact on my '33 Rockne 10, but the center hinge supports are not. Part # 255317. Should anyone come across them in their travels, or when parting out any '32, '33 Models 65, 75 or 10, I could certainly use two of them.
  4. Ymer, If you have, or know someone who has, access to Facebook, you may want to post your request to the Rockne group there as well: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1177172342343566
  5. On my 1960 Studebaker convertible any surface that wasn't carpeted was Naugahyde from U.S.Royal.
  6. This '52 (not '53) convertible got bid to $30,250 and did not meet reserve just ended this week. There's some good photos of the seats. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1953-studebaker-commander-7/
  7. I have a '51 Commander Starlight; it's been reupholstered as original, but the seats are cloth, whereas the convertibles were, I believe, all Naugahyde. I believe you have not received the desired response here because the AACA Studebaker page is visited mostly by folks with interest in pre-war vehicles. The Studebaker Drivers Club Forum is extremely active and, I would suspect more than a few folks there can supply interior photos from '47 through '52 convertibles, which would all be trimmed pretty much the same. Might want to post your inquiry there. https://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/
  8. I think that's confusing us, as there were no bucket seats installed in those. Just the same split-back bench as in all the two door models.
  9. That's a Rockne Model 75; essentially a Studebaker Model 54 with Rockne badging. The Model 75 was only produced for the 1932 Model year. The 1932 Rockne Model 65 and 1933 Rockne Model 10 were the ones with the "V" in the grill, and were smaller than the Model 75. As well, the Model 75 still used the Studebaker 205 cid Six; while the smaller Rocknes used the all new Vale-Cole designed 189 cid Rockne Six, that would later be bored and stroked to become the Commander Six installed in automobiles through 1950 and larger trucks through 1960.
  10. Dear Swedish Car Nut, I love these pictures; thanks for sharing them here. I hope you don't mind but, I have taken the liberty of sharing your post to the Studebaker Drivers Club Forum. https://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/forum/your-studebaker-forum/general-studebaker-specific-discussion/1903709-studebaker-club-meet-7-17-2021-vadstena-sweden-borrowed-from-the-aaca-studebaker-forum
  11. Don't search on "the Net" for your parts. Go direct to our sources. And, no, the timing gear for the crank is also available, though the celeron gear is usually the first to go. Procure a copy of the 1960 Chassis Parts Catalog and do your search by the correct Studebaker factory part number. www.studebakervendors.com
  12. He does say in the video he is receptive to anyone who wants to help him make the move, as well as identify things that should be saved.
  13. Only spare parts I have are axle/suspension parts. If you use Facebook, you may be interested in this group, and perhaps they can help. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1177172342343566
  14. Herman, I notice yours is a Deluxe model. Mine is a Standard model. Your interior may have had a nicer interior.
  15. Derek in Minneapolis could use a lot of input from those who know. That would not be me. He's looking for a Ball & Ball SV34A carburetor. His contact information is at the bottom of his video description. [video]
  16. After five days with no response, you might want to post your inquiry in the SDC Forum or the Studebaker Truck Forum.
  17. That's the conundrum. Any project vehicle needs to have some dismantling in the process and, in that process it becomes less appealing once the owner has lost interest, even though some essential labor has already been accomplished. The only thing I see going against this as an investment is the fact it is a two door sedan, and not a Starlight or convertible; but those sedans were some very fine vehicles. And I'm thrilled to see more people finding them worth resurrecting.
  18. More correctly, 1947 Land Cruiser; a Commander with a 4 inch longer wheelbase than the Commander; more rear seat leg room and higher trim level. 20,519 were produced for the '47 model year. Note the wing vent window in the rear door, unique to the Land Cruiser. And the Two word model designation can be detected on the filler panel between the trunk and right rear fender.
  19. These folks rebuild old coils. Did one for my '33 Rockne and it works great. http://mykmlifestyle.com/Antique_Parts_Rebuilds.html
  20. The SDC Forum has a specific page for sale items. https://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/forum/your-studebaker-forum/sale-want-found-cars
  21. I wouldn't be surprised if the original factory blueprints are still on file in the Archives at the Studebaker National Museum. You could check with Andy Beckman.
