  1. That photo was taken when it was in Washington state. It was purchased by a guy in South Carolina who did some amateur restoration work on it, and had it running and driving. He sold it and I lost track after that.
  2. We use 600W in the 1916. Seems to work well.
  3. Some of the engine rebuild parts are getting scarce for the Commander Six. Otherwise, just about anything you could possibly need to keep it on the road is readily available. mystudebaker.com
  4. Stephen Allen’s LLC has purchased the remaining inventory of finished steering wheels from the Shrock Brothers. These are now available for sale. http://mystudebaker.comDo not expect the same pricing the Shrocks offered these for. Their recasting service is no longer available and this is the last of their product line. Contact us through our website for pricing and photos. The 37, 39, 41 wheels are all “banjo” or Phantom wheels. Wheels available:1931 President & Commander1937 President, Dictator, & Coupe Express - grey, includes horn button1939 President, Commander, & Coupe Expres
  5. The car we have with the home-built “body” has a plywood firewall. Guess we’ll never know the serial number.
  6. Where is the serial number located on these cars?
  7. Photos of the float setup would be great. I’m sure I’ll have to repair the one on this car, I seriously doubt it’s still operable. Thank you. Bloo, thanks for the pic of your car. Nice to see what one of these is “supposed” to look like. This car does have the flow indicator hooked up on the dash. This car has been a total mystery to everyone around the shop, and it’s been here for at least 25 years. Pretty fun to learn some things about it.
  8. Catalin, I’m glad you bought the Rockne. It went to a good home!
  9. So the “sight glass” is actually a gauge with a float in it. Had no idea! Next time I have the car out, I’ll dig into that and see if there are any pieces of the float setup still intact. Thank you! Also, really cool to see others out there with these brass era Studes. So the 1914 models came with electric start? Luckily this one typically fires up on the first pull as long as you pour fuel in the cylinders first. For a 107 year old car that was pieced together out of a junk yard, it’s fairly reliable and consistent. The 1916 SF 4 cylinder to
  10. Hi Bill, thank you for taking the time to respond. What you shared is more informative than anything else I’ve found. We have no manuals or published info on this car, period. The chassis is mostly stock as far as I can tell. It does have the 3 speed transaxle. The body is a total mutt. The hood is brass, the cowl is wood, and the “speedster” body is plywood. A couple of years ago I tracked down a gentleman in his late 90’s who remembers the car from the 1950’s. He was active in a car club in Long Island that focused on brass era cars. He told me that a friend of his found t
  11. No dipstick. All it has is a sight glass that shows oil splashing around when it’s running.
  12. The compressor in that car is a modern Sanden with the clutch coil rewound to engage on 6V. Not much to it, but the trick will be finding someone that can modify the coil.
  13. 1913 Model 25 four cylinder. Needs an oil change. How many quarts does it hold? Does anyone have a shop manual or repair guide? It runs and drives but could sure use some maintenance.
