    I bought 29 Studebaker dealer parts inventories over the years as a retirement project.
    I have a 105 year old, 38.000 sq.ft. building full of parts.

  1. Rick I send you some pictures. I can send you some lock cylinders for you to try. I have several for you to try. Text me your shipping address Robert Kapteyn
  2. Patrick When your problems are solved ,I have some rear fenders from Scott here. when the weather warms up I can try to find part numbers. Email me at studebaker@mac.com. Make sure you put "studebaker" in the subject line otherwise it goes straight to the trash. Robert Kapteyn
  3. Rick A picture would be helpful and a part number. I have many unidentified locks. interchange with other years?
  4. I have been sorting some relined brake shoes. I have two axle sets of shoes with these numbers stamped on the shoes. FD 8961 and FD 8962. My brake shoe list only goes back to 1951. They look like prewar Champion shoes but can someone confirm this? Update: I misread the numbers they are FD 8461 and FD 8462.These fit Fits: Studebaker front and rear 1953-14G, 1952-12G, 1951-10G, 1950-9G,1949-8G, 1948-7G, 1947 6G and rear only on 1953-4H, 1952-3H, 1951-2H. These are available and if you need these , please PM me. These are original asbestos shoes. No core charge, Robert Kapteyn studebaker@mac.com

  6. The best way is to email me part numbers. I have my inventory on my laptop at home I can check and let you know. Include the car you have and a short description of the part you need. studebaker@mac.com
  7. Sorry about that! My new phone number is my cell number 815 212 2389. I am having health problems and have been staying home. The temperature will be -25F tonight and I am staying inside. It cost more to heat that building than I sell on parts. Wait till it warms up. My email to use is studebaker@mac.com I do not use other ones for Studebaker related inquiries. Thanks Bob
  8. I have a robe rail with the same chrome brackets and it looks like the same type robe. I can not look for it until spring but if you do not find these before April , email me at studebaker@mac.com. Bob
  9. This has nothing to do with the original question but is a comment on later answers. SI has several truck wiring harnesses in stock that are not in their catalog. These are mostly for oddball applications, so if you have a part number , call them. Or if you want to gamble , most "C" cab applications up to 1964 are modifiable.The larger late trucks had a few extra wires etc.for clearance lights etc.
  10. Rhode Island makes them with original looking wires.
