Guest 1952 RH Drive Stude


I am trying to restore my RH Drive Studebaker. It is a 1952, and I believe it is a Starliner. Maybe someone out there can tell me if there were many of these available in the states that are RH drive. I need a passenger window and two rear windows, left center and right center. This is set up as a two seater. Can someone tell me if these were ever used as Mail cars.

It is, in fact, a Starlight coupe not a Starliner hardtop. Studebaker referred to these as "5-passenger coupes"; three in the front, two in the back. I believe all RHD models were made for export. The Starlight was a pricier model than most mail carriers would want.

Your passenger window is flat glass and can be cut and installed by any reputable glass shop. There are a couple of vendors who sell new backlights for the Starlight; probably a better deal than trying to have someone ship used glass. The gasket set is also available from Stude vendors.
