Lets see pictures of your Antique Cars you have and drive. I will start OK


Recommended Posts

As you know I only have one Studebaker but several other makes.

My son & I have a 36 Dictator. No overdrive so it's within 45 miles of home,usually. We did haul it to Cedar Rapids Iowa in 2009,

for the Iternational Meet.

I like that. How long have you had it. Tell me more about it.

I have had my President Brougham for 14 years. It was not running when I bought it and I spend the first winter working to get it running the spring of 2001. The prior owner had it for 30 years and it only ran briefly when he first got it. It sat untouched for the next 30 years. The prior owner stated he bought the car in the late 60s from a guy who acquired it from an auction of abandoned property at a storage company. The person who abandoned it at the storage facility did so after painting it solid red, rebuilding the engine, and installing new (incorrect) upholstery. The President has a very old (30s) gas station service sticker from Coos Bay, Oregon.

Here are pictures of what it looked like when I bought it. Here are some before and after pictures of the President. post-30688-143142457227_thumb.jpg

I have 3 cars. A 1940 Comander that I spent 7 years restoring. Did all the work myself except the paint job. I have traveled all around the northeast in it. It does have over drive. My second car is an mostly original 1928 royal dictator type 2. I keep this on the road as a local driver. The last car is my 10 year project a 1922 Light Six Roadster with a 1924 light six engine. Still not running but many systems rebuilt.

Lots of very nice cars on this forum. I love the pictures that have been posted. here very few Studebakers. In fact mine is the only one here in Waynesburg, Pa. There was a fellow about 30 miles that use to have sveral but he passed away a few years ago. I hope the pictures keep coming for all us to see. Thanks for the pictures and stories.

Ken, When I was a kid my dad would drive us down from Washington, PA just to get an ice cream cone in Waynesburg!

Are you looking for all Studebakers or just pre war? The Studebaker Drivers Club Forum has a page specifically for posting vehicle photos.

Here's a link to photos of my Rockne.

My 4 Studebakers here in the UK, the silver car is a 1930 Commander, the Burgundy one is a 1928 Dictator, the primed car is a 1926 big 6, and the green one is a 1926 standard 6.

The standard 6 recently came from California and I am very grateful to Mark Houston for helping me to buy this car!!

I enjoyed the opportunity to look at the roadster for you. Your collection of Studebakers is fantastic and the Standard 6 roadster looks like it found the perfect home.

This is my 1928 Studebaker Commander Big Six Victoria model GB.

It runs well and gets to local car shows here in far southern Illinois

when the weather is OK for it to be outside. The 354 CID big six is

a powerful engine and it climbs hills with the best of them all.

The engine compartment photos shows the refinished splash apron

panel being replaced.

Great looking car John! Everyone I know who has the Big Six attests to its hill climbing prowess. Bob Valpey claims that his Big Six Duplex climbs the hills in new Hampshire a lot better than his '31 President Eight roadster.
