jazzer3 Posted March 20, 2015 Share Posted March 20, 2015 At York I was informed by a long-long time Studebaker owner(Ken), that one is not enough. having bought our first Studebaker this past December I have, as of today, increased the number of our Studebakers to two. This has been much too quick but if I didn't buy it now it would have been "stuffed" away for another 47 years, last inspected between 1967 and 1968. There is a most apparent reason as to why it was parked. The floor is solid front to back, under the hood seems mostly unmolested, and the interior is driver friendly. The car must have been automatic originally, I have sent for the production order, need keys, it now is stick with a floor shift, probably Foxcraft. I didn't see a handle anywhere under the dash for overdrive and I couldn't get my head under far enough to see an overdrive solenoid but there is some kind of kickdown switch near the throttle linkage that our 57 Commander doesn't have. This will be put away until the 57 commander is on the road before I start taking anything else apart.I will have the resident body-man come and inspect it as it will have to be pulled on a frame machine.Are those factory seatbelts?The answer to a long life is to have a long list of things to do, ya need that challenge,Jay Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
