The number in your frame, 6019181 is listed as a 1930 FE President.   The 1930 FE President frame serial numbers started at 6,016,001 ended at 6,022,000.

Hello everyone, I tell you that I already have the free chassis to work. I am analyzing cutting the chassis and my feeling is not to cut, but if someone with experience recommends me to do it, I listen to it with interest. Between the axles it is 135 inches it is quite long and I want the boat tail ratio to be proportional to the scale of the car. I leave you a photo. cheers .

Now that serial number stamping on the frame is interesting!

 

That font/typeset was usually reserved for 'experimental', 'engineering' or 'pilot' vehicles. (Please see link to one of these cars here: https://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/forum/your-studebaker-forum/general-studebaker-specific-discussion/115092-1961-lark-marshal-what-we-are-learning )

Hello everyone, I will tell you details of my project.  I have finally received a new engine from a FE President Victoria.  rotates and so far looks good.  I wanted to know if someone can help me with the factory compression of the pistons.  I don't need the compression ratio.  I have also received my 19 rim set. I am looking for 700-gauge Excelsior Tires The Comp H for vintage racers tires.  Any recommendation?
 Thanks !!

Hi all. Looks like Nicolas has a fun project going on.

I have  a 1928 FA frame and a bunch of parts that I am going to use for a racer build. Is the frame number is a similar place? My frame did not come with  a serial number tag tag.

Dave,

Mike McManus had a used car Dealership called "Atlantic Auto Sales" in Gardena. Here is the update on the car your Dad missed.

Hello Friends, I leave you progress of my project. The engine that Rex sold me is very good, a solid block. The cylinder head is already rectified. I have bought some original NOS pistons that I bought in the Netherlands. They waited for me 90 years! Incredible they were oversized.

I only have the issue of connecting rods pending, I hope I can babbitted in the United States there are very good companies. I leave you a couple of photos .
