1932 Studebaker 55 - Hood Hinge and Other Parts Wanted


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm still trying to source some parts:

Tapered hood hinge and rear cowl cover, kind of vital for holding the hood on.

Air cleaner for Stromberg S1.

Interior door mouldings for front doors.

Hub caps - an leads on where to get them?

Thanks,
Steve

I have some of the parts from a Model 54 hood.

It has the hinge but I don't know what a tapered hinge looks like.

I can not ship but you can stop by on your way to Indy.

Where are you located.

I tried to call the number you have listed back in 2008 to talk to you about parts... You say you have a large warehouse of parts... I have a 37 Sedan president and a 39 coupe... Can you call me as I do not get notification on this forum and then do not response on timely basis... 541 234 6440 or 541 414 5190 is my cell... If I am not in or miss your call leave a message regarding your number and when to call you back.   I have others that need parts as well.

What is wrong with that hinge?  looks good.  I have plenty of the hood rear hinge covers.  email studerex@aol.com

Nothing wrong with the one in the picture but I don't own one, I got the picture off one of the threads on here. I also need the rear cover.

On a somewhat related search, the chromed hinge, part # 1240XW, and 34-3/4" long, is intact on my '33 Rockne 10, but the center hinge supports are not. Part # 255317.

Should anyone come across them in their travels, or when parting out any '32, '33 Models 65, 75 or 10, I could certainly use two of them.

Thanks to Studerex I now have the hood hinge 😊, but need the front support bracket similar to Starlightcoupe's post above although mine would be part No.170898.

 

Just the following to find now:

Air cleaner for Stromberg S1.

Interior door mouldings for front doors.

Hub caps - an leads on where to get them?

And also a fuel pick up and sender.

 King-Seeley or Stewart-Warner?

 KM Lifestyle, worth giving them a call. https://mykmlifestyle.com/KM_Lifestyle_Fuel_Senders.html

I'm still looking for the following:

Air cleaner for Stromberg S1.

Interior door garnish mouldings for front doors.

Hub caps - any leads on where to get them?

And also a fuel pick up and sender - I emailed KM Lifestyle twice but haven't had a response. Any other leads?

 

Thanks,

Is anyone else able to contact KM Lifestyle for me, I suspect that they may not want to deal with overseas shipping etc at the moment as I'm from England.

Or, if anyone knows the Ohm range for Stewart Warner gauges I can see if an aftermarket sender would work.

Cheers,
Steve

I've finally had a response but not what I was expecting 😲

"We do not know of anyone selling a combination fuel sender. We could build you a custom direct\electric fuel sender, we would need some more information on that.

The estimated cost would be around $1,200usd. and about 3 months to build."

Any other options out there?

The ford unit is very similar.  Are you looking for hydrostatic or electric?

 

Hi Rex,

Its a Stewart Warner electric gauge. It would be good if the Ford unit would work but wanted to check the Omh range was the same.

Thanks

Sorry, been a little busy recently.

That looks perfect, the bonnet is 36" so a little extra on to the radiator and cowl would be idel.

Drop me a PM with the cost and postage to UK please.

Thanks,
Steve

I recall seeing this post last year...Now that my mom's model 55 is at the painter's,  it appears it too is missing the center hinge. Rex any chance you have another?
