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.

Hi All,

 

I'm not having much luck finding these parts - anyone got any leads?

 

For the hood hinge can someone who has a 1932 Model 55 measure it for me? Length, width and height at the front end and rear end?

 

Thanks in advance,

Steve

I would think the right one for a model 55 should be around more than the more rare longer ones.  I have been looking for a Commander hinge for awhile, but less  Commanders were made.

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.
