Recommended Posts

Hello all

 I started new project, Studebaker President ES sedan 1927. Car imported to Hanko Finland in february 1927 and was sold in March to taxi driver Guy Augustsson. Importer was Korpivaara & Halla (Toyota Finland today) and price was 120000 fmk. T- Ford tuoring paid 27400 fmk at the same time. Guy drive by Studebaker to year 1954, but car is out of use 1940 -1947 because of the war. In the sixties he sold car to young man, who started the restoration, but only dismantled the car. I bought this Studebaker April 2021. It was stil on parts, but i found almost all.

 

I need some parts for my car, can anybody help me?

- Instrument cluster with six holes (see picture)

-Door opening knobs and window regulators (picture)

-Ball & Ball SV33 float chamber lid (picture)

-Stop lamp glass lens (lamp with "Studebaker Stop" script)

-Grease hub caps (pictures)

-Six 0,020' (or larger) oversitze pistons and rings

-New crankshaft main bearrings

-Front bumber (Biflex)

Sorry to see that you had so few responses.

I belief that our Covid lockdown and the Christmas season with it's cold weather has something to do with this.I know that FINLAND get cold also.

I may be able to help you with some parts but I shut down for the winter because it cost more to heat my warehouse than I sell on parts.

Rest assured that somewhere you can find the parts you need and people will get answers for your questions .

It looks like you instrument cluster is complete ,Why are you looking for another one?

The door opening knobs have been reproduced and I have a pair but they have not been plated yet.

I have a engine core that need rebuilding from a model EW that is as far as I know the same engine.

The Big six engine parts maybe hard to find but I know several Studebaker owners that frequent these pages have rebuilt these engines and can give you advice.

Have a Wonderfull Christmas and when it warms up in the spring give me a reminder.

Yes, here is cold and dark. Not very cold, but VERY dark.

The door opening knobs sounds good! If i don't find good window cranks, i make new ones. Orginal zink cast parts is wery poor condition but here is brass founder, who can make casting works for me. https://iloinenvaskiseppa.com/

I dont need whole instrument cluster, only green face plate. (Fifth picture). I bought a new fuel gauge body from straight-eight.com, clock is ok, but i bought it to watchmaker for cleaning and oiling. The rest of the gauges i fixed myself.

Let's see in the spring, what parts you can find.

 

Merry Christmas and happy new year for all!

Sorry but I had a serious setback in my health.

I am 85 years old and don't spend enough time in my warehouse.

My granddaughter came to help me and I hope to find the small door locks.

Are you still looking for the hubcaps 3" opening?

Thanks rbk, bud Commander pistons don't fit to big six engine. I ordered new 0.030 oversitze piston set and complete valve set from Egge.

Your door lock knobs and window cranks look a bit different.  Thanks anyway!

He may have intended to put 1927? The Model EW Big Six Commander uses the same engine as the ES Big Six President.

I may have some interior handles you can use. I have attached a photo showing 1 interior window crank with a crack see photo. Maybe it can be used as a pattern. Shown are also interior escutcheons that were extras when I had my ES President, along with door knobs and oval rings. Interior door lock handles also. Not sure if you can use them, but for $50 for all, plus shipping I can send them too you. I also have rather nice pair of headlights from the ES and fans. Used front wheel bearings that are usable if you need them.

I used to have a 1926 EP Big Six and have some NOS hubcaps left if you still need any. I also have some NOS 1920‘s Studebaker door handles.
