I'm putting my 56 president back together, and the carpets are a bit shabby. I have a way to get a carpet set back from south bend- but was wondering which vendors there would have one? Any help would be appreciated.

You can order one from Studebaker International and pick it up at their South Bend store, and get a 10% off discount.

Be sure to specify if the carpet is for a President or President Classic. That is one of the areas where the difference shows up right away!

I'm sure Ed R. may chime in here, but Studebaker International's carpet sets, as well as those from many other Vendors, are special order, with at least a 30 day delivery time.
Aside from finding an occasional NOS set, I don't believe there are any Vendors who make Studebaker carpet sets on speculation. You may however sometimes find that S.I. has some carpets sets on sale that for one reason or another end up "in stock".
I picked one up for a 4 door Lark that is going to work great in my Champ Truck!

You would think someone would on the c/k cars in colors like black and red as they fit so many years. Same with headliners. On the Gt's they are all the same except 64 and even there if you used a 62-63 very few would know.

Right on. I didn't plan ahead with my GT but if someone had one there, I would buy it.
