...you know, to protect from the sun when the car is outside! Can't think of the actual term. Someone in the club used to sell them, correct-width for a Lark and with "Studebaker" on them. Don't see them in SI's catalog. Does anybody know what vendor(s) might sell them?

Thanks!

A quick check on eBay, shows that sun visor, sun shade, heat shield, etc. will get you in the ball park with a bunch of other junk thrown in.:):cool:;)

Back in Texas there was a car guy who would show up with an original dash car who had a vinyl cover to go over the outside of the windshield. He said his upholstery guy made it and they installed some magnets along the edges so it would stay attached in the wind and still keep the sun off the dash

Bill...sorry I didn't read close enough...I realize you are looking for one with "STUDEBAKER" graphics.

Newman and Altman used to sell them. Still have mine (badly faded).

Hmmm... would love to have one in each car. However, there is only one visor in Bess, none in Wilbur, and it's too late for Ed. How I would keep them up is a puzzler.

With how cheap screen printing can be, would be cool to make it look like promotional stuff you might see on/in a car when it was new on the lot...
