Very COOL Big Four Studebaker Tool! I bet that very nice Decal is not part of that rusty Tire Changer, maybe a captured photo from the Internet?

Cool!! Should be in my shop next to my fleet. I'll bet it works great on the super narrow Studebaker wheels which I have seen bent by new equipment due them not being used to seeing such a narrow rim.

For the record Studebaker did not purchase "BIG FOUR" until August 1966 or five months after they assembled their last car in Hamilton. BIG FOUR was headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio and made tire changers, hydraulic jacks and other similar specialty tools. The BIG FOUR division also later absorbed Studegrip that made tungsten-carbide tire studs. The division was sold in 1969.
