Thought you guys would like to see some pics... My original gauges were trashed, I used some Stewart Warner deluxe series gauges in my original bezel. And utilized the factory radio delete plate. :D662786627966280

NICE looking Custom Instrument setup! But, you need to order the Studebaker Parking Brake Handle repair kit, Studebaker was selling the "Improved" version '62-'63 Handle Kit back in the '60's for those poor/weak '59-'60 handles. :ohmy:

UPDATE: 08/16/17 11:36 PM changed items in Maroon.

my handle broke off a number of years ago and I pulled the handle and shaft from a 55 Commander. I disassembled the cable and sleeve. Then I had to use some JB weld to fill in the extra notches in the shaft that the 55 had that the 59 did not. I sanded and smoothed and it works great! I use it all the time. It is a steel chrome handle and will not break. The nice addition is that the chrome matches the chrome knobs on the dash!
