Don't call! Not unless you're willing to hear this guy's life story. And if that ain't bad enough, he really doesn't HAVE any Flight-o-matics OR Ultramatics, but he'll gladly rebuild yours for you.
For instrance, a late Flight-o-matic for a V8 - a mere $2450.00 if you remove and reinstall it![:0][xx(]

It was sorta funny, talking to this fella. He claimed he'd been rebuilding automatics since horse 'n buggy days![:0] Curiously, he'd never heard of a Studebaker Automatic. He even question whether I was wrong or not about such having existed.
Finally - with my help - he found mention of them in a book he had near his desk. He was amazed that he'd never seen one before (the book had pictures, you see), but assured me that if I wanted one built - he was the guy to do it![8]

[:0]Indeed, Bob! We'll have to wait for Gary Hearn to verify which automatics were available when in the horse & buggy days. (IIRC, the Studebaker Brothers alternately used Horse-Flite or Equestrian-Glide, depending on who gave them the best deal in a given year. Light-duty buggies used Pony-Flow exclusively, again if memory serves. But Guido will have to confirm.) [}:)] BP

Bob is correct on the buggies, but the new wagon I have is equipped with the exclusive Hoof Torque arrangement.
