I need sources for sheet metal, used, NOS, patch panels or ??? for a '52 4 door Commander. What is the fix for a spare tire well nearly eaten away on the bottom of course. Need door mounted rear view mirror to match the one on the car if these were from the factory. The mount is there but the mirror is gone on the right door. Consider other '52 Parts---hubcaps, etc.......Thanks...Brad

Where are you located? There is always sheet metal for 52s at the York and Reedsville swap meets in PA.

Brad,

I've got a spare tire well that I carefully detached from the floor of a '51. Where again are you?

The bodies were basically the same from '47-'52, but quite a few trim and mechanical changes happened during those years.

Sometimes SASCO and Stude International have parts that aren't necessarily in their catalog. Why not try them just to see if they even carry sheet metal parts any more. I'm thinking about when I visited SASCO a few years ago at the Int'l Meet and they had some sheet metal stuff. Of course, that was before they moved to their present location.

SASCO has nearly nothing pre 56 in the way of sheet metal. Studebaker International sells the mirrors and Classic sells the trunk panels too.

They're interchangeable as far as the rears go. 4-drs fenders for 4-drs and 2-drs fenders for 2-drs. Of course, there's differences in the taillight mounting holes. 50-up are essentially the same in that respect and 49-down as well. Front fenders have more limitations. Doors swap as you might expect save for the rears of the LC and the doors of ragtops and the 52 hardtop being to themselves.[8D]

The fenders will bolt on. But that's all you will have to have 52 only fronts. I believe 50,51 and 52 fenders will fit the back

ok since we are on the topic of sheet metal, I know that a certian 59 Lark is going to need some new floorboards, anyone know were some are or should I just flat sheetmetal welder bob a new set? I know my techincal jargon will amaze even the most gifted shadetree.

Classic Enterprizes makes the floorpans you need.:D Now if it was just a small hole, I'd patch it. In fact, the rear floors of my wagon were a bit perforated and I fiberglassed them.[^]

Here's the spare tire well I mentioned. It's been probably 6 or 7 years since I last looked at it! It DOES have a little hole rusted thru it but it's very localized. The rest of it's solid. Of course, it has that 2" drain hole right in the very bottom.
In the forward part of it, you can fleck off some of the undercoating (this is inside now) and still see traces of primer. This piece came out of the trunk of my '51 Biz coupe but they're all the same aft floorpan.:)

Yeah, well, most of my sheet metal HAS to sit outside since I don't have room to keep in under cover. But then, with an average annual rainfall of 11", it's not what you'd call humid here most the time. That's part of the reason I can stand this place when it's over a 100 in the summer months. I have LESS than fond memories of working on my Studes outside Atlanta when it was 90 and aware of every river of sweat running down my carcass![xx(]
I DO make an attempt to situate sheet metal to where it won't hold water when it does rain here. But that's not always easy or practical. [B)]

Bob,

It sounds as if we need to send some of the Studebaker buggy driving Amish in your neighborhood over for a good old fashioned barn raising. :D
