Has there ever been a complete list of Studebaker Accessory numbers published in TW?
I ran into this one on Ebay, and can't recall seeing one this low (AC-180)...

I don't recall ever seeing such a list. It would be interesting to see such WITH descriptions as to what was included in each one. I have seen some 3-digit AC numbers. In fact, I think I have one here - a pair of robe rails if I remember right.:)

I'm struggling to imagine what AC-1 would have been....[?]
A pair of gloves for the wheelbarrow, or a buggywhip?;)

R. Quinn did a couple articles on accessory booklets that will answer most of your questions. June 2000 and June 2001 TW. In both articles he mentioned that Studebaker didn't begin actively merchandising accessories until 1930. He also mentioned in both articles that the lowest number he knew of is AC-3.

Yes, I have all of the accessory numbers back to 1930. The AC-3 was a Philco Transitone radio installed at the factory which carried a list of $99.80. That amounts to about $1074 in 2007 money according to the "inflation calculator."

The trunk, AC-180, which ended without meeting the reserve was offered for the 1933 line but could be retrofitted to the '32's. List on it was $16.00 or $17.50 in color. This translates to approx. $216 to $230.00 in today's dollars.

Certainly not a complete source, but the old parts price books had a blue section in the front that listed all the available accessories with good descriptions of their applications. A LOT of AC items never show up in the parts books themselves (service iems, etc.).
