I got what appears to be some sort of hood emblum for what I think is out of the 40s for $5 at a show the other day. Only not really shure what it's off of. Starting to think it might be early production or expariemental-[?] Today I fineally got a chance to sit down and get a good look at it and I didnt notice it before, but it does have a number on it: X0-675. It is chrome, semi long but a funny looking triangular shape to it with seven circles or "dots" that line the top and has gold colored "squared off" "S" on it. It is in basically NOS condition, thats why I got it. Anybody know what it is or able to trace the number?[?][?][?]

"Seven dots across the top." Sounds like that funky dash board piece from 50,51,52? Can't remember which year, but someone will. I'm sure that's it.

EDIT: Just got into my one parts book. '50 Champion. #291081WP used on glove box door. BTW: Dots go on bottom.;) Pics, anyone?

I hereby make a motion to nominate Chris as Ambassador To South Bend and suggest we chip in to by him a digital camera so he can keep us abreast of the activity in South Bend (Studebaker) Indiana.

Go to the top of the previous page and read Bob Shaws instructions and watch his YouTube video. Then with some trial and error, you will get it! As for pitching in to buy you a camera, I would be in favor of doing that as long as you can save building #92. :)

I remember a thread where it was debated which side is supposed to be up with this emblem. [:0]

Well, got it because I thought it might look good on the "Lawn-Lark." I think it looks good up or down, so maybe I should mount it sideways![:p] lol

Parts book shows it with dots on bottom. But the same illustration shows the mounting holes in glove box door that would orient it with the dots on top--which I believe is correct.

NO COMMENT!

Just remember Chris hasn't had years of Stude-watching yet, and needs time to study every piece of chrome and little details on each one. What may be common knowledge to us is likely new to our 'under-20' members here!!! I can get fooled at times; even on my own cars that I've owned for years and years![B)] When I bought my late '66 Commander (Moby Grape) in 1982, which I first saw in 1979. I totally assumed from the start, the chrome Stant oil fill cap was an after market item. When I got my late '66 Commander 2 door last year, did it also had the same chrome Stant oil filler cap on it which I though was highly coincidental. Then, one all of the sudden appears on Ebay under a Studebaker part number.[:0] Now, thanks to Andy Petrass (aka R2Andy) who did some investigating for me, confirmed this IS a 'factory' Stude part, and its only recently I found out its correct for Moby Grape and the 'paintball' car!

It came from the factory on my car with the dots on top.

And I should've used emoticons on my "common" post. I was presenting a humorous attitude. :)

I'm pretty sure dots go on bottom. I saw one in Roswell in the early fifties. It's pretty cool that Studebaker also used it as a dash emblem!!!;)
