Hello All,

Happy new years to everybody.

I was looking for my 1957 President Sedan fender long chrome molding and i cant find it in Studebaker International ( maybe I overlook). Anybody know the part#? I did find the molding clips under part#1314710


here is a picture:

That is actually stainless, and I doubt it's available new. What's wrong with that one?

I can't see it well enough on my notebook, but I think that you may be referring to the clearance for the door to open and not damage (or it may have both).

Matthew - Can you help out with this stainless piece?

Matthew straightens and repairs stainless trim. These aren't available new anymore, but there's plenty of used ones still around if you want to look for them Part #1321002 Lefts and Rights are the same and ALL 57 sedans - Presidents, Commanders & Champions use these same ones. Only '57 Scostmans and '57 Hawks don't use it.;)

I LIKE that typo Bob! Maybe a better name for a Low "COST" Studebaker than a Scotsman! :D

Ok I took the moldings out and yes i was referring to the stainless molding on the fenders with the clearance for the door. I think they can be repairable. All my moldings are in pretty good shape maybe a couple dents but no holes or rusted, the previous owner when he painted the car left the moldings on and some have paint, am pretty sure there is something out there that i can clean of the paint and clean the stainless to make it shiny again.

Your car is coming along nicely! [^]

The stainless steel body side mouldings do not rust and they will buff out real nice if you have a pro straighten them first. :)

As was said here, used replacements are not hard to find though. [^]

Your ignition switch is an aftermarket replacement, you can buy the correct one at Studebaker vendors for $95.00 with the beveled BEZEL that twists on 1/4 turn, instead of that screw-on NUT, that will [u]scratch</u> your dash.

TIP: This is NOT listed but If you ask, you SHOULD be able to buy the bezel ONLY for cheap, that comes with the 800840 replacement switch on Pg. 175 of the S.I. Catalog. it is the correct screw-on replacement bezel for your switch! [^]

It looks like the door stop is not connected. Fix that before you put a new or repaired trim piece on.

Which ones are the door stop? Is it something besides the two hinges that the door have?

Yes, it keeps the door from opening too far and causing the damage that you have and it also serves to hold the door open.

No pic, but am willing to bet on this. It is a flat piece of steel that goes from the A pillar post to the front edge of the door, near and/or between the two hinges. It is probably about 1/2" wide and 1/16" thick. One end of it is fixed (maybe with a rivet hinge) and the other end slides in and out.

Look at the other door - or look at the front doors on the parts car.
