A good friend of mine is currently restoring one of
those 1938 two doors , here in Sydney Australia .
His one has the unusual shape front headlamps .
The original colour of his car was white . It had
been in storage for thirty years until mid last
year when the restorarion started . He's going to
do the repaint in the original white colour .

That one doesn't have those cool headlights. Is that early vs. late?

It looks as if the middle bumper guard is on upside down. Was this something the owner did himself or were there models that had that?

That one is a 7A Six model. The Commander 8 (8A) and Presidents used the cathedral style headlights.

Is it actually a pure appliance white shade? Or is it Tulip Cream; a cream color.

I got an email this morning from a lady in Australia who read my article in TW on Harry Barnes' '38 Commander. She wrote to tell me about a similar car her and her husband owned in years past. Said it had the vacuum shifter that so few seem to have been ordered with. She said the car still survives "down under".

Always good to see '38's come out of the woodwork. :)

Looks like maybe Easter morning in possibly... Santa Barbara, or... Los Angeles... or maybe San Diego.

The more I get into this hobby, the more I like the pre-war Studes. I am actually getting to be able to roughly start to Identify them! Nice.

That will be the third '38 I've seen/read about with the Miracle-Shift still intact.
