Here is a site for various Studebaker vendors.
I personally purchased my rubber parts from Studebaker International but there are others.

I don't endorse any particular vendor but see that Studebaker International has a rubber kit for your car including pretty much everything you need that can save you about 70-80 dollars over individual pricing.

Sorry, not sure what happened. It was supposed to be the direct page to the rubber products at SI.

I didn't mean to, either, because many vendors carry those new rubber items. But, I would endorse 41 Frank if he had them... someone has to deplete that stash of parts so that the truck and trailer are less heavy next time. :D

Thanks for the promo Dave, however rubber seals are the one rubber item we don't handle.

Bill Fennessey, Champ Specialty Parts, & studebakerparts.com(Chuck Collins) are the 3 biggest rubber parts vendors other than SI. Studebakers West & a few others also carry rubber seals.

You want a 800993R $639.00 it comes with the 1942X2 Windshield Seal & Rear Glass Seal. Rear Glass is not a W/S.
You have the AVANTI kit!

You do not need all those individual Rubber seals unless they are not in the Kit, and certainly NOT the Station Wagon Rear Glass Seal!

Be sure you give them the 57H-W6 Model Code!

I guess this is a good example of how bad the on-line "shopping carts" are!
Most Co's have a "Programmer" who has 0 experience with the Product, write the code to produce these things, and you get all the errors, cost and misunderstandings, and they get the Labor savings.

If you just send them the $3.50, get the paper catalog, call them up, read the items numbers of the items you want off to the friendly, somewhat knowledgeable order taker, you will get confirmation spoken back to you as to the item description & price so there will be MINIMUM errors. Then you will not be having all the frustration, arguements and THREE times the UPS Shipping cost to pay!

or, download the pdf version of the catalogue, and then call.
