09-08-2006, 10:57 PM
I am redoing a 1957 Studebaker built by Midwest Industries. Thank goodness someone produced one years ago. It is a "sort of" '57 Studebaker, but most pedals were. I purchased the car at the Goodguys show swap meet in Kansas City a week ago. I have media blasted the car, at least 3 old coats of paint and I left some of the original light blue on the underside out of sight, and primed the rest of it. I'm looking for parts for this rare car. Have any parts, or sources ??? See the car in Omaha finished or not....thanks....brad

Are you considering putting any "real" Studebaker parts on it, if you can't find the correct replacement parts? That could be a conversation piece.

I've been watching ebay for Stude parts that might work. Something may be listed. Any suggestions ???...Brad

These should be all of the parts you need:

They have some neat pedal car reproductions. I think my grandson NEEDS one!

I found another Studebaker parts source on ebay last night. www.kidillacs.com . I have also purchased pedal cars from Speedway before and just this week insulation for a car. A company with faster than quick delivery and a pedal car museum. Don't miss this car, engine, and parts museum if you are on your way to Omaha....Brad

I talked to a gentleman at the Omaha event and he named about 5 model years a Studebaker pedal car was manufactured including one mfg in Italy. Does anyone have photos of these pedal cars in the several years like: '53 '57 etc.....BRAD

Brad, have you ever been to the Armacost Museum in Grandview, MO? They have quite a few pedal cars. You might be able to see a similar one for reference.
