Anyone going to Louisville swap meet have 52 champion fenders? Or will there be any Studebaker vendors at the Louisville swap meet? I am hoping to grab two front fenders for a 52 Champion. Supposedly Louisville swap meet is one of the largest swap meets in the mid west.

Anthony:
I have a very nice pair of '52 front fenders. They are for a Commander, but Champion is the same. I'd love to trade them for a pair of '52 rear fenders (for a 2 door). Only problem is I'm in California and you are not very close. Shipping by Greyhound is usually reasonable, though. Let me know what you think at brngarage@gmail.com.
Thanks

I live 35 miles south of Louisville Kentucky, and the only Louisville swap meet I am aware of is the Street Rod Nationals in late July/August. Is there another swap meet in Louisville ? If so, when and where?

I think I can wait until then. NOS would be the way to go. Do you have any other NOS 52 parts? Such as bumpers? I have bumpers, but they need to be blasted and re-chromed.

The bumpers don't need to be NOS, just nice bumpers

OK guys on the 52 note I have a hard top and am looking for any belt line trim parts I can get.

Thanks,

Dean.

I am told it is a 52 Champion Regal Starlight Coupe... So body style is a two door hard top... I know it is a Starlight as it has wrap around windows in the back... Don't really know if it is a Regal or not. I guess I should do a VIN breakdown sometime.

Anthony, the hardtop is different than the model with wrap around windows. The numbers on the tag on the engine side of the firewall will confirm what you have.

Joe, could it be this one?

It definitely is a Starlight Coupe. I will do a VIN breakdown soon. The car is in my Dads garage. So I can't lookup the VIN until the weekend. I might dig out the title in my safe tomorrow. Would there be a difference in fenders anyways? Do all 52 Champions have the same front fendors?

Yes. You can use any Champion OR Commander front fender for that matter. Unlike other years there was no extra length built into the front of any of the 52 models.
Even that land cruiser on the longer wheelbase had the length added in the rear, not the front.
