Hello all. I was wondering if anyone out there has a set of bumper mounted fog lights for sale. I wish to add them to my Commander sedan. I would also like to buy a fog light switch if possible so I can set them up like the OEM. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm not particular about condition as long as they are complete.

If yours is an early production, without the the curved windshield, the switch is available new, part #536292. Also be aware, the '53-54 fog light housings appear the same as the '55 but they are not. The earlier housings will not fit the '55 bumper. Be certain you are purchasing from someone who can verify the fit.

Hello there. Thanks for the info. I'm afraid that my car is a post Jan-1955 production with the curved windshield. I was aware that the 53 and 54 are different. I would like to add them to my 55 sedan as they give the car a good profile. Do you know who might have a set? Thanks again

They are out there and you will find them. I had one right side housing I sold at the Reedsville swap meet in November. It was triple show plated but did not include the bucket and bulb. The bucket, bulb and commensurate hardware would be the same from '53 up; just the housing is different.

I sold a pair last year. They were for 1955. http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/showthread.php?61500-Studebaker-Fog-Lights-for-Sale&highlight=1955+fog+lights+sale

They also show up on Ebay now and then, price is around $300 or more for nice ones. Replated ones will cost more.
