Does anyone out there have a Fulton Visor and any window visor on their Studebaker? If so can you please take a couple pictures of how it is attached from the outside and inside of the cab roof?

Thanks

I do not know the Brand or have closer up Pics, but here is all I have of an eBay '63 Transtar 8E13 1 Ton with a P2 Box.

I think it looks very gaudy, but hey it's your Truck! :)

The one-piece fiberglass visor on my '51 coupe was still in the Studebaker accessory box when I got it. Other types, OEM, Fulton, etc. could be one-piece or two-piece and could require a center post to attach for stability. I have seen two-piece visors on Studebakers with one-piece "bent" windshields. If the windshield was not split and did not have the center divider, there was a post that attached to the center of the cowl. A bracket would extend from the center of the visor to that post.

I used to think these were dorky, but I must say, I am intrigued...

Oh, they can be dorky. too!
One thing to consider is wind noise, and wind buffeting.
Most of these were destined for cars in the warmer climates...to keep the direct sunshine heat out.
And that was at a time when most people drove around at 45mph or so...
Ramp it up to the legal 70MPH nowadays and they can make quite a bit of wind noise.
And your mounts best be stout, as the buffeting will be constant.
Make sure a trained Studebaker technician does your installation.

Beyond that... They are cool!
