I found this piece of stainless trim today at the shop. Anyone guess what it's from? Is it even Stude stuff?

BTW, anyone got a spare tire mount for this truck? It goes inside the bed, against the cab. (Holes can be seen in the 1st pic)

IF that piece of trim is Studebaker it's gotta be prewar. (WWII Matt;))

As to your spare mount, that wouldn't be stock. It belongs under the rear of the bed, slung from the two frame rails. BTW, I've GOT the clamp that holds the spare up, if you're interested. You'd have to come up with the two long studs that hold it tight against the tire. Some 1/2" allthread would do fine.;)

Thanks Biggs. I think I'll pass on the spare tire mount. Seems like I recall the inside (of the bed) spare tire mount in a TW sometime back. I'll go check. ;)

OK. For myself, I want to find the side-mount setup. I've always thought that looked sharp. And besides that, I don't wanna take up valuable bed floor space with a spare.

Here's the thing tho. The GOOD thing for you! Reach around on the front side of the bed front - where those holes are. Is there a doubler there? If so, all you need is some allthread to MAKE your tire holder. Look at illustration # 1411 on page 412 of the 57 thru 61 truck parts book. You can MAKE 1411-19 with some allthread, a propane torch and a vise! A couple of washers, a wing nut and you're good to go.;)
You could CERTAINLY fudge 1411-15 with a bit of sheet metal and a vise if it isn't already in your truck!

There's a flat piece of steel bolted to the bed wall, if that's what you mean. [?] (I'll go take some pics.;))

Matthew if you have access to a 57-61 truck parts book, (3E to 6E) on page 412 illustration #1411, Spare tire mount inside the pickup box.

In the illustrations at the top of 412 the lower left is the one you're asking about.

Its also in the 7E/8E parts book page 354

Guess I should have read the whole message thread before posting<G>

Heck, all you need is the funky hook, the clamp and the wing nut! WHICH BTW, I see on the truck forum that SASCO shows to be in stock.;) You's truly a lucky feller!

I don't intend to haul nothing to big. I don't want the tire under the truck, then I'd have to crawl under it on the side of the road somewhere if I ever blew one out. I too would love to have a side mount with the fender cutout, but I just need something to get by with. I know what I'll be doing next Saturday; making a mount like Biggs is talking about! Thanks all! (If I can't make it, then I'll call SASCO; I like to make stuff. :D)

From what I saw this afternoon , seem's young Matthew like to make videos of studes cruising around town. I enjoyed them but would like some sound to go with them.

Yeah, that was George Klutkowski's cars. One's a '62 Daytona HT, and the other is a '38 Commander State sedan, which is 99% original, including paint and interior. (And NO RUST!!!) A nice couple of cars. I wish I could include sound too, but my digital camera doesn't have that on it. :(

P.S. I also made a video of walking through his bone yard. :D
