Studebaker really 'got it right' by 1931! By the way, I think that the metal covers for the dual sidemounts on the chocolate job really have a nicer look than the exposed spare tires.

The brown car is a '32 President model 91. Nothing on it that you can see will interchange with the other car which is a '31 model 80 President. The '32 is relatively rare whereas the '31s are quite plentiful (kinda like '59 Larks).

Whoops....I just noticed the front opening door on the '32!!.....But really, NOTHING visible on the two pictured vehicles will interchange?

Yes, that is correct. Well on second thought I am thinking the cloisonne badge in the radiator shell will interchange.

Both look pristine.

The '32 is about 90% original, never restored.

Are they priced like '59 Larks, Dick?

I noted a '31 for sale recently on Ebay for $179,000. I don't keep up with '59 Lark prices so you will have to tell me how that compares. i am guessing they are very close.

Only the six cylinder 4-doors bring that type of coin...

So IIRC the '32 Model 90 has a 136" wheel base and the '31 model 80 has a 130"wheel base. There were no 130" wheel base Roadsters in '32 & '33, is that correct? Where on the body of the Model 90 did the add the extra 6"? Was there a '31 Model 90 4 Seasons Roadster with a 136" wheel base?

In '31 the the Presidents were offered on two wheelbases, the model 80 was 130" and model 90 136." Not all body styles were offered on both wheelbases. For example you could not buy a roadster or coupe on the longer model 90 wheelbase. There were no 130" roadsters in '32 or '33 only 136." 1931 was the only year the roadster was referred to as the Four Season, in '32 they were called convertible coupes. Generally the extra length was behind the front door.
