Hi, I'm new to the forum and I am hoping y'all can help me with my Studebaker build. I am 19 and I go to college at McPherson college Kansas and I am majoring in Automotive Restoration. http://www.mcpherson.edu/autorestoration/ Here is the link to the program I am in. I need some help with my 1949 2R16a project. Does anyone know where I can find cheap parts for the truck? One in precise is I need a new Intake, mine has several cracks right next the the exhaust manifold. Any help would be appreciated, or if you have any knowledge of these trucks let me know I want to know.

Thanks guys.

Welcome to the Forum! The closest and your best bet would be Laverne Ediger 204 E.9th st. Halstead, KS. He has lots of Studebaker stuff, especially truck stuff. He can be reached at three one six eight three zero-two six three four.

Luke,
WELCOME !
You've chosen a good program at McPherson. The Studebaker National Foundation has, in fact, awarded scholarships at McPherson. You may want to look in to that.
http://www.studebakernationalfoundation.org/

You are going to need the factory parts catalogs so you can identify by part number and, quite probably, the factory shop manual.
These are available from many of our fine Studebaker vendors.
http://www.studebakervendors.com/

Your greatest overall resource is going to be TURNING WHEELS, the monthly publication of the Studebaker Drivers Club. It will provide links to any information you will ever need.

I'm a sucker for a student of auto restoration, especially one with a Studebaker. Send me a private message so I can pay for your membership in the SDC.

What size is your engine?

An R16 SHOULD be a Big Six, 245 c.i.d. as used '49 to 1950 Commanders and trucks to 1960 if still original.

Also very close to the same as a 226 c.i.d. earlier Truck or Commander Car Engine.

I'm thinking Luke has the 245,but maybe 226 ?

What size is your engine?

Yes, I have the 245ci engine, I appreciate the help I will definitely give that man in Halstead a call. I am trying to complete this build with quality but also in a budget. I will join the truck forum soon. I am still waiting on my first issue of Turning Wheels, once I get it I will look up the resources it provides. I will also look into the scholarships that the Studebaker national Foundation has. I will give you an email soon, thank you very much for the help.

Hello hannanlu; Welcome to the wonderful world of Studebaker trucks (and Studebakers in general)!! 2R5 has given you excellent advice about joining in with all the Studebaker truck nuts on STUDEBAKER TRUCK TALK.

If you would like to post me your serial number, model code and data from the metal tags on the driver's foot well wall. Also the code/cab number from the right side of the cowl under the hood, I would be glad to decode this ID information for you. Best wishes.

I have this and that laying around from a few 2R16s I parted out thru the years. I don't have a manifold, but I know I've got a brake booster or two and other small bits as well. Anything I might have would be yours for the cost of shipping.
