    50 headlight buckets

    Are these worth repairing? I don't need them but am willing to repair a small rust spot if someone needs them. (One adjustment is missing)
    Free,.. Just pay shipping costs.

    Also if offering something like this is inappropriate let me know but I hate to see them waste away.

    I bet someone will want them. They fit 50 champs and I think all 1951 cars

    If no one claims them immediately, I would still recommend the repair; then at least prime them.
    Just bump this post again in a few days so more folks get a chance to see it.

    Geez, four pages back but I found the post.
    I repaired the rusty damage with steelstik and a little Bondo. Also noticed I don't have a right and a left if there is supposed to be. Available for shipping.

    Great job, Dean. I have several sets for my 50 Champions that are in about the same condition as yours were. I thought about just getting your set, but someone probably needs them worse then I do. Mine are repairable and it's all a part of restoring years of rust into a drive-able car.
    I just wanted to thank you for making these items available to someone that truly needs them instead of trashing them. Happy Studebakering. Ken

    Can someone with a '50 chassis manual confirm what the Base (bucket that surrounds the lamp) part number is? If it's the same one used in '41 (ref:#274275) I will gladly take them off your hands.

    From my 1950 Chassis Manual:

    289714 is used up to G-524,119
    292133 used on G-524,119 and later

    I wonder what the difference is?

    I wonder myself since they don't look much different than those on a '41

    After that don't ask.

    Dean.
