    Used Studebaker Radiator Value [ Picture Added]

    I have a bunch of Studebaker radiators in the barn. Is there a value for them or just take them to the scrape yard. I think I have about 6. I know there is a 49 C-Cab and a 48 and some 56 Commanders and some Larks. If any body is interested I can bring them to South Bend.

    They have core value even if they are unusable as they are. Don't scrap them.

    I was offered $25 a piece for the radiators today. But they didn't want the 49 truck radiator. Anybody want them for that? I would rather sell them to a Studebaker guy.

    Carl, are you willing to box them and ship via Greyhound? If so, I'd be interested in the Commanders.

    The only problem is I am 30 miles from the nearest Grey Hound.

    2 of the radiators came out of these 2 cars. I think the Lark is a 61 I can't remember. It's been about 10 years. The Lark got a aluminum radiator 383 Dodge 883 4 speed with a Ford 9 inch 325 gears.

    A Lark radiator will fit in a '56 Commander. However, they aren't the same. The top of the '56 radiator is arched, whereas the Lark's is flat.

    That's why I'm interested in the '56 radiators. I have a Lark radiator in Bess.

    If any of you norcal guys are in need of a 50-ish truck radiator and core support, I think my brother still has one in his shed and I'm sure it'd be pretty cheap.

    Radiators

    The going price in the Seattle area at the recycler is $1.65/lb. Folks don't step forward to buy this stuff when it is offered for sale then ask why you scrapped it. We have a lot of Champion heads, manifolds, distributors, carbs, fuel pumps, transmissions, etc. that have been advertised for sale cheap, and nobody seems interested. Sorry to say, but a lot of it will go to the scrap yard. The heavy stuff is too difficult and expensive to ship.

    If anyone has need of a 56 gh radiator I have one I was preparing to put on ebay. It looks pretty good. I am preparing to pressure test to make sure it is solid.

    True statement right there. I just scrapped out an early '60s dodge short bed due to lack of space and lack of interest. I'm sure everyone that's into those trucks will belly ache if they hear it, but nobody stepped up to the plate.

    Hey Don,
    It is Jim Pierce. I came up and picked up that stuff for Roy Valdez. Do you have any parts for a 62 GT Hawk? It is a long drive but I do need some things.

    Hey Jim, We don't have anything for a GT Hawk. Most of the parts are for 1950 and 1951 and cars that could interchange mechanical parts for these years. You might try this guy. He is in Maple Valley which is Southeast of Seattle. don@northwestpartsource.com That is his e-mail address. He probably can't give you a response for a specific part, but is having weekly garage sales for dealer inventories and salvaged parts.
