Hi Folks ,
Been lurking for a while and asking a few questions re panels etc .
So here is the reason why ....
I visited well know Studebaker man in the UK , Bill Baker , who had purchased a 1925 chassis from me and whilst we were having a walk around with him we saw a car under a cover . It had been sat there for some 10 years and had been in storage prior to that for a long time .
As the cover came back to reveal the front - and the rust
Once collected and back at my workshop - although it has suffered from the British Weather and the rust fairies , its fairly complete and the engine is free
However , inside the car where quite a few nice surprises - for example a pair of NOS bumpers
New grill inserts - again NOS in original boxes
Interior is a little shabby but is complete - including keys
I have a large selection of NOS lights and lenses and well as glass - grill surrounds etc
So thats what we have at the moment - Ive applied for the V5 ( registration Document ) and will have to wait to see what they do about that before i can get into the rust repair .
ill keep you updated as i go .
If anyone needs any bits please give me a shout as i have quite a lot with the car - please bare in mind I'm in UK though so postage to states could be expensive .
