Thanks

I have seen them, but they are rarer than Packard Hawk parts! I wish they used the Red and Blue background for them, instead of plain grey.67783

Not trying to sidetrack this post, but I assume it is the same for the R4 emblems as well. A few years ago I was at the Goodguys car show in Indian Wells (Palm Springs, CA) and there was a 53-55 Lowboy with a dual quad Cadillac motor with original R4 oval emblems on the sides. These are the only ones I have ever seen besides the ones on my GT Hawk R4 clone. Does anyone know of this car? Where did all the originals emblems go?

Considering ONE '64 Commander R3 was built for sale, and No R4's, I am guessing that VERY Few of these were EVER made and for replacement stock, probably NONE.

So, ... Very Rare? You bet, I would probably use a better looking R2 Emblem, and let em guess! ;)

I have a pair in my collection of R-1 thru R-4 fender and grille emblems for 64 and others for the 63s . Not interested in selling any and happy to enjoy looking at them among other Studebaker collectables I have and will get passed down to my son . Ed

Actually the Commander had an R-4 in it not an R-3.

It's as simple as a 3D printer and a little artistic ingenuity.

No way am I enjoying dangling a carrot ! The Commander is owned by a friend and is an R-3 and the R-4 was installed in a Daytona . Since anything other than the 1 and only Commander has emblems and all others are clones I'm good . Also have parts to upgrade my 64 R-2 full package Commander to an R-3 I may use them .

I'll probably start my own thread but since we are talking R emblems, I need a pair of used rectangular "Avanti Supercharged" emblems for the front fenders of R2 1963 Larks. Any condition considered. Thanks

NEW R1 and R2 Reproductions are available, why search everywhere for Used pitted ones and pay almost as much?

The 63 side emblems have been reproduced and SI has them for 40.00 ea . Originals can be found and other than being a little thiner they are ok .
