Well, here's the pics I promised. I hope you folks don't mind my enthusiasm. It's just, I'm so... STOKED!:D Take a look at that back seat, will ya?

The front seat doesn't look so good:

The dash is excellent:

And check this out! The third seat! It even has the fold down step.

The floors are all rusty, with no rust-through at all.:D The exterior is a different story. The back quarter panels on both sides are rusted away.[V] I'm afraid to think what the frame looks like.[}:)] Still what a fab interior!:D Worse comes to worse; I've fallen into a really nice interior! Now all I have to do is find someone who can duplicate the front seat upholstry.[8)] Yeah, right.;) Nevertheless, I've been grinning so much every time I look at the twin, my cheeks are beginning to get sore. And to think, I almost didn't go to get it.

Lotsa Larks!

Ya know Ron - there's ALOT of seat covers of that pattern laying around at SASCO. [:0] No, I'm serious. I've spent a couple hours digging thru them while trying to put matching sets together.
When I was there in '02, I managed to round up a nice set of blue cloth/vinyl upholstery just to have if I wanted to do some custom seat covers for a blue Stude. I didn't care what year they might end up in, only that they would be made from genuine Studebaker pattern covers.;) And I'd wager that bench seat upholstery might be more plentiful since everyone wants to "upgrade" to buckets and therefor have skiened all the bucket stuff away already.
Either way - can't hurt to ask! I'd bet that Dennis will have these "piles" open for picking thru as he has in the past. You do the digging but the price is right frugal!

SASCO, that's in South Bend Indiana. Hmmm... only, what, a six, maybe seven hundred mile detour? Hmmm...

Hey! Wait-a-minute! SAME PATTERN????? Hey! The other twin needs black ones! Of course, it needs a little more than just the covers. The mice have been at it. But hey, the covers are the hard part, right?

Lotsa Larks!
