View Full Version : why do I keep doin' this

The excitement just keeps coming. Today while working on my 53
I found the original key number plate. the one that says record
and discard. How cool is this? I also discovered that the original
windshield washer pump still works on the sedan. I have decided not
to use any accessories that did not come on my coupe. I have a
windshield washer pump and nozzle "correct", a 53 radio, that works,
two other radios for spare parts, a roll up antenna, that has a good reel, mast bent(not sure year), front bumper wings, need plating for show, complete lighter, and a working clock. sell all together or

I hope you've disposed of that tag! If not you could be in real trouble! This is handled by the mattress tag police- and you wouldn't want to fool with THEM, right?!?

You are right, Bob. I showed it to my neighbor and he
seemed to really believe that.

Tex - be careful with that tag. If it falls into the hands of a thief, they could go to ANY authorized Studebaker dealer and get a duplicate key, then come take your ride...
