I am using '57-'58 gauges, and '56 switches and levers. I have just finished rebuilding the switches, and am now going through my parts, have been trying to locate a cigar lighter from a '56 J. I am hoping that someone might have a close up photo of an original '56 Golden Hawk cigar lighter that they would post for me to help with my search. I have looked in the two '56 Hawk TW issues done by Fred Fox, but was unable to get a good view of the lighter in the interior shot. From what I can see in the interior shot though...it looks to be different from the later Hawks. Thanks a million for any help! Tim

Thanks Bill! Now thats a close up!:D It is the same AC 2750 as the other Hawks! [:I] The reason for the confusion on my part, is the photo in the April '85 TW. On page 8 it shows an interior shot of the '56 J dash with what appears to be a different lighter! [:0] The center stainless insert on the face appears to be a much larger diameter than the one on an AC 2750. I wonder if this might have been a prototype dash photo? Thanks again for your help Bill, it was much appreciated. Tim

I just bought that one in Lancaster to replace my burned out one.

If you have the knob, can't you just buy a replacement element at your local FLAPS?

That appears to have been manufactured by the C**** A**** Studebaker Co.![:0][:o)]

Nope, just tried to. The black knob came off with a serated metal piece. The element is part of the insulator/metal grounding collar.

What is so funny is that they have not changed the design in 53 years. I have been using an extra one from Ellen's MKZ
