OK first this is just a project so I see a good canvas to start a great piece of art.

The back seat is a Stude seat but didn't the Land Cruiser have an arm rest? It was also recoverd at some time. Anybody got some parts, engine and interior stuff is what I need.

Good luck with the project! The long snout on that '50 looks even longer with painted head light rims. Just think of what the perspective that youngster has of that car. Kinda reminds me of the view of my neighbor's goat when I was a kid. The goat looked so tall... like a Giraffe would look to me today.:):):)

He is just like me. He loves cars, and old tractors. In the first picture you can see my deuce and a half he is really taken with that.

If you were to park the '50 land cruiser next to my '51 land cruiser...you would see that the '50 is about a foot longer in the front end. Is yours an automatic or manual transmission?

There are times I wish I still had my first Studebaker, a '50 Land Cruiser, same color as that was. That was the look the '50s and '51s were supposed to have, not the bobbed noses of the Champions.

Yes, the Land Cruiser had a rear armrest, and there was only one fabric offered in it that year; not the fabric in your photos.
I parted out a '50 Land Cruiser a number of years ago and couldn't get rid of the seats. They're gone now. I sold five yards of the original material to Rene Harger. I'm pretty sure Phantom has had the material rewoven.
I do still have the robe rail, ashtray and stainless skirts for the front seat.
Let me know if you need them.

It is a manual with overdrive. I also got an extra trans with it.

Yeah the front seat is all there and is the original material. I think that the back seat is out of something like a Champion, all the holes and the amount of bolts in it are identical. Unless somebody when the recovered it redid the springs (as they are new) and eliminated the armrest at that time.

Its a good day when a car so long forlorn, goes to a new home as a project with plans for being great once again. It looks mostly complete, just very weathered.

Good luck, Thomas

If you only could see all the projects laying around beside the Stude and all the finished cars in the shop beside it. There are 2 37 Dodges there that one is going to be a b/gs gasser and a Model A "rat rod" and so on. I am redoing a 56 Merc the was customized in the 60's that is a real joy to work on in my garage at home. So yes I am a glutton for punishment. I love project type vehicles.

At least you see the diamond in the rough.

;) As for the engine "missing" that's a tough one to diagnose ;), surely someone here can help. [:o)]

And that Goodyear garage art sign is probably what you were after the whole time. [^]

That Goodyear sign the guy dug up out of the back of his shop for me, it came from his tire store many years ago. This guy had a collection that would amaze anybody into antique collecting. He has his parents' General store set up in his garage. He has a model T that is all original except for paint and runs like a top. The brass works are like new. He has a Model A that he drives around at Deadwood SD and all through the hills in SD.

I was wondering if you still have the robe rail? I have a 1931 that is in need of one and would love to get one back into the car.

I love the first picture. Takes me back to when I was that age and smitten by a Studebaker. Of course they were new cars back then.

I have a pair of NOS robe rails for a 40-something Stude with split seat backs. Free to someone who'll pay shipping. They're sort of a gray leatherette covered.
