Be VERY careful handling those torsion springs. They have a LOT of tension on them. Bob Peterson got sent to the emergency room trying to remove one.

Several years ago I ordered a hood prop rod for my 60 Lark from one of the Studebaker vendors (I forget which one) and was sent the "mystery" part in the photo below. When I saw your request I looked at the parts book and it appears that the mystery part might be a tailgate torsion rod. I noticed that there is a left and a right and I have no idea which one this might be. If it's anything you are interested in I think I paid around $8 for it and you can have it for that price plus whatever it costs to have it shipped. If interested drop me an email dpson1954@comcast.net .
