Yeah Chris, you want to buy a round trip ticket to South Africa to buy one, or maybe pay the freight from there? :D

my '40 Champion had a "tractor supply" 6 volt battery. seemed to be the right size, according to pics i had. thanks again, Mr. Q! :)

tried to put a red "willard" decal on it after removing all signs of tractor supply. but i couldn't get the decal to work, wouldn't come off the paper... :(

Wow! for $235.00 you better save the case in 3 years when it dies, and have a smaller Batt. Mfg. Co. put new plates in it, maybe couple of times, to equal the cost of ordinary $85.00 Batteries with $3.00 Studebaker Batteries Decals. :)

Doesn’t a $235. OE "Script" battery (now that they are available again) in a $35,000. Studebaker make more sense than an $85. Wal-Mart battery with a $3. Sticker slapped on it in a $500. Stude? ;)

I had to use the WILLARD sticker as a pattern & then I painted it on my battery. The sticker wouldn't stay stuck.
13128.. Of course being a sign painter helps. I also restore license plates.

Very nice work! What is the going rate these days to restore a license plate?

$20 per hour plus materials (That background may have to be a custom mix, which adds to the price.) There is body work, welding, sandblasting, filling, and a lot of painstaking sanding needed. Plus the talent to hand letter the numbers as they were origionally silkscreened.
