Those are cheap enough, if you can stand that STYLE. :( :eek:

I think these are similar to what Brewster had in mind and also similar to the ones on SI for $75.00.

Probably Not, the Correct ones are AC-2840.

Now, now. Be nice. Some people like that style. I have seen them on a few cars at shows. On the right car they actually look pretty cool.

I found these on ebay new for $75/pair, they are repros for '50s, '60s Mopars and look very close to the SI repros but are made better. I haven't seen them for awhile but they're out there somewhere....26292

I like those. And plenty close enough as far as being "correct" for Studes. I may try to find a set for the 63GT.
Thanks

Those look like the Original Chrysler/Desoto Design, they have a bit different spacing on the vertical bars and are a little thicker, but a good Substitute.

I think they are being Reproduced, which would explain the low Price, the pair I have are 100% Stainless Steel.

I like the rolled tip Gibson exhaust tip. I like the look of the round tips.

I am going with a round tip for my Hawk. I'd been meaning to put my used AC-2840's on eBay so I have done so if you are interested...

Kanter sells the MOPAR ones which are close to the Studebaker but only $49. each a savings of almost $50. enough reason for me to use them on my Clipper

Thanks! I drive it 2-3 times a week, have to allow extra time for those trips because I almost always have to stop and answer a bunch of questions. People know Fords & Chevies but Studebaker? What's that???

The people who are actually the Manufacturer of the AC2840 Studebaker

Exhaust Deflectors ( Repro ) are "Studebaker Rubber Gaskets " Valerie

Hansen , telephone 615 - 356 - 7510 who are at 217 Andover Way ,

Nashville TN 37221 . Maybe , seeing as how these deflectors come from

them , they can give you a " best price " . I have had pairs of all three ,

the original Studebaker ones are still the best but the (NORS) replacements

still look to me to be quite suitable for the job , except that they are not

exact copies . The Chrysler repros too look good but are of course not all

that close to the original Studebaker design . Any of them look better than

having nothing . That Silver GT Hawk in an earlier Post to this 'thread' looks

great to me , a real "tuff" look , and not to be outdone at all , the black '57

Packard Clipper Sedan looks just as good , more photos of both , Please !

By the way , I found an Advertisement from the Manufacturers on Page 58

of the June 2013 "Turning Wheels" Studebaker Drivers Club Magazine . We

should try to support ALL of our aftermarket Manufacturers , I think !!!

I have those on my '37 Olds. They look fine, some I have seen have a Chevy bow tie stamped on the top. They are not quite what I would like for a Studebaker. I believe that there was a similar style for Studebaker but more finely detailed.

I originally had a new set of the Studebaker repro tips but could not make them fit my 2 1/4" exhaust, which is why I had to go with the Mopar ones. My car is a driver, not a show car so I'm not too concerned about the differences, they're close enough for my needs. Anyway, I had a young lady in a Civic run into the back of my Hawk last year, scratched the bumper and took out the exhaust tips so I'm now using regular round tips for now. Her Civic was totaled......

I believe, Valerie's dad, Bill Fennessey, was the first person to reproduce these. I bought a set from Bill many moons ago and was pleased but as stated above, they are not quite as nice as the original ones.

We owe a lot to vendors like Bill whom have reproduced so many parts for us over the years. We are also fortunate that most our vendors work together and share what they reproduce.

I know they don't match mine, but I like the look of those. they sort of remind me of the 47-49 taillights.
Maybe if I ever get a split manifold with duals, I'll drop a couple of that style tips on the end.

That may explain why, to this day, they are half again, what comparable Mopars sell for at Kanter. A few decades ago, Bill had cornered the market on repro rubber, hawk fin strips, 56 emblems, etc.. When he had the monopoly, they were an arm & a leg. Only after they became available elsewhere did the price even begin to come down.
