  • New Studebaker owner here...

    Just wanted to introduce myself and say hi. My name is Jen and I just purchased my first classic car which happens to be a 1955 Studebaker President State coupe.
    I am looking for sources {venders} for parts for my car. Weather strip, window channel, knobs, heater core, etc. are there parts catalogs available? Any help would be grately appreated.

    Welcome to our Family Jen. Join the Studebaker drivers Club and you will get the Turning Wheels magazine which is full of information. There are many parts vendors in our group, but the best catalog is Studebaker International in Indiana. www.studebaker-intl.com.
    I am impressed with your car! But then I have always had a soft spot for 55's.

    If you are on Facebook, check out "Studebaker Addicts" page Lots of good folks there.

    Enjoy your car. NT

      What Neil said; welcome. Join The Studebaker Drivers Club and you'll find that the monthly editions of Turning Wheels will supply you with more parts than you can imagine. BP

            There are parts dealers all over the country. I use Studebakers West here in Northern Ca., and Studebakerparts.com in Phoenix along with others. Beautiful car. My first Studebaker was a 55 Commander, but not as nice as yours!

              Welcome Jen!

              That appears to be a Manual Trans. Car, does it have Overdrive?

              UPDATE: Opps, I enlarged your Photobucket Photo of the Column and saw the Auto. Trans. gear selector peeking out from behind.

                    DO NOT listen to the smart-alecs who tell you to park with the front of your car in a hedge! That '55 is a beautiful car, don't let anyone tell you otherwise! Sorry, it's a running joke around here about '55s. I learned something today. I always thought a President-State was a four-door. Shows what I know.

                            Thanks everyone, I have joined the Studebaker drivers club. Not sure if they have a local chapter located in northern Idaho or possibly Spokane WA.

                              Two chapters in Idaho, seven in Washington- http://www.studebakerdriversclub.com/chapters.asp Clearly not all are in your area, but some aren't too far.
