      "National Ask a Stupid Question Day" is coming up this September 29, just happening to be my birthday! And you are correct. The only stupid questions are those that do not get asked.

        Is the starter suppose to have a "button" pad or a rubber cover over it?

                      The vehicle is a 1929 model GK (serial no. range 3751550 t0 3753009) . This series was built between January and October 1929 with 1460 units assembled. It was called the "Arlington" and was the economy grade unit offered by Studebaker being on the Six cylinder frame. It was essentially a Dictator model GL built on a extended 146" chassis. Of course the body was by the Superior Body Company of Lima, Ohio (established 1923). The car was restored back in the 70s by Ed Richter of Roscommon, Michigan. I photographed it at the SDC Intl meet in Indianapolis in 1976 (below). Ed is till around and actively restoring Studebakers. I am sure would be able to relate the details re his original purchase from the first owner and his restoration. Send me pm and I will provide his contact info.

                        With it being a GL, is it considered a Dictator or a Commander?
