    Vern,

    I did a search of the index on the home page (current through 2000) and the only overdrive article was on a 4 speed conversion in the July 1985 edition. I did not see anything in the 1931 listings either.

    You might also be interested to know that the buggy that Ruth brought back and came in the back of Asa's M-16 is on its way to Australia.

        The only article I was able to find that's even close to what you asked was in Antique Studebaker Review, 5-6/2006. 'Installing an Overdrive Transmission in a 1920s Studebaker' by Ray Keehner (1929 Dictator)

            Gary: Hope the buggy doesn't get wet.....how did it turn out getting to your place?..... I remember that the article I'm looking for was shown to me by Larry Tholen from the Antique Studebaker magazine.

            Ray: The article you mentioned is the one I'm thinking of. I don't think the 29 and my 31 look quite the same but I'm not sure. Going to pull transmission tomorrow and see what I can make work.

                It went well, the buggy was secured in the back of the grain truck. I met Mitch's driver about 2 hours from my house in the parking lot of the local Farm Co-op and pulled it out of the back of the tractor trailer onto my rollback. I seem to recall that there was a rush order on the cabinets, there were only 11 of them on the truck.

                Is Mitch still delivering this way? I have found a horse drawn wagon in Nebraska and wonder if he could get it to me?

                    Mitch still delivers in your direction. I would have to get the wagon here and then take it to Mitch's dock.

                        Vern,

                        I realize we are off topic, but I will let you know if I can work a deal on the wagon.

                            I found a way to adapt the transmission. Relatively simple. If anyone needs to know how I did it I would be glad to share the information.
