  • Is There Anything Interesting Here? Found Parts

    In another thread, I mentioned that the 64 Commander I got from an auction was filled to the brim with boxes. Along with a set of Champ rims and 64 front end parts, there were boxes of new parts that appear to be very old. Is anything worth keeping?
    Thanks for your help.

      If you are a CAR guy... ALL of it!

      The universal Glass Packed and Steel Packed Truck Mufflers work on anything.

      There is no way to tell WHAT you have in all those Gen. and Starter Parts Boxes, probably some expensive Armatures, and Bearing end plates, Brushes, Brush Springs, Bushings all needed to rebuild Starters and Generators.

      A Parts Catalog for the Brand of those Electrical Parts would be most helpful to I.D. them.
      You need to inventory them by Name and Part Number, that stash could be worth several 100 Dollars and probably not a lot of Stude. Parts, who knows!

      None of it enlarges enough to tell What you have, sorry.

        Rich, You are correct on all things! Luckily, just about everything boxed is labeled with part numbers. Maybe I can find a United Motors Service interchange catalog.

          The fuel and oil lines would be suspect. They are probably brittle from age. The rest is possibly worth a bit to someone.

            If nothing else good shop decorations.
            American iron, real old school
            With two tone paint, it sure is cool

            Its got 8 cylinders and uses them all
            With an overdrive that just won't stall

            With a 4 barrel carb and dual exhausts
            With 4.23 gears it can really get lost

            Its got safety belts and I ain't scared
            The brakes are good and the tires are fair.

            Tried to sell her, but got no taker
            I"ll just keep driving my Studebaker

              Those horns are wicked awesome. You should certainly use those on one of the cars you're building. They would sound incredible.

                Toss the oil and brake hoses, Justin. Everything else has definite value.

                Properly cataloged and marketed, you'll be able to get your money back for the whole car several times over. You might contact Randy Rundle at Fifth Avenue Antique Auto Parts and see what he'd offer for the whole lot of electrical components, or tell you where to market them as a lot to a rebuilder. He advertises regularly in Turning Wheels, in the classifieds.

                Nice stash in the right place but don't move the brake, fuel, and oil hoses any farther than to the nearest dumpster. BP

                  What can be found in trunks can be amazing. I bought a very rusty 51 Caddie convertible about 20 years ago and found a load of stuff in the trunk including some of those two scooped air cleaner housings and a decent set of stainless steel wire wheel hubcaps which I sold for an amazing amount, IIRC over $300.

                    I was once roaming through a large wrecking yard here in Virginia. I opened the trunk of a '55 Studebaker sedan and found a '57-58 Golden Hawk supercharger setup. Fortunately, the owner was absent and an assistant priced those parts and some other Studebaker parts to me for $25. It never hurts to look!

                      Went through and old box of radiator hoses that were like bricks to find a SAMPLE of a 57 G hawk radiator hose. That hose will help set the restoration straight. . If you want to toss it, toss it my way... I'd venture to buy any of the old stuff as I have a buddy that has nothing but 1920's to 1932 Studes and he has those old books.

                        I have been pleased with what I have bought from this vendor: http://www.then-now-auto.com/

                        Maybe something could be worked out with them, and they would do the identifying.

                          Listed as shown on eBay should garner a $100 + to an electrical guy...

                            Your Hoses

                            Don't throw away the Imperial Hose holder and the hoses. Clean the hose holder (very gently - perhaps plain water - paint may come off, instead of just coming clean), and hoses. You know what is printed on most cleaning products - try to only use any cleaning product on a small inconspicuous area first.
                            Keep it, as it makes a very nice wall hanger display for your garage!

                              Dwight Fitzsimons Now didn't you feel just a little bit guilty? Sounds like a great find.
