    Welcome to the SDC Forum. Since your car is a pre-World War II model, you may also want to check out the Antique Studebaker Club at:

        There was almost no wood in the '32 bodies, at least no structural wood. Bodies on the 1932 and '33 cars were the same but you should also know that there were four series President, Commander, Dictator and the model 55 Six. The latter two were identical as to size etc. but will not likely interchange with the bigger two. All I can say on that 1/4 window reveal is good luck. Not many coupes around.

          Richard can correct or confirm, but I believe that quarter window track would also be the same on a Rockne Model "75".
