    You can still purchase NOS hinges from Studebaker Int.

    Thanks for all your help. I believe I’ve located a good trunk lid. I now need to locate a good left trunk lid hinge and a glove box door.

    I'm really surprised French Lake doesn't have one.
    I haven't been to Windy Hill Auto Parts near New London, MN in many years, but they also had some very nice 1950 Champions.
    BTW Commanders should have the same lid.

    I have an extra short deck lid, but it also has a little rust on the bottom edge.

    I know French Lake in Minnesota has the parts, but shipping might be a killer. 320-286-2560

    Sorry, I forgot to put in the full discription. My car is a 1950 2 Door Sedan

    That is not entirely accurate.

    The difference in trunk lid lengths is between the coupes and the others:
    -four door sedan, two door sedan, convertible take the short lid
    -three passenger coupe and five passenger coupe take the long lid

    The trunk lids interchange from 47-52 with the differences being in the holes for the trunk handle.

    The hinges are different the same way the trunk lids are:
    -four door sedan, two door sedan, convertible take one set of hinges
    -three passenger coupe and five passenger coupe take the other set of hinges

    That rust is pretty typical and a body shop can cut out that rust and weld in new metal. Finding a pristine trunk lid is tough and probably pretty pricey.
    I have an extra deck lid, with some rust like yours, for a 4 dr sedan/convertible, which is shorter then the 2 dr sedan deck lids. 2 dr and 4 dr hinges are different too.

    1950 Studebaker Champion Sedan Trunk Lid

    I have a lot to learn about Studebakers. I rescued one from the crusher a few weeks ago. Does anyone know where I can get a patch panel or a good truck Lid. For some reason mine has rusted completely through about 4 inches below the handle. I also need the left hinge. Thanks for your help.
