    No, it's not the correct button for a '52. There WAS a similar emblem used on the '52 Custom and Deluxe trim levels, but those were a simple button in the very center of the wheel. The Deluxe trim level horn RING is what's shown in JDP's car. For '52, this trim level had a more massive, 3-legged horn ring with an odd-shaped little plastic emblem in the middle.[^]

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            That's a good question, Dwain. I think an easy answer would be that the '52s ended up being a stopgap model rather than the all new car that had been hoped for.[V]
