  • 1951 nose spinners available new?

    I need the plastic spinner for the grille on my '51. Did I see somewhere that someone was reproducing them? Otherwise all I can find is in a set with the nose ring (that sounds wrong), and I don't need anything but the spinner.

    I made a small run of them, have 2 left. They're UV Resistant urethane and painted silver on the inside, it's a very close match to the NOS one I have. The mold wore out so it's unlikely I'll be making anymore, at least for a while. $95, postage included. Feel free to send me a message through the forum if you're interested.

      I sure hope he means the plastic nose bullet and not one of those tacky spinners you could by from Warshawsky sixty years ago.

        I'd love to have one of those "tacky spinners" just for fun.....
        but first I'd have to get a car to mount it on.....

        wonder if it would work on a 2R5 hood ornament?

          You can get a CAD file to 3D print a 1950 bullet nose in plastic. See this on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1143436
          I thinks its about an inch or so too large in diameter to print on my Creality Ender 3 printer, would have to be done by a commercial 3D print company. Too bad it's not the 1951 bullet.

              One of the Crosley vendors sells a nice repro of the "Lindberg Prop". I bought one, mounted it to an extra bullet, and installed it on my '51. Two minutes later I took it back off and decided it would be more appropriate on the Stephen Allen's golf cart.

                  Repro propeller - Exact as the original except for one improvement, a hex to the end of the mounting bolt so you can hold the stud while mounting and removing. The stud is stainless steel so it will not rust. The propeller measures 7" across with a 1/4" mounting stud. Show chrome. - 203-265-4311

                    Bamajak, the originals that I have are wildly out of balance. Are the repros balanced better?

                      Roy I don't know I just found the add. I am thinking about punting them on on my Studemino.

                          I agree with Gary, or if you really want one, at least make it a clip on affair, rather than drill a hole in a good bullet.

                            Jack's Studemino is actually a converted El Camino with reproduction parts bolted on. No Studebakers were harmed in the making of this car...at least I hope not...
