    Anyone know if someone is reproducing the 34/35 Dictator gas tank--Mine is beyond repair. Or do I need to have one custom made? Also Posted on Antique Stude site.

    Thanks, John

      Hi John,
      34 is a very common year for Studebaker so shop around or call people in the ASC and SDC roster with similar models to move your problem along.

      Most gas tanks require a bit of rust repair even on the good cars due to age and condensation.

        Thanks Jeff and Greg,

        Jeff will follow up with Bob.

        Greg, not sure these cars are common, maybe I don't know the right
        people, but parts are sure hard to find!!!!!!
