    Never seen this before- a Studebaker "Celebration" kit. Throw a party when you buy a new Hawk:

    I saw this. Was this really a Studebaker item? I have never heard of one of these before. I wish he had posted a better picture of the letter.

                I remember things like this in the stationary stores back in the late '60s. This looks like just one of those generic quirky things one could pickup anywhere. Unless of course, if that congratulatory letter in the lower left hand corner has a letter head, symbol, etc, there's nothing apparent to indicate a Studebaker origin. Then again, if they have a purchase contract that lists a 'celebratory kit' there's documentation on it. Could have been a dealer gimmick.

                    When I list on e-bay I write my description in Word, use the spell check and then cut and paste into the description. It would be helpful if others would do the same.

                        I don't see anything that ties this item to Studebaker. It MAY have been a dealer item (purchased at the local five and dime store). I also noticed that the seller only has one opening bid on the 16 items that he/she has for sale.

                            Grammar, spelling, keyboard skills all lacking here. It SEEMS to me that I've had a less than tasteful experience with this seller in the not-to-distant past. I can't say for sure.

                            That one item they have listed: Studebaker ball bearing

                            The part number they show - 1548351 - isn't to be found in the index of any of my parts books. However... it IS in the parts pricing book and is listed as an "Element Kit". Anybody got an idea as to what sort of thing this really is??? It was pricey in it's day at a suggested price list of $44 bucks! Seem's quite alot for a couple of bearings as this seller has characterized it![}]

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