  • Help Needed: What Do These Parts Fit?

    Got some pieces in a group of Studebaker parts, but not sure what they fit (if even Studebaker). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Mirror #1 (maybe '47 thru '52 era?):

      The Ash Tray goes on the "B" Pillar on most '47 to '52 4 Door Sedans I think, unless the style changed a bit over those years.

      I would have to see the backside of the # 2 and #3 Rear View Mirrors to tell for sure, #2 could be a Standard '56-'60 and #3 could be a Day/Night.

        Thanks Rich, I'll check the '47 thru '52 parts manual on the ash tray.

        On the mirrors, the pics show the front and back of each of the two mirrors.

          Look at the lenses carefully. Most of the time there is some sort of lettering toward the bottom which helps ID it.

            Thanks for all the input so far. Based on Rich's input on the ash tray, I did find that although this one is very very similar in design to the '47 thru '52 center post ashtray, it's actually a AC-2428 Ash Receiver Kit for the '53 4-door sedans. Most likely it would fit the '54 and '55 sedans also.

            The only lens that has a number is the bullet shaped one, and it has a "58" on it. Looking in the parts catalog at the '58 and '59 lenses, I didn't see anything like that. It's interesting since it has the 'plastic' chrome on the edges, on the backside of the clear plastic lens.

            The weird flat lenses with the 'L' shaped bracket at the bottom have no numbers. Perhaps they went inside the tail light housing or primary tail light lens somehow??

              Ok, I am all confused on that #2 Mirror, because the non-rectangular shape in Pic 2 is the Shape of the 1956-'58 and 1960 Rear View Mirror, but it must be an illusion due to Camera Angle if it is actually Rectangular.

              So that being the Case it could be a '61 to '66 Rectangular Mirror. The other issue is all Stude. Mirrors I know of, do not have a Straight Rod on the swivel on back as that appears, they have a Bend.

                Rich, the pic is kind of wonky, the mirror is actually rectangular. But it's not a '62 thru '66 mirror, I have a number of those. Have not looked at the part numbers, but assume '61 is the same as '62. It's a nice mirror, just has my fingerprints all over the chrome .
