      Not really. The Studebaker belts said Kar Belts on the box, and with the correct S/P sticker, they are 100 % correct.

                    If you have good used ones like that, Bob, I'd be happy with a rear set of those. (Not kidding) Pulling over two c-notes may be what they are worth now for a nos safety part, but I'm not sure I'd trust the belts that old, so I would be spending that just for buckles. Puts it in a different perspective that way for me. They are puurdy, though.

                      Just an observation... but would it be prudent to mount those on the doors like that? As Studebaker doors are prone to pop open in a wreck, one would expect the occupants would be thrown out of the car in spite of being belted in. The door jamb would be a much better anchor, wouldn't it?

                        Sparton. The belts were also supplied to the aftermarket. Look at Chucks e-bay photo and compare to the Bondo photo. Confusing a bit? Sparton was an after market and before market supplier of auto products. They were manufacturers of automobile horns to Stude, Gm{the long Cadillac trumpet horn}, Chrysler, American Motors,jeep. jimmijim

                          I did not say they were not 100% correct. I stated that they looked like aftermarket. An olde time gas station I worked at as a kid had a couple sets like Chuck's e-bay ones without the s-p stickers. Go figure. I did. They were supplied to the aftermarket also. Sparton Karbelts were not exclusive to Studebaker. jimmijim

                              Sparton was the vendor/supplier for both, just different box art depending on the year up to 1960, I'm pretty sure. The key is the spelling "Karbelts." The airline buckles and clips were made N.J.
                              Does anyone use the door any more? Most drill in the floor and use the proper washers, I would think. I'm trying to figure out where they would have drilled in the rear on a convertible Lark. It's a very short belt if installed back there.
