    My Lark also has aftermarket venetian blinds.
    In Chile they were a popular accesory for many cars having "panoramic" rear windshield i.e curved , big size glass.
    This type of venetians were made locally in a very ingenious way , but today they looks great in my Stude.

    For the record was this ever a big hit for an accessory for the old Studebakers...

    Wow! $162.50 for a generic, aftermarket set. As mentioned, the Studebaker AC blinds were made for each model. I had a NOS set (showing shelf wear) that I had kept for my '47 Commander 5-passeneger. Having sold the car I dragged the set to York several years ago then forgot to dispaly it until Saturday afternoon. As I opened it a woman walked up and asked the man with here if that was what she thought it was. He said "yes" and she laid out five big ones without saying another word.

    If you can't find the venetian type blinds, I have an old pair of living room drapes you could have. Rig up the track in back and then through a system of pullies, run the rope up to the steering wheel. Then whenever you turned the steering wheel to parallel park, it would wind up the rope and open the blinds. Going down the road with the steering wheel pointed forward and they'd be closed. And if you happened to be stopped at a stop light and behind you was a good looking chick in a Stude or a good looking Stude with a chick in it, you could crank the wheel back and forth and wink at her. Of course power steering would help a lot because with the slow Stude steering, she might just think you were falling asleep.

    Gee, maybe I won't come down much on my 1966 Cruiser. It's the only one I've ever seen with the correct aftermarket blinds!

    The venetion shades offered by Studebaker were made to fit specific body styles. I saw one four piece set for a 47-52 Starlight at York many years ago. It was pretty bent but intact and the guy wanted $450.[:0] You will take your chances on a generic kit.

    As I did not think the thing would look right in a 50 Commander, I think the pic of the Land Crusier changed my mind...I really need to try and find a tail light bezel and head light knob first..
