  • Why would they do this?

    Why would Studebaker write the word RADIO on the radio delete plate?

    Salesmanship! If it said nothing, you would be less apt to replace it with something.

        What year and model does that fit ? I'm taking the radio out of the 56 Wagon. It don't work and I don't listen to nothing but the wife and motor. Mostly motor.

            A working radio can be a boon - you can turn it off if & when you like.

                That blanking plate fits 53-54

                Miscreant adrift in
                the BerStuda Triangle

                1953 Commander coupe

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

                    Ive wondered that myself.
                    I think they should have put "You cheap ass,you could of had a radio", on it.

                        Bigsy,

                        I notice that it has a tristar on it. Would it have been used during both years or was it modified due to the flap with Mercedes in '53?
