    And yes, I know Studebaker didn't make '53 & '54 convertibles. Never too late to correct an old mistake...[)]

            How about fiberglass grills for M series trucks?

                I cannot believe no one has done the S T U D E | B A K E R pot metal plates for the front of the hood on 49-53 trucks. Is there an opportunity some one is missing?

                    I've done the unbreakable motor mount on my 64 Daytona. The mechanic I bought it from suggested it. I believe we either took the metal from a stock mount or found some very large washers with the proper hole size. then I shopped around and bought a custom cut circular piece of rubber - believe it was 60 durometer. We used the metal for a template, drilled a hole through the rubber (it's thickness matched pretty well the Studebaker rubber thickness). Then we got a good strong grade long bolt and fed it through and bolted it in place like the real mount. After 50,000 miles I had no failure and no noticeable increase in vibration through the bolt. I remember it was tricky to get the bolt in and tightened down because it was a bit longer than the original overall height of the stock bolts, but it went in. I warned the new owner it might be tricky to take back out if he wanted to rebuilt the engine. If we had had a good place to get the bolt trimmed down, it would have been perfect.

                    I only did it on one side - the side that moves up when the engine is revved.

                            What about the small dog dish truck hubcaps that would fit on the newer discbrake style wheels?

                                '63 - '66 Lark vent window seals. How is no one making these?
                                '63 - '66 Lark rear window cat whiskers.
                                '62 - '63 Lark trunk lock housings that don't break when you look at them.
                                Flight-O-Matic rear pumps for '59 - up.
                                '63 Lark trunk lid lip pot metal trim.
                                Honest-to-goodness padded vinyl dash covers, '62 - up Larks. They make 'em for Avantis!
                                170-degree thermostats!
                                Correct horn buttons for '59 - '63 Larks.

                                Is that enough for now?
