  • NOS windshield washer

    Me and my grandad went to the Moultrie, GA Swap Meet today. It's a HUGE event with almost any car you can think of for sale, and more parts than you can see in a day. There were only 4 Studebakers in the corral. We only found a few Studebaker parts for sale, and most were way overpriced. There was a NOS set of '55 C/K taillights for $75.00.
    We were about to call it a day, when I spotted a '64-'65 Lark-type grille laying against a trailer. Turns out, there were a couple of boxes of NOS parts for a '65 there. [:0] The vendor gave us a price and we bought everything Studebaker he had.
    Going through the stuff, I found this NOS windshield washer setup. I've never seen a glass bottle type, but only the bag type. Any ideas as to what it fits? We are thinking maybe it's for a Hawk. It still has the NOS washer fluid still in it.

    How does the setup work? What's missing? The '62 Cruiser has a big black jug connected to its foot pump. Is the bottle just a refil that mounts under the hood?

    A couple pics...

    Matt,
    IMMIC, this is for the later models, 62'& up but it's mising the bag asd the cap, the hoses and the nozzles. There should also be triangluar metal bracket that the bottle is held in. It's suppose to be screwed to the inner fender or where ever the instructions say.
    Maybe someone out there has a copy of the "assessory sheet" that shows all of the parts and where they mount. There were several different styles, including the one with the big black round jug that is seen mostly seen on later larks mounted next to the battery.

        This would have been mounted on the inner fender and was a bottle of additive to be mixed with the water in the washer reservoir, in the days before premixed washer fluid was marketed.

        The early 50's models did use a large glass jar reservoir rather than the collapsible bag or plastic jug in your 62.

                Ha! Instructions for the Lark kit say to mount the bracket for the concentrate bottle on the right fender apron near the right horn assembly. Instructions for the Hawk say to mount it on 'the' fender apron or 'a convenient location under the hood'.

                        Matthew,

                        I hope you bought those '55 C-K taillights! I am not kidding.

                        If for whatever reason those remain unsold and the seller is a reader of these forums, I would certainly appreciate an opportunity to buy them.

                        The bottle is an accessory that had a matching steel bracket that screwed to the inner fender. It's not part of the winshield washer system per se but it holds concentrated solvent so that if you're traveling you can pour a little solvent into the reservoir, then top up with water, et voila, you have winshield washer fluid. I guess back in the day they didn't have premixed WW fluid available at every gas station? I actually have one with the bracket; I'm told that it was also used on GM cars with the only difference being the label on the bottle, so if you want to put it on a car you might want to check and see if the bracket has been reproduced yet.

                        Along the same lines, has the label been repro'd? My label is long gone although the bottle and bracket are in excellent shape.

                            No Nate, we didn't buy those taillights. The guy wasn't a Stude guy and wasn't the most pleasant person to be around either.
                            Yes, the bracket is with the bottle, as well as the screws.
