  • 1924 studabacker found in a barn

    I found a 1924 stud. rag-top in a barn this week in very good condition and all the mechanics are there. The car was parked since 1943. Any info. on the car will help the only thing missing is the to doors.(purchased for original owner)

    Does anyone know the production numbers for this car?

    If someone wants to see it i have VERY GOOD pictures of it. Anyone wanting to call me tonight at my office is free to do so, it is toll free.

    Will need pictures of it, and the best way to identify it is by looking at its vin tag. Sounds like a good find.

        There should be a body tag on the firewall (on the dngine side). Send us the numbers. Look behind the left front wheel on the frame, a serial number plate may be mounted there with a serial number. Send us that number for more information on model and number produced.

              Are those wheels for train rails?[?]

                It's a Light Six roadster. A 1924 should have a cast iron head. The earlier models had an aluminum head, which are a bear to remove after 80+ years due to corrosion. The solid steel wheels were an option, wood spoke were standard. Studebaker made a fair number of the Light Sixes so parts can be found. The very first Light Six was kept by Studebaker and is in the Studebaker National Museum.

                Here is a photo of the '24 Light Six touring car I owned several years ago.

                  Wednesday is the big day, the car came from the original family and I know it has steel heads

                    Wow - I'm always surprised when cars like this survived WWII scrap drives.

                    This will be a neat and rare car when done.

                      Based on what everyone has seen, for the year of the car is it in good condition. Is the average in better condition.

                          I think I would call that a roadster. I would love to have one like that to restore. Good find.

                            I would say YES, the [u]AVERAGE</u> '24 IS in better condition than that.
                            The only reason I say that is that it is not really fair to compare a rare unmolested original to a well maintained, repaired or restored car, which is what most would be, after 86 Years! [:0]
