    Welcome Lau![^] Scary handle you got there![}] There are many Studebaker Parts specialists such as myself who are glad to help keep a Studebaker on the road. We are listed on the site:studebakervendors.com

    My suggestion on the gas tank would be: always check things out thoroughly on old car parts before you condemn something. You would be surprised at how tough they are, they are not like a new Honda, where everything is plastic and you just throw it away and get a new one. What you do is remove it, look inside to see if there is serious rust and or holes, if not a Radiator shop has the equipment to "boil it out" to clean it and seal it with a new type of sealer to make it better than new. New ones are not available.

    new member!

    i'm new to the forum/site, so bare with this 50's loving female who loves her 1955 Studebaker Commander.
    i enherited it from my grandfather and plan to fix it up. i do not know much of anything about cars, so i will most likely be asking stupid questions to all of you.

    anyways, any help from anyone would be great!


    a friend of mine suggested that i go ahead and purchase a gas tank to replace the one that's in it currently.
    my uncle, as far as i know, has been changing the oil regularly but the car hasn't been run/started in i don't know how long (could be over 10 years).

    any suggestions on what i should/shouldn't do first?
    what to look at/for?

    any links/places you can get specialty items from? or are some of the parts just general so i can get them anywhere (remember, i'm new to all of this and trying to learn as i go along!)?

    thanks!
    Lau
