  • 1953 Stude pickup

    I am the new owner of a '53 pickup, my question, is there supposed to be a panel under the hood to protect the instrument panel wiring..etc? as well as the glove box area? My truck has no such panel and the heat generated by the engine comes right into the passenger compartment. The heater case is right in the center of the cowl area, on either side of this case it is open to the back side of the dash panel. I live in the desert southwest and this added heat is quite objectionable.. Thanks for any help... Karl.

    Save your money and buy a Hotrod!

    The factory did not use such a panel, but many rodders make one. I did see one ready made custom panel kit on ebay a few months back.

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