    OK, then I guess all we have to do is check the back of all the different '60's Accessory booklets to see what years they advertised this Globe Dealer replacement option. So far I have found it on '60, '61 & '62

    I'm sorry barnlark, I do not know the answer to your specific question, but can tell you exactly where & how you can find it.

    BTW, I only happened across that 1958Willard" battery used in production than I'd seen, so I made a special note it.

    Rich, I asked what years they were used, not installed at the factory, if that's what you meant.

    If the Globe batteries (found on the back of my 1960 Accessories catalog below) were a Studebaker factory authorized dealer option for replacement batteries AND the Globe brand is drawn in the Chassis Parts electrical diagram pages it wouldn't seem accurate that the answer would be, NEVER.

    They seemingly used them promotionally, sold them and installed them for the 1960 models. I was hoping that Jim, being in South Bend, might know how many other years those batteries were offered and perhaps knew of other drawings.

    To my knowledge...NEVER on cars anyway! We saw that pic Craig has of a 8E45 with two H.D. Globe Betteries, so MAYBE they were used on Diesels.

    It was only a Factory authorized Dealer option for replacement batteries.

    OK, now you be the "judge" as to what is correct & reasonable!!!

    Storage Battery
    Studebaker drawing # 1546064
    Willard drawing # 27792
    Willard part number 1300


    On engine side of battery appears:
    Willard
    Super Master
    with Silver-Metalex

    Yes it is going to be a Willard and I guess I tell them to print it on the engine side.

The positive side is towards the back (drivers window) and it looks as though the brand name can be seen from both sides. I can order the battery with the brand name on either side.

    Here you go from 7 days ago, see the LINK below, found with the search function at the top of the page.

    Of course it would be nice to have the "Willard" name facing the engine, but I am not so sure that the original did that! If it is any other brand, why would it matter?
