    I'm sure if they are held on with a screw they are originals. The ones I have are from 56. They use clip instead of screws. I replaced mine with later NOS latches and remotes which required the wire link so I didn't use the originals. If you can't find the correct one it may be possible to drill and tap a later version

    Leyrret, the window regulators are square and handles are held on with a screw/ Door handles go over splines and are held on with a screw. It's a 55K and I have reason to believe they are factory. This one had splines but the vice grips flattened them enough to ruin the splines in the door handle. I have replacment handles but unless I replace the shaft it will continue to ruin door handles.

    I believe they went to the splined in 56 held on with a clip . 53-55 were square and held on with a screw. I have a couple sets of the splined version with a flat link to the latch.
    There is also another later version which uses a wire link to door latch though they are interchangeable if you use the corresponding latch.

    John:
    If you can tell me which holes you are talking about then I will get a better picture of these holes and post it so I can be absolutly sure.

    Send me an e-mail or private message via this Forum, and let me know what you want for the doors. I don't need them myself, but I have storage space, and I could pass them on to somebody who needs them. I am at a wellsite near Edson, but I will be passing through Spruce Grove on my way home next week if we finish up on schedule.
    I have more then enough storage space. I am only posting these here to find out what they fit before posting them on e-bay.

    Gary - thanks for identifying them for me, and thanks everyone else for putting in their 2 cents worth to help figure out what they are.

    If anyone is interested in these doors and would like to make an offer feel free to send me an email.

    I really like this forum and will be coming back to see whats new once or twice a week. You guys have something great going on here. I have been to other forums and cancelled my membership within a week or 2 but I think I will stay with this one. I love the older cars, all makes and models alike, and would love to restore a Studebaker some day, but I am a mechanic and at the end of the day I don't want to work on any cars anymore. Sometimes I don't even want to see a car driving down the road. (especially the way some people drive)

Part # 297939, CONTROL, left door remote. looks like just two bolts to hold it in. The shaft is attached to a plate and a small cam lever that connects to the door latch linkage. Do you think SI might have one? Didn't see it in their catalogue.
    I think I know what you are looking for. I think I have a couple that are splined and a couple that are square shafted. I believe you said you needed the splined? If you don't find any before that, I'll PM you a picture to be sure.

    And yes, we are in Florida for the month of February.

    Sorry Gary
    I was not trying to mislead anyone as to what these doors were. My statement was a general one on the popularity of the earlier C/K doors as oppossed to the smooth doors used on the 57 and up models. And yes you are correct these are definitely "K" doors. A Good snag for anyone who is in need of these.

    Sorry, Bob. The car's in storage. Hope to get one while it's away. If you take your inside door handle off the splined shaft, remove the inner door panel, I believe the shaft mechanism is attached to the door with about four bolts. If your parts are already out, I need the shaft and whatever is attched to it. Thanks!
    If you have no luck with parts, PM me or bump the post 3/3/11 and I'll look at my parts and take a picture or two to see what you need. Or if you have a parts manual, PM the numbers and I'll match them up with my book.
