  • Wagon rear quarter glass gaskets

    I couldn't find the recent thread where we talked about the gaskets for the fixed rear glass gaskets on Stude station wagons.

    Anyway, the news is tha Ed graciously sent me a sample of a gasket he'd had made and had never had a chance to check as to it's fit. I'm happy to report that the stuff was dead nuts on as far as matching the original stuff that's on my '58 wagons rear glasses (which happen to be out right now). In comparing the old to the new, it's obvious that Stude used a rope caulk (Dum-Dum) IN the glass channel as well as in the channel that fits on the frame edge.
    I think it's safe to assume that this rubber would be good back thru the '54 Conestogas. Probably Lark wagons with no reveal mouldings as well, but I'm too lazy to go check the part numbers to see if they're the same.
    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

    This is wonderful news!

    Ed, any idea when you can have this available?

      Just to be sure- we are talking rear quarter, and NOT tailgate, right?
      I ask because you meantion reveal moulding. That puzzled me.

      But anyway- in that case-- don't be too sure of that application. I don't have a camera to prove it, but I just went and looked at the real deal- in 1:1 scale. Remember that '54-'56 wagons, '57 Pelhams/Parkviews and '57/8 Scotsman are all two door bodies. As such their rear quarter glass seal is a bit different. The front is notched for the track the glass slides in. This is not to say it won't partially work for us D body owners~ anything is better then what we've got right now!!!

        Rear Quarter Window Seal for '57-'58 "P" Body Station Wagons

        Bob, 1320142 W/S for (2) will only fit 1957-1958 "P" Body 4 Door Wagons.
        The '60-'62 "P" Body Wagons get 1337166 W/S for (2).


        Neither are applicable to '54 to '59 "D" Body 2 dr. Wagons, which get:

        305530 for (2) on '54 to '59 "D" Body 2 dr. Wagons
        and 1336136 & 137 for the '60-'62 "D" Body 2 dr. Wagons.
        Remember that there actually WERE a few '62 "D" Bodies.

          Well then - there you have it. I'd forgotten about the slider glasses. SO 57-58 Peabodys is better'n nuttin. And Matthew, he's already got the stuff. My pair's on the way. And judging by the pretty good originals that I took out - these gaskets - being a straight extrusion - will buckle up on the inside at the corners. Outside flap countours nicely.

            I'll check the prints next week to see what the differences are between the various part numbers. In any case we should have the seals available soon. Ed Reynolds

              Country Sedan, Provincial and Broadmoor Seals

              Hee, hee; I am thinking that if it were not for the somewhat more extravagant
              '57-'58 Packard Wagon owners, you few Provincial and Broadmoor owners would be SOL!!

                I hope somebody gets this figured out. I am in need of the seal for the 2 side stationary glasses for my 56 Parkview and the rubber seal that goes between the 2 tail gates.

                    Rich, I'm betting there's a lot more '57-58 Stude wagons out there than Packards.

                        Don't worry Chip. I've never surmized that about you. Fact is, it would be a real feat to ride the horses of Extravagant and CASO at the same time.

                          OK Chip, so "somewhat extravagant" might not be the best choice of words for ALL of the owners, BUT I am sure you know that restoring or purchasing (in the last 10-15 years) a very nice or restored '57 Packard even a bit more so than a '58, would cost some serious coin, WAY more than a comparable Stude. Wagon.

                          And I am focusing primarily on the amount of Chrome plating and trim restoration needed especially on that front end, a Studebaker Grille is a long lasting, simple, cheap, non-pitting stainless steel one. The Packard has a way more expensive to plate PAIR of front Bumpers as well.

                          Not to say that those Luxurious Interiors would not be pricey to restore either!

                            I notice in the SI 2012 White Christmas catalog (just rec'd), Ed has the rear Quarter Window Rubber Seals listed for sale as "New Item." For 57-58 Station Wagon and 60-62 Station Wagon.

                              This seal does not fit a 2 door wagon right. I need one for a 2 door wagon.
