  • Salvage Studebakers

    I have mentioned I spend 1 day a week helping a local yard prepare vehicles for crushing.These are the last 2 Studebakers left in the yard and both will be gone in 2 weeks.Not much left on either.On the truck I am thinking the doors,running boards,fenders and part of the grille.Wagon it's side trim,steering wheel,upper gate and grille assemblies.

    About 20 years ago, I took a 56J carcass to a local junk yard in the California desert. It looked like a plucked chicken, but I still hated to do it. Last summer my bro-in-law, on vacation in TN, saw a 57 Golden Hawk on a trailer, lined up to enter a junk yard. He said it looked fairly complete. I guess sooner or later our cars and ourselves are gonna wind up in that big Studebaker park in the sky.

      How good is the dash chrome on that 54? Also, the front bumper looks pretty straight in the pic. . .

        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

        Ayn Rand:
        "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

        G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

            Do you know how much they are looking for the upper tail gate? How far is the part from Minneapolis?

              I know California is known for nice, rust-free examples, but I've heard they do use some salt in the higher elevations, like Mt. Shasta. Is this correct?

                Same thing here in Arizona: ADOT is starting to use road salt in the Flagstaff area due to its extremely cold winters.............never mind said salt is starting to cause problems with the vegetation there.

                    The brake drums and shoes might be of use to someone. I read in the new SI catalog that they were looking for certain drums and shoes.

                      I would love to buy the stainless hood center strip off the M truck. Yes, I know it's bent.

                      You already mentioned the side trim/belt line mouldings on the Wagon.

                        NO! Don't sell that stuff to Burnette! He'll just remove ANY trace of it's hard-won patina!

                              Ya know, I missed that, but they ARE cool!

                              I'd almost put it on my office door to keep the riff-raff out.
