  • NOS Interior Material Needed-1963 Daytona

    I am in the process of disassembling my 63 Lark Daytona convertible to do a frame off and make it a clone R2 Superlark. This car is serial #63V23199. The interior color is 958 Red vinyl, and the carpet is red(maroon). I have an NOS rear carpet, and I have the bucket seats. Here is my dilemma. The rear seat is like new, so I would like to just do the bucket seats and console with NOS material to match. Also, I would like to do the front carpet with NOS carpet to match my rear. I was in touch with Mark Grafton and he told me he had it all on rolls. This was 2 years ago, but after 20 emails and 20 phone calls and no response, I am looking elsewhere.
    Can anyone guide me to where I can get the above carpet and vinyl? Thanks for your help in advance, as the people on this forum have helped me a ton before!
    Please email or let me a private message
    THANKS AGAIN!

          Here's the "Colorado couple" who bought all the NOS Studebaker upholstery from Ed Reynolds when he bought out SASCO:

          Will and Lori Sander (not Sanders) of Nunn, Colorado. Their e-mail addy is:

          starlightstude@att.net

          They are up and running, selling NOS Studebaker material but please remember: As SDCers, they are both relatively-young, full-time school teachers.

          So they don't have full time days to devote to sorting Studebaker upholstery material and answering e-mails in 10 minutes, so be patient.

          They are the nicest people imaginable; I know them personally and spent most of an afternoon at their place in Nunn after the Cedar Rapids SDC International Meet in July 2009. They have all the upholstery stored indoors; it was several 53-foot semi-trailer loads. It is being sorted and gradually made available.

          They have the space, wherewithal, and inclination to make this material available to the Studebaker hobby for some time, but they can't do it overnight under the present circumstances. Kapeche? (Is that how you spell it?) BP

            Methinks it's, "Capiche?," but speelcheeker doesn't like that spelling, either. <G>

                    Capisce is the formal spelling of the word.

                    A man after my own heart, Brad, after several other amateur interests, I enjoy studying word sources, etemology.

                      FWIW....I now have several years and many a butt down on NOS materials covering my seats from Phantom (not Rene) out of Ohio. I can confirm that both the vinyl and the cloth has held up well with useage....
