    Where did all of the missing Vent Windows, Vent Window Channels, Window Regulators, Roll-up Window Glass, Door Handles, Door Latches; in other words all the missing guts from all those Doors GO?

    They are as valuable as the door skins.

    Do these Pictures mean that the whole collection of Doors is now in the dumpster & Gone?
    You only mentioned cleaning up the rented parking lot, NOT your backyard at the house.

    It really is too bad that nowdays with Gas headed for $5.00 a Gallon by Summer, no one can afford to go any real distance, let alone to your yard to pick anything up.

      About half of these doors in the bin have every thing with them, who wants old glass? no one, takes a lot of time to strip out doors once they have been remover from a car, do have some in the shop some even had door panels on the and arm rests, can't save every thing for every body for ever you can try if you want Rich but not me any longer I want to enjoy the cars I have and find time to drive them now and then.

        Thanks for saving what you could,Bob.
        As far as glass goes I chucked my door as well as front and back glass years ago.Ate up storage space and rarely sold.

          I hear ya, Bob. I'm doing a major downsizing this year myself, including selling my home with the yard. This summer lots of stuff will be scrapped, including a bunch of Stude parts and even a few Studes. It's going against my nature and will be really hard to do. Best of luck to you.

            Bob, I have never met you but I am sure your work as a parts vendor will be missed in the future. First, thank you for helping others bring back to life a Studebaker. I truely understand wanting to enjoy your cars, and you should... you deserve to have that time. I retired 3 years ago and had to cut back on all kinds of things I was doing but don't regret taking this time for me to enjoy life..
            I hope you have many GREAT years ahead and get to do all the things that your demands of business would not allow....I always enjoy your post.. Benny

                You did us all a great service for years, Bob. I know it hurts to part with useable stuff, but better that than just moving it around the yard, hoping the needy find you. Good luck..

                  Would you happen to have a rust free hood for a 57 Champion?

                    Bob, I am 2 hours away. If you have any usable rear seats, even door panels for a 55 c body, i would be interested. Also a drivers side window regulator.
