    Most people do no realize the first company that Charlie Bludhorm purchased on his arrival in the US was Michigan Plating & Stamping. It was the first company of what was to become Gulf & Western Industries a conglomerate of over 1,400 companies at one time. It was rumored he bought Michigan Plating & Stamping because of the Studebaker contracts. I worked for Gulf & Western for 4 years in the late 70's. I had forgotten completely about this until Super55 posting.

    Studebaker Bumper Suppliers from 1934 to 1958

    Hello Studebaker Drivers
    I am trying to do some research on Michigan Bumper Co. which was later Michigan Plating and Stamping. The information I am seeking is whether or not they manufactured bumpers for General Motors and/or Chevy trucks, but there is a Studebaker connection.
    While searching the internet I did find that MBC had a contract to make bumpers for Studebakers. Some Chevy trucks have a MBC stamped on of them and no one knows why. I am curious if any of you have seen MBC stamped on any Studebaker bumpers. If so, that might solve the mystery of the MBC.

    Thanks for any information.
Working...
