  • Anybody parting out a 2 Door wagon?

    For my 54 Conestoga I need the rear lip of the spare tire well above the hinges. See the picture below. I have new hinges from Studebaker International. If some one can cut this piece out of a car that they are "terminating" that would save me having to form and fit a new piece.



    Thanks

    I wouldn't limit myself to two door wagons. I'm thinking that this part of the body is the same on all the wagons from 54 to 59.

    BTW. I'd like to see some pictures of your car. I'm working on my 54 Conestoga and it's almost ready to get back on the road.

      I figured as much Roy. Was even thinking it might be similar in Lark wagons, but just did not know. Here is a link to pictures of my Conestoga. I have not really started on it yet, just been gathering parts. It is going to get drive train and suspension from a '64 Cruiser.

      How about some pictures of yours?

        That looks very much like the one I parted out 20 years ago. Mine was a deluxe, and not a regal, like yours. same color and equipment, though. The engine was still strong and It's been sitting in my garage awaiting a new car.

        My 54 Conestoga is a regal Commander. It's black with an orange/red window band. I have the interior partially apart because I was putting new stainless/chrome on it. It's been sitting for a few years, so I have to bleed the brakes, change the oil, and fire it up.

        I'l try to figure out how to post pictures here.



        Good luck with your project. I may have some parts if you need them.

          Pat,

          I just got my copy of Old Cars Weekly and they have a 54 Conestoga wagon for sale in the Kenny's Klunkers section. It may not be what you are looking for but if you would like the phone number to follow up, send me an e-mail and I'll give it to you.

          It appears to be in North Carolina but I'm not sure.

            Thanks Jon. Unless they are planning on parting it out that wouldn't interest me.

              I kinda figured that but thought I would let you know anyway.

                Like to help but around here anything from the door handles down is worse than your pic.
