  • 51 Studebaker trunk pic request

    Ladies and Gents,

    I would like to request a picture of the inside of a 51 Studebaker trunk. Particularly the striker bar.

    Currently I'm trying to fit that striker bar into my trunk and I think that I may be missing a piece as it isn't lining up with the latch correctly. It's only off by a hair so it will not trip the latch mechanism.

    Anyhow if I could get a picture, I would greatly appreciate it. That way I can see what the heck I'm doing wrong, how it is set up and what parts are required. Thanks for your time.

      Thanks a bunch, rockne! That'll do it. I knew I wasn't nuts (at least not in regards to this)...Hmm...maybe I'll just have to fiddle with it a bit more. It appears that the flanges that have to be bolted down are bent too far forward on mine. Looks like I'll just have to bend them back. Thanks again.
