  • 64 Cruiser Restored (or at least, Refurbished)

    Lots more pictures, but here are only before and after photos. Car belonged to both Ralph Beltram, and Dick Clemens, in SoCal, in that order. Don't know original owner. Before After

    More photos: New paint- Parchment White, matches inside of trunk color, new carpets, new headliner, wheels re-painted, new tires, new Strato-View mirror, chrome polished, side trim re-striped, total expenses around $6,500 including purchase price. Only surface rust, floors rust-proofed and spot painted. Instrument and steering wheel chrome slightly rusted and pitted. Studebaker aiir conditioning needs new check valve and fittings for new-type coolant.



    I have edited this thread to include the image links to my Photobucket albums, which was not possible using the new (beta) version of Photobucket. By clicking on any of these thumbnails you will be linked to my full size photos in all my albums of all my Studebakers. JFW 11/13/2012

      What's with the spotlight? I though they were only available on fleet type vehicles by the early 1960's.

              I agree. Except for the lack of palm trees; it looks like a stereotypical SoCal neighborhood from the 1960's.
