  • What should I save from 63 Cruiser

    I'm parting a 63 Cruiser and so far I've removed the powertrain, driveshaft, rear, brakes, front reclining seats, front and rear glass, wiper motor and pwer steering from the tie rods back to the steering wheel which are the only parts I have plans for. I'm wondering if there is anything else I should save that would be worth the effort. Car's been sitting for decades and is rough and rusty, rear fenders are only usable body panels. Thanks

    How is the instrument panel and pad. There has been a lot of interest on the forum lately about the Vanity. Always save the back up lamps, too.

      Dash is pretty bad but vanity is there. What about suspension, door regulators,latches.

        If your Cruiser has any decent sheet metal, hood, doors,
        trunk lid that could be used by someone.
        Also any good trim bits and lights would be good
        to save.
        Post here with a list or the Studebaker Swap site.
        Have fun and you may make somebody happy
        with good parts!

          Save the window regulators for sure if the gears are good. they can be used to fix other reg's.

            I'd be a buyer for the passenger side front regulator if it's in good shape.

              Dash is out, heater is out, usable trim is off. Aren't 4dr rear fenders still available NOS? I'll go after the regulators. Anybody local to Winchester VA need any thing let me know, don't want to get involved with shipping. Hoping its at the scrapyard Monday

                I don't see any mention of saving the Dana HD Model 44 Differential. That would be a keeper/seller for sure.

                Maybe, that is what you mean by: "rear," ??

                  Keep the master cylinder if it is dual-piston. Someday, somebody is going to again have rebuild kits for those and they'll be valuable. BP
                  We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                  "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                    Does it have a lower horn? If so, I would be interested. What color is the interior? - might be interested in the seat belts. Does it have the little plugs in the trunk floor?

                    OK, that's it off the top of my head!
