    My Grandmother gave me her Studie back in 1981 in eastern Montana. We drove it home without the jack to Wa state followed by my wife In our Datsun, and had to use the Datsun scissor jack to fix a flat.

    6 years later we went back to Mont, went out to her long-abandoned farm 35 miles out of town. As we were leaving the farm, I spotted the jack standing in its stand on the front steps to the farmhouse. It had been there, unmollested for over 30 years! It has a place of honor now in it's original trunk.

    The P/H jack shown looks like the one that came with my '57 Buick. I think it was the original, but I'm not sure. Jim

    Wow! I just got a surprise! Finally opened the rear tailgate of my 59 Lark wagon, lifted up the rear floor section & lo & behold- there was not just one jack but two, sitting complete with bases & even a spare tire. Of course the tire was flat & rotten but what a surprise! Now to see which one is the original- their both different.

    All cars of the period came with pretty much the same bumper jack. It is absolutely not a safe tool but, even the more modern scissor jacks have stability issues. I would choose to use neither if I had the option to carry a floor jack and jack stands. I once had to change a flat tire on the rear of a '57 Cadillac on a Christmas Eve at night at the top of a mountain in a full blown snowstorm in order to make it home for the holiday; YEAH! Just like John Walton in the original "Homecoming" movie.
    It's what we had at the time. We used what we had; hopefully exercising some modicum of common sense. A half century or more has passed and much has improved; not least of which is our ability to summon help with touch of a cell phone.

    You will not only have a flat tire but also an accident.

    Agree. I still have a scar about 2" long on the side of my left knee, from the late 1960s. It happened when a bumper jack popped put from under the rear bumper of a 56J, and the top of the stalk "got me".

    I have one from a '60 Lark and one from a '63 Cruiser I can bring to Reedsville; but no lug wrench.
