  • Odd accessory found at York swap meet.

    Picked this up at York last year. Thought it was different and hadn't seen one before. The tube is actually the pump used to fill the air mattress. Any other oddball stude accessories out there?

          These were very popular with the Nash and Rambler crowd. Since many of the front seats folded flat in Nash made cars, they promoted them for camping and hunting/fishing. The company also offered insect screens to go over the window openings when the car was used for sleeping.

            There was one of those in South Bend last year. It was way too rich for my blood but it sold anyway. That's pretty neat about the tube doubling as the pump

              SP-50044. That's really cool! I've never seen one, now I need to check the books for the number.

                A cool beans item, for sure.

                'Probably not originally designed or marketed for Wagonaires, though, Scott. That Part Number sequencing (SP instead of AC) and accessory label design had been phased out by the time the 1963 Wagonaire was introduced. Many of those would have still been in the pipeline and, of course, this one survived, but as an accessory, it was surely introduced some time before the sliding-roof Wagonaire was a reality. BP
                We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                  For the Wagonaires there was a cargo mat and also a rear deck cushion set available as accessories from Studebaker.
