          I have a set of the 'Genuine Parts STUDEBAKER Approved Service' wooden letters that came out of Import Motors in Delta, Colorado a few years ago. I have seen somewhere on the net that someone is making reproductions. They were painted a dark red color.

              VIA Bill Pressler comes this 1950s photo of The Carl E. Filer Company Parts Counter in Greenville PA, authorized Studebaker (and Packard) Dealer:



              Mr. Filer is the gentleman to the right. BP
              We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

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

              G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                HAWK 64,
                Could you email me a photo of your Baker Brothers pin & ribbon?
                I will keep a copy of it for myself and also pass it along to one of the Baker Daughters.
                dulymiller@gmail.com
                THANKS!

                    Just remembered I had another with Eli Spicer behind the counter. Note the same photo as started this thread is shown on the counter in front of Mr Spicer.

                          Anybody want to build their own parts counter?

                          Sorry the scans aren't a little better. Blueprints can be hard to do sometimes.

                          *I'm not sure why the one is up side down and the other sideways. I rotated them. You can thank the great and powerful, new and improved Photobucket for that stunt... So far, I'm less than impressed with it.
