    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.

    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.

    This at the old museum in 2005. Compare with the original photo shown at the start of this thread.

    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.

    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.

    Chris.

    Didn't Gary Ash have plans or Font matching letters for sale.

    I emailed you Gary if you have.

    Maybe a happy Studebaker parts customer!!!

    From the FWIW Dept;

    Look down the isle under the "...E R" in STUDEBAKER and you will see the exterior windows/wall of the original Plant 8 ...before the latest addition to the north end of the building was added to house; offices, customer parts counter, loading dock, etc. My office for many years was at the exact opposite (south) end of Plant 8.

    Probably so, Jim. I checked Perpetual Calendar and that is Calendar #6 (April begins Friday, the 1st).

    That calendar was used, among other years outside this range, in 1927, 1938, 1949, 1955, and 1966. BP
