  • Studebaker 62S-F4 parts car

    The frame rails are shot and the body to rails supports are also gone, but lots of good parts. I'm removing some parts to put in the back of my PU. Will be going from Des Moines, Iowa to the Studebaker meet in a couple weeks.Click image for larger version

    I'd send an e-mail to Allstate Insurance!! I bet they'll pay TOP DOLLAR for that car!

            Rick, the "insurance one" refers to an Allstate Insurance ad that was produced many years ago.

            It depicted an decrpit old 1962 Lark Six 2-door, referring to it as "The Clunker," citing how unsafe it was to have cars like that on the road, threatenting the nation's motoring safety. It was famously called The Clunker Ad.

            They undoubtedly used a Studebaker in the ad because Studebaker was no longer producing cars, so they figured they'd get no backlash from the manufacturer. They didn't identify the car as a Studebaker, though, and unless you knew what a 1962 F-body Lark looked like, you probably didn't know what it was.

            But there was no attempt to disguise it's silhouette, either, so it caused some furor among Studebaker followers of the day, myself and others around here included, as it was cast in a terrible light and shown smoking as a gross polluter, too. BP

                WOW- that's pretty rotten of Allstate. So, just a couple of rotten apples can spoil the whole barrel. I'm looking out the window at my 62 as I sit here. I would kind of like to re-do it. The body doesn't scare me, I can fix it. I would have to replace the frame. I'm a pretty good mechanic, but don't know if I can replace a frame or not. Is it a straight forward job? I have a motor stand and a cherry picker, but that's it. Rick

                  Yes it is. No cutting or welding required. LOTS of Aero-Kroil on those bolts to make it easier, and 27.5 hours according the Studebaker Flat Rate Maunal.

                    If your serious I think it's an all right Idea. I could see finding a frame and a V8/tranny. Getting it structurally sound, then get it dixed how ever, fiberglass, rivets, body filler, who cares? If you fix it the wrong way who's gonna judge you, it's not like your doing it to a nice solid car or something. You'd be saving it from the brink of destruction, so do I'd do it how ever you like.
