  • Rockne question

    Would anyone have a photo of a (lack of the proper word or description) radiator support or whatever its called in those days? The piece or pieces that tie the front fenders, headlamps, radiator, hood panels and grille shell all together. It would be much appreciated.

    Tom,
    I'll see if I can find time tomorrow to take some photos of specific requests.
    You got a Rockne you're working on?

      The Iowa Hawkeye Chapter SDC was gifted a 32 Rockne from one of our club members and I volunteered to store it til which time we decide on what to do with it. Its been tore down and in pieces. The frame and running gear has been finished along with the all the bright work. Three of the four fenders have been reconditioned, with the one rear needing to be replaced. Anyways Im trying to go through it all and see whats missing and I didn't locat that part.

          The title says 1932, coupe, 75-Q-1. So would this make a 41 model Rockne?

            Okay, Tom. I'm not going to be of much help here. The Rockne Model 75 is more akin to the Studebaker Model 55. It is a full size Studebaker with a Rockne moniker.
            Larry Tholen is the treasurer of the Antique Studebaker Club and keeper of the Rockne Registry.

            He is also himself the owner of a beautifully restored Model 75 coupe. I'm sure if you contact him he will be more than willing to supply any information and photos you may need.

            He joined this forum but has only made one post in February, 2008.
