  • Interested in a Kleenex dispenser for your Studebaker?

    I have one each NOS Kleenex dispensers for the 1947-52 (AC-1823) and the 1953-58 cars (AC-2366). I have finally gotten a price on having them reproduced and am now considering having them done. These would be identical to the original in every detail and sent with a unconditional guarantee of satisfaction. They would retail for $80 plus $7.50 postage. If you are interested contact me direct at rtq11@aol.com and include your street mailing address and phone number. NO MONEY required now. Will contact you when the project is completed. The number of orders I receive will determine if the project is feasible from a economic point. Incidentally the $80 price is for those pre-ordering only and may be increased for those ordering at a later date. Neither of my two NOS samples had the original screws and nuts included so those will be up to the purchaser. If I knew what was offered I would include them (anyone know?). The installation instructions will be included on the box or a separate sheet. Since I need about 150 orders each to make it a feasible project it may require some time and will include ads in TW. One more issue involves the later style, according to the original parts book (price book) the AC-2366 will not fit the Sport Models. By that I assume they mean the Hawks.

    Good price. I paid way more than that for one and almost that much to have the other one chromed. Sorry, I don't need one but I wanted to add my 2 cents about the price as I spent many years looking for mine. Good luck with your venture. They are a popular item.

      If one of them would fit a 63 Regal, I'd be interested in one.

          $80 each for new dispensers sounds like an excellent price compared to what they often go for on eBay. And many of those are a long way from being new!

          And everything that Richard has had reproduced in the past has been of exceptional quality. So I look forward to carrying a few in stock.

            Thanks Chris. I have had 12 different styles of Studebaker wheel covers (hub caps) made along with the '50-51 hood crest and the visor mirrors. The manufacturer did an outstanding job on all. http://www.thestudebakerwheel.com/st...aker_store.htm

              It would probably "fit", but would be incorrect. 1963 Lark and Cruiser models used a plastic tissue box with a dispenser on the top and that top flipped open to hold discarded tissues and the whole box was mounted to the floor with Velcro. That box has a Lark on it.
