        I think Ian is just too busy with other businesses and projects. The parts business is extremely time consuming and involves a lot of after hours research which Ian probably doesn't have time for anymore.

          Cool beans, Matt. Just out of curiosity, how rare are RHC-specific parts, and do you guys have much call for them? 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.

            Hi Bob, RHC mechanical parts are generally pretty easy to find but some dash overlays and pads are becoming very hard to find.

              Sounds like Studes will be alive and well, down under, for many years to come

                I hope we have not seen the Last of Ian ? he has been coming over for the International's since 2001 and since about 2005 has stayed with his here In California, my guess I have sent him close to 100 cars over the years most of them Studebaker's.

                  Matt and Chris,
                  there is a guy in Holland that would probably be the largest parts supply outside the US. I don't think he sells much though. I have never seen it, but I am told it is a substantial holding in several barns.

                  Well done on getting the parts from Ian, he is just too busy to do much with it and you guys are just right for driving this forward in OZ.

                    Matt and/or Chris, I looked through your website: http://studeparts.com.au/index.html ,but I didn't find any 'Studebaker of Australia' branded clothing for sale. I would like to purchase a Studebaker of Australia T-shirt if (or when) you have such a thing available in your store.

                          Hi Matt,
                          I wear a size Medium. I haven't been on Facebook for a long time. I don't care what color it is, as long as it isn't black. Perhaps Svenja can pick one out for me.
                          Total up the price and let me know what method of payment you prefer. No rush, it wont be T-shirt weather around here until June of next year! Thank you

                            Brent, what do you have against Black? You can just send the one I left in your car back if not happy with it, I think black with white letter really stands out ....Bob

                              Hi Greg, thats interesting about the parts in Holland. I did hear something about it many years ago but have never been there. I am guessing those parts would have come from a European parts depot or assembly operation in Belgium.

                              Yes Ian was far too busy and there was a need for someone a little bit insane (like myself!!) to sort through it all and market the parts worldwide.

                              Chris.
