    The dealer's sales book is a good source of information on accessories. "Inside Facts 1950" about $100 on ebay.
    Turning Wheels also had a couple good articles about the 1950 Studebakers, but I don't recall off hand what month and year they were in.

      Prior to what I call the "Performance Years" 1955 and on, there were no Engine options except Oil Filter & Air Cleaners, the Engine size was determined by ordering a Champion or Commander.

      The Trim Level, Body Color, Interior Color and Materials, Transmission Type, rarely ordered optional Rear Axle ratios different than the Standard Factory best choice ratio for special purposes were available, anything other than that comes under "Accessories", like Hill holder, Radios, Clock, Cigar Lighter, Wheelcovers, White Wall Tires etc.

      The proper Accessories for each year of Car can be found in the Accessory handbook in the glove compartment.

      The showroom handout Brochures covered most options and possibilities for ordering a Car of your choice.

        You might also want to contact the SNM and order a monograph. The 51-52 book has over 60
        pages of information on almost anything you want to know. Well worth the money.
