    Thanks for that information. I have access to a free 53 K dashboard and clock and I will need one for my Speedster. You guys always come through.

      If that 53K dash is from a Champion, the clock will fit. If it is from a Commander, the clock will not fit your '55 Speedster.

Therefore, I suspect he must have lasted at least a year later. http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...debaker-Driver Craig
          Hi, Craig. I e-mailed Milt Yoder with our question about when Earle Haley left Studebaker.

          Here is Milt's complete answer:

          Bob: I also thought he left around '53. He was only there a couple years, he then went to California.
          His picture is in the '56 shop manual, he always found it amusing that his picture appeared after he left. Milt

          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.

            It does stand to reason that when Earle left Studebaker, that he would be working on the shop manual on future models. Earle mentioned when he can and visited with our chapter of his work in both service on the 50 models, and work on the shop manual on the 53 models. When he left Tucson he was driving his 57 Gray Commander on his way to College Station Texas to help set up a new chapter. He was very encouraging to me at the time as the newsletter editor of our chapter.
