  • 1949 Champion or Commander Knobs and Switches

    The '49 model had clear yellow plastic backs on their knobs and switches. My 49 Champion was restored with those from a 47 / 48 model having a black plastic back. Wonder why they changed it for one model year.... Anyone have spare knobs and switches from that year squirreled away in their garage including the OD and hood cables with knobs that are correct for my model? The Studebaker parts vendors don't have any.

    You will have a better chance of finding them if you post the part numbers of what you need. I think I may have a lot of what you need in my parts stash but only said part numbers will confirm that. Also if you give a vendor part numbers they may also be surprised to find they have them

        The hood control knob is definitely hard to come by. Ash tray knob probably turns up on eBay occasionally.
