      There is a chapter of SDC in Sweden. They may know of some European parts sources.

        Sarnia Ontario Kijiji has a 36' Studebaker for $2,000 which seems to have the parts that you need.

          Fredrik, from one Swede to another, by all means join the SDC and your local chapter.

          For specifically pre-war vehicles I highly recommend you join the ASC.

          I would note that The Antique Studebaker Club does not have it's own forum, but links to the Studebaker, Erskine, Rockne section of the AACA forum.

            Looks to have some parts, doesn't show a trunk lid, but cost to ship might make it unworkable

              Hi Frederic
              I doubt you will get parts in Sweden to make your car complete very easily so the Canadian car for parts is by far your best option without question
              The body on that cAr looks excellent.
              My guy feel is that you could pick that car up for half that and the groupage ship what you need home to get you over the line.
              The club is strong in Sweden but I doubt anyone would have the parts there so here is your once in a lifetime chance. It doe not get any better.

              Regards

                The 1937 and 1936 share the same body, both Dictator and President. That significantly broadens the parts availability.
