  • My 58 President 2 dr hd top

    bought this off ebay about 2 1/2 yrs ago, from Oaklahoma City. (site unseen) I've been working on it for about 1 1/2 yrs now. I had one of these about 25 yrs ago, but gave it away to my neighbor. It was a beautiful car. Studebakers are the way to go!!!!

    Jim, what a great-looking car! The best color you could get that year too, in my opinion. You sure don't see many '58's! Thanks for sharing!

      I see that your nice car has optional 15 inch wheels. Was the car built with this option or were they added later?

          If you get the factory build sheet for your car from the SNM, it should indicate if your car was built with optional 15 inch wheels, or not.

            Jim~ FYI, hitting the 'enter' key between each of your pics will put them under each other. I don't know when you added those other two, but this is the first time I noticed them.

            It'll also tell us about the other (and less often seen) option you have on your car...

              I tried hitting the enter under edit, it wouldn't work, I gruess you

              have to do it while making the orginal entry. I also put a call into

              the Stude Nat Museum. Their ad used the term "Productio Order", I'm

              not sure if that means build sheet. But I am going to get one.

                They are commonly referred to as build sheets, but I think that it says production order on the top of the form. In any case, that is what you want. It will include your car's numbers, build date, if it was an ordered car, if ordered-where it was shipped to, what options were on/with the car when it was built, etc.

                    When you get the build sheet could you let me know which dealer ordered it?

                    Thanks

                      Lovely!

                      There's a 58 Commander 4dr locally (Hamilton ON) in exactly the same colours...very classy. A 58 Packard hardtop in nearly the same shades (the maroon is a bit lighter) also lives hereabouts.
