      You can disassemble the switches for cleaning, but be very careful as there are ball bearings and small springs inside of switches which will fly out never to be seen again. Also the switches were lubed with white grease that has turned to cement over the years which also causes contact problems. Even if you buy NOS switches, they suffer from the same problems as the original switches. I've had contact problems with other switches such as headlight, instrument light and wiper switches caused by corrosion and petrified grease. Bud

          Ron if care about ANY originality at all, you need to ditch all that fragile Aluminum Dryer Duct hose and or any White Plastic Dryer Duct like Treblig has.

          Studebaker Vendors carry the correct and more durable Wire and cloth reinforced Rubber Heater Duct Hose.

            Agree, maybe. The airflow should be about same with the aluminum ducting, but may be noisier on the road than the rubber stuff.

                Being 76 years old just trying to get car to where it looks good and functions properly so I can get some enjoyment out of driving it while I'm still around and able to do so. Yes, it would be nice to fully and properly restore this GT but my main purpose is getting the thing on the road, I'll leave it behind for someone else with more time on there hands to bring it back original if they so desire.
