    Drivers side is hard to find in good used condition. Studebaker International has reproductions.

      Patrick, Welcome to the Forum. Part you need is PN 1314903, Striker, left front door. Both Stephen Allen's and Studebaker International show to have these.
      Main reason these break is door is out of adjustment and when door is closed latch hits striker. Before you install new striker make sure door is properly adjusted. Purpose of striker is to keep door shut, NOT to position it.

        Rear door strikers are the same, as far as I can see, and usually had less wear. Might be worth checking for some used ones.

          Check with Tom Karkiewicz for used ones.
