        Studebakerparts.com has the rubber for front and rear. Front glass can be replaced by new flat glass, rear windows are curved and mine were good so can't suggest anything for them.

          thanks Bob..i already found him. Chuck has been very helpful this afternoon! he does not have door glass, but may source it before i need it.

          What is the story with hinges on trunk? Rough deal? Really do not work well, not sure why. You have to push trunk lid corner down, not a very good fit,poor alignment. Makes me think of Dodge dart style J shaped trunk hinges; that lattice work thing is a trip and a half!

          Nice job on your champion, I notice painted headlight covers. i have that problem, too

            The side glasses can be made by any glass shop, don't try to buy old ones for more $.

            I have had nothing but trouble with my trunk hinges and don't know why. 2 pair and both are sprung. One of the two pair had been on it since I was born and I've closed it thousands of times. Then they spring, and so do the new ones. I'm bummed and don't understand.

            The left headlight rim is original, the right is painted chrome. The right one got itself into a wreck in high school and we replaced the whole fender. I like these as they are what are original and go with the trim level.

              Thanks again Bob..there may be a later hinge upgrade, as i am told some replacement part #s changed, may be an improvement . And, Anne, I apologize. Russ got back to me, has all of it , it was just not listed anywhere I could find. you are right! It always pays to ask, is the lesson there...So triple thanks, to all

              Great site.....
