  • Rear window needed for a '51 Business Coupe

    I have a shattered driver side rear window in my ride. I think it was the high heat in the garage in the summer.

    I know business coupes specifically are rare - in your Studedom travels does anyone know at all where I could find another ? Definitely a "needle in the haystack" type of item.

    You might try Phillips. They have supplied Studebaker glass for a long time. See: http://autoglassclassics.com/index.html
    I have several pieces of curved rear glass that I haven't identified. If you can't find anything, give me the dimensions and I'll check my glass.

      Holy smokes - very quick response and extremely helpful - thank ya sah !!

      Is your glass all from Studes ?

      My car is not local at this time but I will provide dimensions when I can ... the back window on the biz coupe looks like this:

        I need some education. Back glass on a 51 business coupe is different than other 1951 cars? I thought only the Starlight coupes had different back glass panes.

          Business coupes had a two-piece rear windshield. The same glasses were used '47 thru '51.[^]

          Edit: and they were not the same glass used on other models with 2-piece rear windows.

          1958 Provincial wagon
          1953 Commander coupe
          1957 President two door

          No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            Roy Valdez, who resides here on the forum, has many 50 and 51s. I know he had a pile of glass available too, but may have sold it all. Email him. He's a very good guy.

              Mr. Biggs - really ? crap I was hoping the glass would be the same that was used on the 4 doors.

              sal - thank you very much I will do that if 53K can't hook me up !!

                Rough block size of that backglass is just under 16 x 24".

                    Somewhere I have a set of used glass from a business coupe.
                    The need to be polished,they have a haze.
                    If you can not find any I will try to find them

                      No, unfortunately. That eBay part fits a Starlight coupe. It is the left (front or side) piece of the four pieces. For the Business coupe you need BB55 or maybe today's lingo would be DB55 or DB0055.

                        I finally got a look at the glass I was thinking might be right. Unfortunately, my thinking was wrong. I'm not even sure if the two pieces I have are Studebaker. Sorry.
