    A good reason to go out and lube that cable every now and then!

    All this talk about broken hood release cables brings to mind: I walked into Quad Cities Midwest Corvette years ago for the purpose of hiring a fiber glass tech to install the N&A Avanti hinge re-enforcement pieces in my '63 Avanti. I watched the release of a Corvette hood with a broken cable. Out came the skill saw and cut the hood at both corners. It done the trick, now a hood repair was in order. Studebaker had the foresight to provide access holes to trip the latches if the cable broke...........

    Thanks to all who have helped. I did get a cable at the auto parts store as a temporary fix until I can find a replacement,vif thats possible. Ive tried SASCO and Studebaker parts NLA. I'll keep looking!

    I think it's NLA. There are some around but you need to inquire, inquire, inquire.

    I picked one off Stephen Allen's table at York in '07. His remark at the time was "Not many of those left."

    Considering the popularity of the '51 models (all models and body styles should use the same cable) it's surprising repops aren't yet in the mix.

    Try SASCO in South Bend. I bought one for my '59 Lark in '07 & a friend of mine bought one for his '51 Champion. No guarantee that they are still in stock, but it's worth a try.

    Checkout your local auto parts. Could be labeled control or maybe choke cable. I bought on for my 41 for about six bucks. Glad you got your hood open

    There was a thread about this a few months back. You can probably find it with a search here. If I remember correctly it involves taking a long screwdriver and tripping the lever from underneath the shrouding.

    Hood cable broken

    I went to open the hood of my 1951 Commander and the hood release cable broke! How do I get my hood open and where can I find a replacement cable? Thank you
