  • Part Numbers

    Is there a part number stamped someplace on front passenger door circa late 50's to early 60's?
    I bought a right front door on Ebay for my 60 Lark but it is too large. I'm going to try to sell it but don't want somebody else to make the same mistake I did.

    NO - no numbers.

    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1963 Cruiser
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    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.

        If your Lark is a 4-door, you probably have a door for a 2-door sedan. As Jeff noted, the doors for the 2-doors are longer. And the doors for the hardtops and convertibles don't have the frame around the window.

          The part numbers for NOS replacement doors were usually a yellow number spraypainted by a template on the inside door panel. I have never seen that number on an OEM door.

          IF the size of the door is correct(length/height), but the window surround doesn't fit the roofline- it's likely you have a '57-'60 (?) station wagon door. I was sold an NOS wagon door and told it would fit a '59-60 and my champ truck... but of course- it doesn't. It is about 3/4" too tall at the back.

          The wagon door also does not have the body-line stamping at the top rear of the window frame:



          You should be able to see where Studebaker welded a different "top" onto the window frame:



          I cut the top off my original door- and installed it on this NOS door.
