  • 1955 Commander

    Help, I have a new project, its a 55 Commander 4-door. The back bumper and the passeneger side rear fender have been smashed. Is there any other year Studebaker that the bumper and fender would work? Would the bumper or fender off a 55 wagon work? Thanks for any help.

    The wagon fender is on a two door car, wont' work.

    The 55 rear bumper is different than the 53 and 54, but later bumpers will work. The GT rear bumpers are similar, but others will have to tell if they will fit.

    The rear fenders from any 53, 54 or 55 four door will work.

    Other, later fenders will fit, but won't match the rest of the car.

      Clyde. I have a new Studebaker project too. a 1955 Commander 4 door deluxe v8. Here are a few picture of what I have to start from. Car was last driven in 2006. I picked it up last weekend. What I have found wrong or needs work are smalls rust hole in floor panels except pass. front large holes. Transmittion works in fwd only. brake lens broken rust aroud vent in front fenders and below headlights. Front end chrome needs redone and both bumpers.
