  • Complete Ignition lock Switch for 63 Hawk

    I was fortunate to find and talk with a long time owner of the 63 GT
    I bought in March.
    She got the car in 1979 as a present from her Dad (who owned over twenty Studebakers
    in his collection). She told me the Ignition switch had gone south around 1985 and
    was replaced with a Chevy switch. Such a travesty.
    I am rewiring the car and would like to replace the assembly but neither SASCO or
    SI have the whole assembly, they sell the switch but not the spring ,washer and bezel.
    Any one have a spare they would part with for $$. Also can't find any one who stocks
    the armrests. Both of mine are pretty bad shape.
    Thank you--this is a great forum!!!

    Have you tried these folks out of
    Phoenix AZ. https://www.studebakerparts.com/
    Just checking their on line inventory
    they do have the Locks, springs, spacer,
    the bezel is on backorder...course it's
    all dependent on your part # unless they
    were all generic to each other

    Hope this helps...at least a try.

      Stephen Allen Studebaker had some arm rests, but they are hard to find depending upon the color. http://www.mystudebaker.com

        Vinyl covered armrests can be dyed any color, I thought. There was a nice set on ebay a while back.

          Thank You All for the suggestions. I ordered rhe Ign.Sw. with a used bezel from Stephen Allen. No one has armests that I could find. The rear ones are in good shape so I will use them up front and repair the others for use in back seat area until newer can be found.
          Thanks again for caring.

            Stephen Allen's is a top notch place, for sure! Greatest people to deal with to. Nice guys...

            I have a question about your signature; it says you have a 59 Starlight. Are you reffering to a 59 Hawk? I didn't think there was a Starlight anything in 59.

              There is nothing trick about the arm rests. Any good auto upholstery
              shop can redo them.

                This is after the fact in your case, but I've seen vendor(s) that handle an ignition switch bezel that is evidently turned from aluminum and polished. It functions and fits the same as the original cast-metal/plated style that is prone to breaking around the tabs that hold it. They were reasonably priced, as I recall.

                  MBSTUDE-

                  Just had three eye surgeries in last two months which is my excuse for
                  typing "59" instead of "50". Well "0" is next to "9" on the keyboard
                  so my 1950 Champion Starlight became an Imaginary car. Sorry.
