  • Body: Core support question

    Getting ready to bolt the core support to the frame on a 65 Cruiser. Is there suppose to be a rubber shim between the core support and the frame or does it bolt metal to metal? I think there should be rubber between them since it looks like Studebaker insulated everything with rubber shims....

    I don't know about a 65 but my 59 Lark has no rubber shim at the core support to frame mount.

      Jamie, your '65/'66 parts manual should show an exploded view of the front body support components.

          No rubber involved - unless it's a sliding roof wagon.
          No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
