  • Gauge Cluster Restoration

    My good friend Bob is restoring his dad's 49 Stude 3/4 ton Pickup.
    He needs a good place to restore his gauge cluster. Any recommendations come to mind?

    If you have a Speedotach near you, the repair old gauges. Otherwise, I would go to Hemmings Motor News advertisers.

      I believe the 3R glass has been reproduced; not sure about the 2R.

        For over 10 years I have used Red Line Gauge out of Humboldt Tenn. They are great. Here is the number. 731-571-0766. Asked for John. Good, fair and reasonable. Good Luck

          if this uses the horizontal speedo, I think Gary Ash has made some slide-ons for these if you only need to cosmetically restore them

            See Norm Miller's ad in the Antique Studebaker Review. If your glass is not broken and that is all you need restored Phoenix Restoration, Davenport Iowa can do it. Might also check w/Gary Ash for a repop.
