    Many mechanical parts are available through local suppliers...but they don't know it because Studebaker is rarely if ever listed in their computer databases. Some old-time parts houses may have held onto their old print catalogs which would list Studebaker and other older makes.

    If if we do our due diligence and use our resources...both here, other online sources, etc., and learn interchanges so when we go to Pep Boys or any other local source, we give them the part number and get what we want rather than walk out empty handed and frustrated because their parts guy doesn't know beyond his computer's screen.
