  • 1928 President

    Posted - 11/06/2007 : 12:05:40 AM
    I know that this is mostly a post war Studebaker site, but I'm going to reach out here. I'm a proud, proud, proud new owner of a 1928 FB President W1 State sedan. I wish to restore to the best of my ability as I have done with my other cars, which are mostly from the 60's, and 70's. Brand new to Studes. Car is complete and runs. looking for any literature on this car. I have the parts book from faxon, but need so much more info and resources before I attack this project which I'm very excited about. Any help to send me in the right direction would be very greatly appreciated. Thank you very much. I'm honored to be in this community. Dale

    Hi Dale! Post a picture if you're able. The 1928 Presidents were one of the nicest looking cars of the era.

    I don't know much about them, but according to information in Turning Wheels, the FB models have a 121" wheelbase. At least that's a little information!

      It certainly would behoove you to join the Antique Studebaker Club. We cater to the pre-war Studebakers only. We have no active forum but a lot of active members and a bi-monthly magazine edited by SDC's own Richard Quinn.
      There is some Studebaker activity on the AACA Forum.
      Here is the ASC web site, and there's a link in it to the AACA Studebaker Forum.
