    The Moog catalog lists a large number of tie rod ends by size and thread. However, Moog refuses to say whether a modern end will fit an antique application for fear of liability issues. That said,...

    Thank you, Joe.

    This is how #37 and the other Studebaker Indy cars should be seen and heard:

  3. A vehicle for your snow-covered, unpaved, uphill driveway

    We’re visiting in the mountains of Montana, saw an interesting accessorized Jeep in the garage. It’s a 4-door Jeep Rubicon with a set of track conversions. It looks like it could go anywhere. The...

    Yes, I'm really thinking about the 1941 Commander Land Cruiser I just bought. It has exactly the same brakes that my M5 truck originally came with, should easily convert to the 8E5 truck brakes, as...
  5. Brakes: Backing plate interchange: V8 cars to 8E5 trucks (and earlier trucks and cars)

    Some years ago, I installed complete brakes from an 8E5 truck with 11" drums on my 1948 M5 truck. It was easy because the bolt holes in the 8E5 backing plates matched up with the holes in the M5...
  6. 1931 Indy car: a last look before the auction

    We were at the Valpey home in NH on Sunday Aug. 4 for the celebration of the late Bob Valpey’s life. The automobile collection was on display, from the Crosley Farm-o-Road to the 1914 Studebaker bus...
  7. Richard Vaux: TWA pilot in Beirut hijacking, Avanti owner, Studebaker employee

    Here is the obituary for Richard Vaux that appeared on July 29, 2019 in the Boston Globe. While we had certainly seen Dick Vaux at SDC meets in New England in his turquoise Avanti, we had never put...

    Yes, it's exactly the same crappy cardboard-and-foam material in AMC and Studebaker. I heard a story once that someone had contacted the company that originally made it and asked to get some more...

    If you have the right kind of 3D printer, I've got the CAD files to print your own 1932 Studebaker Indy car. I've printed out both a 7" and a 10" long version that have good detail, just need a much...

    I was at a bit of a loss for the meaning of "road tramp", but a paper presented at a 1933 meeting of the Indiana chapter of SAE seems to cover many details. I'll bet some Studebaker engineers were...

    Interesting! The one spring-loaded tie rod end with three regular ends was only used in 1937, and they swapped the spring-loaded end from the short tie rod to the long one after the year started. ...

    Studebakers on VMCCA tour in Dayton, OH

    We’re on the Heritage Tour with the Vintage Motor Car Club of America (VMCCA) driving my 1948 M5 truck. There are about 50 other cars of various makes and vintages, ranging from a 1927 Velie to a...

    I believe that the rumor of one of the Indy cars being lost on a sunk ship bound for South America is just a rumor. One car did go to South Africa, where it was later scrapped after 1959, the body...

    The car that DieselJim refers to is the white #34 car which wears a 1933-style body.
    Here’s a page about the car: https://tomstrongman.com/1933-studebaker-indy-car/
    In 1932, that chassis had a...
  17. Studebaker Indy car #37 to be auctioned Aug. 16-17

    The green #37 Indy car built in 1931 and raced 1931-33 was owned by the late Bob Valpey. It will be auctioned by Gooding & Co. at the Pebble Beach auctions on Aug. 16-17. It won’t go cheaply, but if...

    After some more adjusting of the 3D CAD file, I was able to print out a complete car about 9.25" long. Using fine resolution on the 3D printer and relatively slow printing speed, I got pretty smooth...

    A couple of you said you wanted 3D printed versions of the Indy car, so I thought that I'd want one printed out. I was able to generate an STL file for printing and tried it out on my Creality Ender...

    Yes, it had the Hupp engine in 1932, but I think it had a Studebaker engine in other years at Indy.

    Yes, buying the tool guide for the youngster would be good. I might just buy one for my old self. A Phillips head is not the only "+" type, there are Posidrive, Frearson (Reed and Prince), and...
