    I often advertise parts I have for sale here and other places and offer to deliver them to the meet. I then take the pre-sold parts with me and meet with the buyer.

    I'm sure you are relieved to have found the problem. Less than skillful modifications by previous owners can cause all sorts of trouble.

    My former brother-in-law had a record with drag sounds and music. There was one rack that was just a fuel dragster leaving the line and fading away. Occasionally, I would set my stereo speakers in...

    That was about the year I thought, but I wasn't sure. It was common years ago to see gauges swapped into hot rods from later cars. I remember some hat I really liked in their new location.

    Are these Studebaker gauges?

    There is a 32 Ford coupe on BarnFinds that has this dash in it. Are these Studebaker gauges or just similar?

    It is good stuff. I have used it on all sorts of old pieces. I have even soaked some switches and terminal blocks without harming them.

    Auto parts stores have all sorts of hose adapters. If you can find a good one, they should have what you need.

    Based on many pictures I have seen, I would say that the factory did not paint the raised ribs on the tail gates. I have seen trucks with it painted and it gives a little extra "pop" to that area.

    Since it is stock, my guess would be that it allows the rigid line to have a little give. This would help when attaching the line and might avoid vibration cracking.

    I had to do none of this when I bought Lenard Shepard's car from his son. I'm not sure what the difference is.

    That's what I thought. I had one of those "My other car is a Studebaker" license frames on the back, but it banged the lift gate when it was closed. Now I have a small SDC decal on the back glass.

    I doubt the color was exactly the same from batch to batch. It would not have been that important to them. Add to that the fact that time and use varies from engine to engine. The SI paint will be...

    In the 70s it seemed like every kid with a "hot" car had an STP sticker on his window. I never had anything worthy of the treatment until after I knew better.
