  4. That happens to be a 32 Studebaker Rockney Coupe. I bought one in 1962 and have looked at it every Day since. Hope to Burn more Rubber in it again soon. That is the only other one I've ever seen in all my years. Kool!

    I found some thus:
    Go to Google image
    click on "advanced" to get proper search screen
    put Rockne on top line
    put year on third line...I put in 1931 1932 because I think they are same body. Search.
    Got a surprising number of Rockne cars...search is of course full of hits on Knute Rockne's death, but I would not add in more search words like "Studebaker", because you can't predict how many hits that would block. Better to pick through the results for the car pics.

  10. Locab; That's not a 32. Check out the 3 door hinges and Visor. Click on my Name and go to my Profile, there she is.

    I've got a '32 or '33 Rockney chassis, and except for the spring arrangement, the frame looks very much like my 32 Ford frame. It's so close, it makes one suspect some kind of industrial espionage back in the day.

    Sure looks like a 32 Rockne to me. I sold mine to finance my newest project. I'm sure I'll shoot myself someday for it. :( I really like the body a LOT. Here are some pics...
