    Latest find is a 60s 289 with Edelbrock dress-up stuff and McCullough SC going to stuff it into the 55 Conestoga two-door wagon I found in Manor Tx. found the engine in LaVernia Tx.(Thanks Reuben)..the old 53 (Redd Volkearts old ride) has been completely massaged and smoothed(Thanks to Rob Bissell, a metal magician) ready for Enrique to paint (hear that Enrique? I've decided to trade you my 39 Chevy for one of your killer paint jobs)..The 48 three window and the 51 Starlight are jus waitin their time will come..Pipe dream for the Avanti II is a 383 stroker, look out it could run in Street Stock..Lets see, I need an early 50s truck and a 41 Coupe to round off the collection..Thats all the latest news in my Studebaker barn

    Very nice photo. I say that as someone who doesn't care for red cars or for dual headlight Studes. ;)

    It looks lowered.

    Here is my Studebaker. It is a 1925 or 26 ER Standard Six Duplex Roadster Coupe. It was made in Canada and has the second version of the dash board. Not much remained when I bought it. I will either restore it or hot rod it. Depends on what I am able to locate in the next year or so, parts wise

    Nah. It is nice looking, but I'll stick with my 1st Gen Lark style. The 66s are nice looking too.

    I'm pretty sure wagon skirts need to be fabricated. IIRC, you could cut and stretch a sedan skirt to fit, but that's the simplest fab I've read about. I've looked into them a little for mine. I'd love to do something like that, but there are other things in line first.

    If money was no object, well....

    I believe the bodies were pretty much the same from 1947 through 1952. The front ends were different but they all had pretty much the same body. They also changed the rear fenders in 1950.

    BN is correct.

    Cliff notes version:

    47 -> 52 bodies (styles) are the same. [Starlight coupe, business coupe, convert, 2dr, 4dr. etc.].

    47->50 front ends interchange as a whole clip, 'twixt each Champion & Commander models, but not across each other.

    51 -> 52 front ends interchange as a whole clip between & across Champion & Commander models.

    Possibly/probably: (I have not checked this one out) the front fenders on the 51 & 52 are the same, w/an overlay for 52. Hoods are not the same.

    Rear fenders interchange 'twixt each type of the 47->52 body styles easily (coupes, convert & 2dr, + then 4drs & Land Cruiser) , possibly not perfectly, but to minor fitment issues, & of course, taillight orientation(s).

    Doors & trunks should interchange between same body style of 47 -> 52.

    Dashes (complete) should interchange between any body style. Note: gauge & switch placement differences.

    Frames should interchange along each of the family models as front clips do.

    47 -> 50 Champions had one wheelbase, + same front suspension.
    47 - > 50 Commanders had another wheelbase, + a unique front suspension.
    51 -> 52 Champions & Commanders had the same wheelbase (different than 47->50), + the same suspension. ( & the same as the 53 -> 64 Stude cars.
    (Off the top of my head, I can't remember the wb of each, but the 51/52 is ~ 2" longer than the 47->50 Champ & ~ 2" shorter than the 47->50 Commander)

    Except:

    the Land Cruiser. They had 4" extra length in the rear doors. So frames & bodies would be limited to the same year-blocks as the front fender clips mentioned, +, the models.

    Champ 6 cyl will interchange twixt 47->52, & then some, forward & back. Though minor differences exist.
    Commander 6 cyl will interchange twixt 47-> 50, & prior to 47, some minor differences.
    Commander V-8 will exchange from 51-> 64. Externally same.

    HTH.

    Thanks for the great info Marcus. According to the info I collected for this page on my Bullet Nose Paradise website that compares the 50 and 51 models, the wheelbase on the 51 Champ was 2" longer than the 50 and the 51 Commander was 5" shorter than the 50. In 1951 the Champions and Commanders shared the same 115" wheelbase chassis.

    Hmmm... Looks like I remembered wrong, & wanted to double check anyways, to make sure the info got right, one way or another. It's just a wee bit more complicated... :D .

    Had time to grab some Stude info books.


    So, the moral of this story is: Life w/Studes is *never* dull. :D .

    AKA

    * GO BY THE YEAR & WB FOR SWAPPING FRONT CLIPS & FRAMES. * (Not shouting, just to get your attention). The bodies from the firewall back are still the same, w/in each sub-category (coupe, bus/cpe, conv, 2dr, 4dr, L.C., etc).


    47->49 Champion wb: 112"
    50 Champion wb: 113"
    51->52 Champion wb: 115"

    47->49 Commander wb: 119"
    50 Commander wb: 120"
    51->52 Commander wb: 115"

    47->49 Land Cruiser wb: 123"
    50 Land Cruiser wb: 124"
    51-52 Land Cruiser wb: 119"

    HTH.

    Hey all. Spokane, WA here and I recently aquired the back-half of a body for a 1927 Stude Victoria Coupe. Real rough but I think real rare too. Any info, parts, advice, shoulder to cry on :), would be appreciated. Im basically starting from nothing with a big hill to climb. Would we want it any other way? :)
    hope to talk to you guys soon!
     
  20. not an real owner, but I found this '38 Stude Dictator steering wheel I am planning to use on my Model A after it is restored a bit. Anyone have horn button parts?

    Not really a stude owner but this is what powers my 33 Ford (only Stude owners know what this is). The SDC forum was a wealth of info.
