Seat hinge covers

Postby Mainstreetprod » 2023 Oct 03 Tue 6:27 pm

Looking for a pair of the sheet metal covers that hide the hinges on the front bench seat. Looks like sedans may have the same ones?

I'll check the seat in my...well...not so good, wagon tomorrow !

They WON'T be in very good condition, but should be rebuildable.

Sorry, no covers on my basket case, and my other two cars have aftermarket bucket seats.

Thanks for checking! Going to South Bend tomorrow to pick up what seems to be the only repairable sedan hood in the country (mine is damaged from flying up). The guy's buddy had 750,000 NOS and other Studebaker parts and is checking to see if he has any of the ones I'm looking for. Might as well list them here too ('54 Conestoga):

Passenger window
Seat hinge covers
headliner bows (even if sedan)
front bumper
pot metal pieces either side of wipers and in middle
Chrome ring around gold V-8 on front fender
Wiper arms
Conestoga emblem (guy mentioned above thinks he has one!)
Grille bars
Commander plane hood ornament

If you need anything, let me know and I'll run it by him.

Any headliner bows on the basket case? Mine has been installed with no bows and is sagging about 6"

Don't think so, but I'll look.

How many do you need ? My four door has it's full complement of bows. Much of the four door's roof is the same dimensions as the wagon. It's never going to get a new headliner !

However many you have would help, I don't think there are any at all now. Just let me know what you want with shipping to 37172
