Horn Button - W3 - Studebaker Champion - 1950 - Clocks

Many thanks to Leonard Shepherd and Mr. Biggs on the SDC forum for their insight regarding the horn button on my 1950 Studebaker Champion.

It appears that the horn button on our Champ is not native to the car, a 1950 Studebaker Champion DeLuxe. Mr. Biggs states "That button is proper for '47 and '48 cars touting Deluxe or Regal Deluxe trim. Part# 523103. Your car should have the pretty red button that bears the Studebaker Crest design. Part# 526359. You've got the right ring for a '50, but it's gotten an earlier emblem installed in it somewhere along the way."

As a side note, all interior clocks were optional on all Studebaker Champion models.

1950 Studebaker Truck Restoration

There is a nice restoration of a 1950 Studebaker truck on the Route 66 Restoration website. Quote:

"This truck fell victim to some neglected and aged wiring within the distributor which left things a bit crispy. We re-wired the ignition system, tweaked a few things and the owner was back on the road enjoying his rare and eye-catching truck that turns heads wherever it goes."

See the full article on Route 66 Restorations' website.

1963 Studebaker Lark and Avanti Commercial

This one has speed; this one has interior room (for your hat); this one is juuuuust right!

It's criminal that disc brakes weren't standard on all cars starting on the date of their invention.
