    Good find, Ray, I think that was a Delco light plant I saw in the back, so you can be assured he will buy it!!!
    There may be one of those gasoline powered Easy washing machines at the guys house, too.

    Those were the days.......

      I'd like to own a Studebaker from the late 20's or early 30's, but have no place to keep it unless I sell one of my A's.

      I would guess about 3400, but don't really know either. I'll try to Google the weight.

        What are those levers on the light switch? This car looks too complex for me to drive. Great shift knob, though.

          Probably spark, lights, and hand throttle or choke. As far as weight, here's what I found on Google:

          "The first design 1928 Dictator 4·door Sedan weighed 3,235 pounds and sold for $1.195."

            I have a Ross steering column with 3 brass levers at the horn button. Never have figured out what car it is off of. Levers are neat looking. Rod
            Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.

                When d.j. moordigians' Momma lived next door, I FUTXED with her '26 Studebaker, named, "ASTHMA"---
                HUGE CAR, with only 2 wheel brakes, oil pump driven off the BACK of the GENERATOR & a STRANGE 6 cylinder Firing Order!--It had a vacuum tank, to git the gas from the tank, 21 FEET BACK!---"ASHMA" still had her ORIGINAL Velour Upholstery & in decent shape.
                The car was SO TALL, Betty had to install a new type door, to get it in the CARRIAGE house, alongside her '66 PORSCHE!

                Betty & Dudley named her "ASTHMA" cuz she WHEEZED & COUGHED 'til she WARMED UP!

                  Once had an Old Studebaker steering wheel, couldn't find a car to put it on, SO, I gave it away!
