Kincaid-Webber was the dealership that all my parents and grandparents Studebakers were purchased.

Thank you John, you add so much to the forum.

This is a beautiful truck, and the seller was a kind man.

Two questions for the forum:

1. Does anyone know what the "ceramic" upgrade is on the sales order?

2. Has anyone seen another truck with this dealer installed windshield washing system?

Thanks to all,

James Howell

Do you still have to remove the cotter pins that hold up the back of the seat to get at your stuff?

not come up with a good alternative solution, yet. I think the only way to solve this is to install hinges where the seat back bottom hooks slip into the seat bottom then some latches at the top to replace the pins.

Is it possible that the 'ceramic' may have been some type of paint treatment that the dealers did?

So many possibilities! Searched for any mention of 'Ceramic' in any of my Stude literature, nothing found.
I also thought it could possibly be the name of a paint treatment. In the '50s it was sold as 'Porcelainizing'.
Another thought is the ceramic fuel filter element that fits in the glass bowl of the fuel pump. I didn't see a Stude part number for a filter in 1947, so maybe that was something the dealer bought locally.
