Our molded panels are made of .093 abs plastic. We custom mold them on our own vacuum forming machine. They come pre cut to fit your doors, quarters, kicks etc. the edges are beveled where needed so they don’t interfere with the jambs and windlace. Because they are custom built for each order, there is no end to the number of designs available. Once we were asked to make an Indian head and an eagle profile for some non Studebaker customers.
Although the panels are meant t be covered, an uncovered panel can be dyed with plastic/vinyl dye. The red "tuck and roll" style below is painted with vinyl dye and carpet is added to the bottom.
There are about ten different arm rest that can be molded directly to the panels. In most cases it is best to cover them separately and then attach them to the panels.
We have four sizes of flames, three sizes of scallops, simulated tuck and roll, different lazy "S" designs and many geometric variations. We can shape your panels to meet your dash, and also put speaker pods in kicks, panels, rear quarters and console.

The Electric Car
Thomas Edison, purchased the second electric car produced by Studebaker. Studebaker eased their way into the automobile market after the turn of the century, introducing an electric car in 1902. Gasoline-powered Studebakers came in 1904, produced by the Garford Company in Ohio, marketed under the name Studebaker-Garford.
In 1911, Studebaker would join forces with Everitt-Metzker-Flanders Company of Detroit to form the Studebaker Corporation. Studebaker sold automobiles under the EMF and Flanders names until 1913; from thereafter, all new cars carried the Studebaker name. Studebaker was still producing wagons, and would do so until 1920, at which time automobile production was moved from Detroit to South Bend.
