Queensland was founded in 2003 when I began buying out the parts stocks
of various Studebaker collectors from around Brisbane.
In 2004 we made our
first trip to the US, buying up parts from all over the country.
In 2005 I
purchased a large stock of Studebaker truck parts from a Sydney club
In 2009 I
imported the largest ever order of N.O.S. panels from the former SASCO
(Studebaker Autoparts Sales Corporation) into Australia just before
there business closed.
Queensland officially became a full time business in April 2010 and this
website was launched shortly after. Further stock was imported
from the US in 2010 and 2011.
Another trip to
the US in 2012 resulted in three rare cars and 12 pallets of rare parts
being imported. This included a large quantity of N.O.S. upholstery and
high performance engine parts.
We now have over
7000 part numbers in stock and are determined to provide the best
quality of parts, service and advice in the industry.
Many of you will already be
aware of the new company that we formed in March 2014 with the goal of
providing a greatly expanded range of Studebaker parts, restoration
supplies and general servicing items, including a full range of oils,
lubricants, coolant and sealants for your vehicle.
In May we opened a new retail store in Brisbane, the first of its type
Here you will find a huge
range of parts and accessories on display. Everything from rare factory
accessories, disc brake kits, chrome parts, model cars, carpet kits and
In November we purchased Ian Mackellars former Studebaker parts business
in Melbourne. This massive inventory includes complete Avanti engines,
power steering kits, tooling, N.O.S. panels and the rights to
manufacture a full range of windscreens, two 20ft shipping containers
In the months ahead, we will be sorting through this new inventory and
adding new part numbers and regular updates to our website and ‘Parts
Specials’ will continue to be advertised in Stude News.
We are also looking to manufacture a greater number of parts locally. In
addition to windscreens, we can also supply sway bars, engine mounts,
transmission mounts, flex plates and some lenses, all made here in
2015 is going to be a great year for Studebaker owners and we hope to
meet many more of you in our Brisbane store or at the upcoming Wagga
Wagga National Meet this Easter.
