4A Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014 Feather River Bulletin Plumas County Museum's 1922 Studebaker is a long way away from being fully restored in this Jan. 21 photo taken at the Quincy High School auto shop. Wooden-rimmed wheels, a turn-crank ignition and many other old-fashioned features provide a challenging task for students involved in the restoration project. Photo by Laura Beaten The 1922 Studebaker is shown in 1937 in this photo submitted by the donor to the museum. Photo courtesy Plumas County Museum High school auto shop class to restore 1922 Studebaker wooden-rimmed wheels and a wooden rollbar. For students, it's a learning experience of a lifetime. For the museum, it's an opportunity to restore to working condition an antique vehicle at cost and add to its considerable inventory of fascinating and authentic history. As happened with Phil Bresciani's 1949 John Deere tractor, a number of community members stepped up to help students on the project. John Prinvale of John's Automotive Electric is trying to piece a jumbled box of parts together into functioning electrical components, while Quincy Auto Glass, NAPA Auto Parts and Plumas Motor Supply are contributing in various ways to the restoration efforts. Down the line, John Froggatt will reupholster the seats, convertible top and other features. It's too soon to say when the Studebaker, manufactured as a seven-passenger sedan and modified into a pickup truck by the original owner around 1940, will drive out of the QHS auto shop. But students are confident that they can complete the project, maybe even by the end of this school year. For more information or to donate to the project, contact Randy Kelsch at rkelsch@ Laura Beaten Staff Writer After reading about the successful restoration of a 1949 "Johnny Pops" tractor by the Quincy High School auto shop last year, Plumas County Museum Director ScottLawson decided to see if a 1922 Studebaker that was donated to the museum could receive a makeover as well. Instructor Randy Kelsch said, "Why not?" and students are already hard at work on their latest restoration project. This year the team of students has a double period in which to work on auto shop projects. Students said the increased time allotment allows them to get much more work done: At their class Jan. 21, students said they've been taking things apart, ordering replacement parts, putting the pieces back together, testing them, and trying different parts until they get the piece working the way it's supposed to. There's lots of waiting involved, so the students keep busy doing whatever they can to repair, replace and spruce up items on the Studebaker. Some of its more unusual features include a flathead straight six-cylinder engine that has a hand-crank and electric ignition, an aluminum head, a battery with a positive ground, FE&THE ,V E R Postal Serce: USPS (No. 188-550.)
