Does anyone know when in 1962 that Studebaker changed the wording from Studebaker-Packard to Studebaker Corporation on their VIN plates? Thanks Weymouth

Studebaker-Packard ceased to exist following stockholder approval after the April 26,1962 Board Meeting.
This means that it would be late in the 1962 model year, if at all, that the Serial Number plates wee changed.
Perhaps some can chime in with known original S/N plates and their car's production dates to narrow this down.

Thank you for the reply. So probably nothing was charged until the 1963 model year.
