Not mine. Not the Studebaker specific box, but I imagine the company that produced this item was not exclusive to Studebaker. I recall there was a discussion about approved vendors that Studebaker used and marked packaging as approved by.

Non Factory installed units sold by Stude. Dealers very well could have came in Draw-Matic Boxes with the Studebaker Part Number sticker on the Box End, which is missing from this box. :!: A very COOL Accessory!

I sold several of these years ago. I'm pretty sure they were in Studebaker boxes.

Agreed, there is one here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1950-1951-1952-Studebaker-Drawmatic-Cigarette-Lighter-AC-1899-Rare-Accessory-NOS-/112559409438?epid=1425302493&hash=item1a3510491e:g:amcAAOSwH4NZfloH&vxp=mtr

I was just suggesting that if one were to be looking for these accessories, they could very well search for the non Studebaker-specific accessorize box. If one is clever enough they can save themselves some $$$ in the process if having the original Studebaker box is not necessary. I have managed to find several accessories this way. Same part, different packaging where it seems that packaging justifies the extra money.
