From some of the 1938 literature you've provided to me I know the dealer had to purchase banners for the 1938 Cars but I've never seen any literature on banners for the later years - did a dealer have to order and pay for a 1964 GT banner? If the dealer had to pay for it do you have any idea what the cost was? Based on what I've served, I would think that there are more 1964 GT's surviving than banners but considering the low production of 1964 GT I wonder how many banners were produced vs the number of cars. I see this banners is paper - what was the last year for fabric banners? As usual thanks for the interesting Studebaker material.

The last year for the silk type banners was 1963. Generally the showroom dress-up kits were forwarded to dealers and the cost was added to their parts account. I believe this practice was continued from the 30s thru the 60s. I do have documentation on this.
