I am preparing detailed information about Studebaker Dictator's manufacture from 1927 to 1937. I have Fox and Cannon's book "Studebaker the Complete Story" and Crestlines "Studebaker Cars" by James H. Moloney. Neither book gives a Start Date (Month) or End Data (Month) for these models. If anyone has any information that can help me, please post it here. I also am wondering if there was any actual production performed while Studebaker was in receivership starting March 18th, 1933?

I have all of that data. In fact just two weeks ago I completed an article covering all the 1927-37 Dictators. It runs about 6000 words and 12 pages with a few dozen photos. Still had to do a lot of cutting to fit their space limitations. Scheduled for August issue of Collectible Automobile (out in mid June sometime). Yes production continued throughout the period Studebaker was in receivership. I have month by month production figures for all models from 1902 thru 1964. What is your particular interest?

I am looking forward to your article. I am very much interested in the total production for each Dictator model if you are willing to share that with me. I am also interested in the starting and ending dates of production for each model. Cannon provided the start/stop dates up through 1930, then nothing, making me wonder if Studebaker began to adhere to model year's starting in 1931? If it's easier, you can email me at jrj9871@aol.com
