Below are some Studebaker body tags. The first one came off of my 63 Lark parts car. The little auxiliary tag that usually designates an option just says XX. Does anyone know what that means? The only answer I have ever gotten was that it was built for a porn star :D

The next tag came off of an early 55 President Deluxe sedan. I don't know why they made these President Deluxe sedans, but I don't think they sold very many of them. It was the long wheelbase sedan with low line trim. They evidently had to put the tag that says "Y4 only". to keep the assembly line guys from putting the President trim on it.

The other tags are self explanatory. Does anyone have some other interesting tags?

Mr. Biggs is the tag collector. Lets wait for him to get back from picking tomatoes for dinner and see how he responds.

Yeah. Got the tomatoes picked and I'm here to say that except the ones that are self-explanatory (4-speed, auto flr shft, air cond), I don't know what some of the codes like XX mean! I sure wish I did.

i'm not gonna hunt them up to photograph, but I've got some like this - "G" and "SPEC QTR" The G was a seperate tag on a nondescript-looking '61 Lark VI sedan. The SPEC QTR was on a '64 Commander 2dr that looked like any ol' '64. Dick Quinn looked into the PO for that '64 and there was nothing to indicate what that addendum tag meant.[B)]

I've also got 4-speed, AIRCOND, HADES (for a Hades heater installation), C3 TWOTONE and PWR WIND.

I'd really like to know the what and why of the tags like the XX and the G. They must've had some significance. Of course, those addendum tags COULD HAVE been added AFTER the tubs were pulled from stock to build a car that was scheduled. They may have been nothing more than a way of reminding the assy line that this particular example was to get fitted a certain way.:)

I was told the xx was a package designed for moonshiners; heavy-gauge trunk ,helper springs, taillights on a separate switch, and special FOM designed to shift from Reverse to Forward at 50 MPH (for those "bootlegger's 180s").

No; Studebaker was on limited resources; they could only afford 2 Xs per car...

The basis for the name for the FOM was rooted in the word, "flee"- as in fleeing from them revenooers ;)

Always a pleasure to help with the clarifying of Studebaker history.

The other tags are self explanatory. Does anyone have some other interesting tags?

The most interesting body tag I've read about is the one in the 1956 'J' newletter that is on a Golden Hawk. It reads 'W G KNEGHT' who was a Studebaker quality control engineer. Probably the only Stuebaker that was literally 'tagged' for someone. I have seen 'SPEEDSTER', and one on a '65 Commander that reads 'EXT TRM' which was for rocker panel moldings that was standard on a Cruiser. A mysterious one I have seen was on a '66 Commander that has 'B/U/L' after the body number. The only guess I have is 'Busness/Utility/Lease' denoting a fleet/rental car as it was rather plain. I can't say I've ever seen the 'XX' one before.

I did think of that as they were an option, and the 1966 models would had to have the extra holes stamped in the back panel to accomodate them. But I have seen several '66's with backup lights (including my own), and '63 & newer Wagonaires, and none have the 'B/U/L' body tag like this one had. It is a possibility it was a very early '66, and the workers in the plant needed to be 'reminded' for a short time of the extra stampings since it was the first sedan models since 1961 that required it for back-up lights.

Wonder if it had louvres or slots punched in the inner fenders to aid engine cooling. Was it sold new in the southern states, more particularly in a desert area like Arizona?

Here's a tag on a '63 Daytona HT Skytop.

I've also seen "4 speed" tags on a few '61 Hawks and some Daytonas.

I, and others, have always referred to these add on tags as streamers. I have seen many variations, but the "XX" is a new one to me. In the early '70s, the City of South Bend was pulling many abandoned Studebakers off the streets and selling them at auction. Many of the '60s cars had streamers. They usually said things like "spec sills" or "spec qtr". I believe that these referred to special sills or special quarters that were on the car. They probably were testing some variation, maybe corrosion/rust prevention, on a group of cars that they could follow, like those owned by employees. There were also streamers on some of these cars for special or unusual options/equipment. I saw a higher percentage of cars with streamers in South Bend than anywhere else. Of course, these Studebakers have been moved all around the country by now. Studebaker was not consistent with these streamers. For example, some Skytops had a "sun roof" streamer and some didn't, the same for "4 spd", etc.

That's one way of proving a Speedster as the rear deal! [8D]

heres one i had i wanted to share. This is a 66 wagonaire that needs everything, but is available for the taking in WA. I have a phone number.[img]

Read my post above. Now that will be #2 I've seen/heard about with that same B/U/L on a '66. The other one was on a Commander 4 door; in same Niagra Blue Mist metallic color I might add.

It was suggested this means Back Up Lights. With this car being a WAGON, this supports that theory.;)


Do you have access to the serial number? I bet its an early one with that tag on it. My late model '66 Commander sedan has back up lights, but no extra tags of any kind.
