Are you able to post a pic. That would help us advise you where to go and info on the model. Later models were on the inside post of the drivers door between the hinges.

The body tag on the passenger side firewall will tell you year and model. Forward it here for more information

Technicaly, Studebaker did not have a "VIN" number, but either the engine number or the serial number was used as a vehicle identification number.

Post the body plate numbers (on engine side of cowl), serial number (for most years, somewhere on the driver's door frame) and/or the engine number and we will be able to tell you a lot about the car. I realize that I assumed a car and you didn't state that. If it is a truck, you will probably find an identification plate on the driver's seat riser.

On 1965 & 1966 models, the term, "Vehicle Identification Number" was used.

I guess that I should have used a qualifier of "US built".
