If you are referring to the engine number of a Studebaker V8, it means that it is a 1957 car 289 cid OHV V8.

It means it is a 289 cubic inch V8 from a 1957 President or Silver Hawk built in South Bend. :) BP

Silver Hawks in 57 with a 289 had the checker flag emblems on the front fenders, those without a 289 did not have them
