No shortage of information. What are you looking for? I assume the car is a model GE. If so is it a 1st design, 2nd design or 3rd design? Mechanics are the same on all but bodies are different.

Tag says GE 1 just interested in how many were built and how many (roughly) survive.

If it is a coupe the body # from the firewall should start with GE Q. The Dictator out sold all other Studebaker models in 1928 with 48,248 assembled between September 1927 and October 1928. There are no production figures available by body style. Since the coupe was the least expensive of all closed cars a good % of those would be coupes. You should really establish which design series it is. As far as how many have survived that is pretty much anyone's guess.
