I am sure it COULD make a slight difference in the Color/shade of Beige of '64 Wheels depending on whether they had the (more Disc brake clearance) Kelsey Hayes "double hump" Wheels or the smoother, better looking Budd Disc Brake Wheels, but all South Bend '64's I have seen and owned (8) had Almond Beige Wheels.

The Canadian Built late '64's had White Wheels like '65 & '66's.
Did I examine all the wheels on every '64 ever built? Certainly not.

Here is just ONE of many Posts on '62 to early '64 (South Bend) Beige Wheels.

Only the 1963 disk brake car wheels had the groove for disk brake caliper clearance.
All the 1964 wheels (except maybe the Avanti?) were designed to clear the disk brake calipers.
The Avanti had wider wheels and some had the groove. I am not an expert on this!
Did anyone ever do a comprehensive article on the Studebaker wheels used?

I have owned at least seven 1964 model Studebakers with original wheels and none of the wheels were bright white (at least six of them were South Bend cars).
