I took the passenger door panel off to R&R new regulator yesterday,on my twice door 66 Daytona, and found a small ball pean hammer on the bottom pan. Door had never been into as it had all of the factory hole coverings, so figured that Hamilton,Ont. had same problem as South Bend. When whistle blows we're outa here. Hammer head was crusted with rust, handle was really dried out, but useable. Gonna do the drivers side tonight, can't wait to see what's in that door cavity. I do think that Hamilton used much much more undercoating than SB. Inside of outer door skin was wiped top to bottom.
Thanks, will keep ya posted on my adventures "66".

Remember, removing the hammer ruins the originality. Put the hammer back when you're done [:o)].

You just solved a 40 year old mystery for some guy on the 1966 production line, when the next car down the line, he said to himself, "where the heck did I put that darned hammer"....

Chrysler had the same problem. My neighbor owned a 1965 Chrysler 4 door sedan since brand new. In 1968, he removed the backrest of the rear seat to install a rear speaker, and came across a tack hammer with "Property of C.C." branded in the wooden handle. In this case, it was a source of unwanted noise; every time he hit a good sized bump in the road, or a railway tracks, he got a solid "clunk-clunk" from the rear end. The Chrysler dealer he bought the car from up until that time had replaced almost everything there was to replace UNDER the car. The neighbor did mention the dealer had the rear seat bottom removed, but only when the backrest did he discover his source of irritation!!

When I pulled up the carpet on my original PACKARD HAWK in 1987 I
found a rusty pair of needle nose pliers that had S/C (Studebaker Corp.?)stamped on the handle,I wish I could remember what I did with them.

When I lifted the cab of my '48 M5 truck from the frame, I found a 1946 dime under the rubber pad of the rear body mount. What were the chances that anyone would ever look under the body mount? Why did the production line guy put it there - for luck?

When I bought my Hamilton Cruiser a few years ago, upon inspection I found a rust hole in the bottom edge of the left rear door. You couldn't see any rust from the outside--only when you were laying on the ground under the door. It was the only door with that problem. So, I took the door apart and was going to fix the hole with fiberglass cloth and POR 15. When I opened the door, it had never been taken apart since it left the factory. The factory paper was still in place.

Anyway, lying in the bottom of the door was a large red rag--the kind like you'd find in a factory. It was completely rotten and soaking wet which is what caused the rust. I can only figure it was left in there from the factory.

I never thought about auctioning a genuine Studebaker rag on Ebay[}:)]

BTW, my doors also are completely wiped with undercoating on the inside. Looks like they put on on with a screed.

Well, disappointment came to me last evening. There were no treasures in the door cavity of the driver's side door. Oh Pooh!
I don't have a digital camera to enable me to post pics of the hammer, but the handle has a an "N" carved into the butt end of handle. The wood handle is really dried out. I haven thought about selling it, but have considered using it as a trunk display item when I get the car in better shape, insure, tagged and on the road. I'm gonna drive it like it is this season,hoping I'll be able to take it apart next winter to paint and do interior. Based on everything I've have uncovered in and on the car, tells me the 51k mile reading is correct. I got the build sheet last week and thrilled to discover that it has it's factory 230 "6". Was shipped to Indy, Ind.
If anyone has or has a lead on a bargain single exhaust for it, I'd be beholden to ya. Folk aroud here want 175.00to 250.00 for a single pipe system. 3 pieces and hangers.
Thanks for letting me share,
Kim

YEP--'86. VERY rare bird. '86 was the last year, I understand. Has one o' those FoMoCo 289s in it. Old farmer bought it right off the showroom floor. Lotsa folks THINK the last year was '69 because that was when they started makin' them Avanis with the turbocharged engine. But that's another story.

Well DUH! I really meant '64. Gotta watch those flyin' fingers next time!
