63V-29789 is a very special '63 GT Hawk. Here is the information from the production order:

Body No. 3229, Final Assembly on 4/30/63, engine No. JTS-1614, color: SUPER RED, Red Vinyl interior, Automatic Floor Shift, power steering, undercoating, R2 High Performance Package, white sidewalls, Climatizer, electric washers, front bumper guards, pushbutton radio, front seat belts.

My research in the production records shows that only 99 Super Red Studebakers were made in the 1963 model year. While this was not the least common color in 1963 with an Avanti engine (for example, only two Avanti-powered '63s were painted Sea Beach Sand), Super Red was supposedly only for '63s with the High Performance Package (there were a couple of exceptions). So the combination of Avanti engine with High Perf Pkg and Super Red is among the most desirable '63 Studebakers.
