  • 53 Champion VIN??

    I am selling my 53 champion built in Los Angeles. The sales agent says the engine number and title don't match because my title has two number '1' in the stamp and the engine number shows these as 'I'. Please tell me if these are identical or not.

      Yes, this has been documented here on the SDC Forum and also in Turning Wheels (I do not remember the issue).

        See Post #6 in this thread.
        There is a discussion somewhere about the use of the letter I used for 1.
        This blueprint and the discussion should be on the Tech tips page, the subject comes up often enough.

            I believe that the Studebaker Chassis and the Body Parts Catalogs do make this clear, in case a DMV person questions it, and they ALWAYS do.

                So far, any reference to serial numbers I've found call out the number 1.
