  • Serial plate

    Build your own rare Studebaker (He has two styles) It would be cheaper to buy Bondo's decal and cut your own stainless piece. BTW, just kidding about faking a car.

    $185? If that thing sells, I'll buy a box of Bill's decals and a sheet of stainless tomorrow. [)]

        I sold a 63 Hawk last year that had a trunk full of 64 trim parts, a 64 body tag, serial plate and matching title from a scrapped car. Had I not have bought it, the PO would have made it a 1964 by now.

            We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                A guy in my chapter has a really nice '63 GT. He lost the body plate when he redone it. So, he took the plate off his '64 GT parts car, just to have something there. It was unbelievable at how many people would come up and tell him that his factory-correct '63 was actually a '64. [B)] He has since put on another '63 plate, however.

                    He wasn't even trying to increase the value, he just wanted a 64 and could not find one in nice shape. It does make you wonder how many cars have been done like that. More then one 55 has been made into a 53-54 I'd bet.

                        I have some of those blanks. Tony gave some of those along with the other stuff. I stuck one of them on my new under desk computer. Robin's computer has one on it also.

                        BTW. I finally found a source for decal paper again. So if you need to replace the black part of your ID plate let me know.

                            Bill, I am interested in one on my 53 I got some over spray on the tag and took some enamel thinner to clean it off and it took the black painted part of too. The numbers are still there though.
