  • Production order

    Just received my PO for my lark , It looks pretty much correct except it says its a 4 door which it is not. Color, trim, options seem to match up. And destination states Redlands Ca , within 50 miles of where I bought it What is AC KIT 1331133? Thanks in advance Colin

    If this is a Cheaper Model Lark (Deluxe), that is likely the Stainless Windshield and Rear Glass Trim.

    Is it a F4 2 Door Sedan, it SHOULD say that.

        So the Typo is only on the Model "Description", not on the ACTUAL Model number build of the Car, which is what 'Built" it as a 2 Door.

        I believe the '59's may be "Transcribed" from the original so may be a Museum error.
        If not, it is a Factory Line-a-Type operator error.

            My Deluxe Lark (60) had the Regal dress up kit (W4 - four door sedan), so maybe that is what that kit is for on your 2dr.

              "F" is a two door. A four door would be a "W".

                When I received my production order for the 59 wagon it had a final assembly date of 1957. I contacted the museum & reported the error in which case they sent me a corrected version at no additional cost.

                  I also noticed there are no numbers in front of listed options.. like on 62champs PO says " 42 UNDERCOATING" mine just says UNDERCOATING. One of the few options it has says
                  DLX STEERING WHEEL
                  373 STEERING .
                  Also on champ62s it says 40 dry air cleaner..mine just states dry air cleaner..Did the museum not make an accurate copy?
                  Also under body # it says [ none listed ]

                    The 1959 and earlier Production Orders will NEVER look as good as the 1960 and Later ones. The form is completely different.

                    The '59 and earlier are stored on Microfiche, the Later ones are on Original Paper Forms in File.

                    This is why your '59 does not look like a '62.

                        I have no idea, you would have to ask the Museum if it is available on the Original or not, maybe since you Paid, they might look. I am sure some would have been just missed at the Factory.

                          The production order for my '59 Lark arrived with no body number also. Always thought it was just a copy error, possibly another reason?

                            About 15 years ago I ordered a PO for a GT. It was so disgustingly inaccurate that I never ordered another PO. The ones for 56J , researched by Frank A are very accurate. At least the 100 or so I have seen were.

                              I figure that was an error by the SNM. They seem to be having people that do not know Studebakers doing their work. Their work should be proofread before going out. The typist probably thought that the 4 in F4 meant a four door.

                              EDIT: They should provide you with a correct copy.
