    Welcome to the SDC and to the SDC Forum Edwin (Commander) !

    You will need to order the Production Order from the Studebaker National Museum to get any more info than; it is a Canadian Built 1966 year model Six Cylinder Studebaker from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

    The First '66 6 Cyl. was C130001, so yours is 3,794 from the First.

    Here is the Page on their Website for that:

      Your car was built the first week of February, 1966. Go to the home page & look at the 1966 registry (under "resources" & registries) to see where your's falls into the list.

      Send me your info & I'll add your car to the list. Once you look at the registry you'll know what info I'm looking for. If you order the build sheet for your car thru the museum, it will tell exactly which day it was built & what options were included.
      thanks,

        My 1966 Commander (aka Moby Grape) is C133783 with a build date of February, 14 1966. Your car, being only 12 numbers greater would possibly be the same day, or the next day, February, 15th.

          Judging from the door jam it almost looks like original paint, but I can't find a red that looks like that offered in 1966. Is this a late production color addition??

            Yes, your car is also a Spring color, "Highlander Red".

              This is a trunk photo. Original spare is in there.

                Is the paint color label still attached to the underside of the glove compartment? I would also check there.

                  I know this car. It's from Chicago originally, now in Ontario. 194 McKinnon supplied SkyBolt 6 cylinder with 3 speed column shift and overdrive. Tried to buy it 4 years ago.
