    I woulda thought "TRANSAT", or "TRANSOD" would have been better. but maybe not.

    The Studebaker part catalogs also show one-word codes for common phrases for dealers to use in the front couple of pages when corresponding via telegram for inquires regarding shipping and availability, etc.

    Sample of telegraph message from Studebaker to Ohio dealer in 1950 showing use of the code words.

    Specific to your inquiry the "Corsair" is a 1951 Land Cruiser with overdrive transmission. A "Cutter" is a Land Cruiser with Automatic Transmission.

    Thanks Richard. That solves the mystery. My has an automatic and the other one has an OD transmission.
    Cheers,
    Jim

    "Cutter" and "Corsair" look like codes used in telegrams to replace longer sentences, or to indicate particular information about the car or shipping. The parts catalogue for your car may have a page near the front which de-codes the words.

    Build Sheet question regarding 51 Land Cruisers

    The build sheet for my 51 Land Cruiser indicates the 'MODEL AND BODY TYPE' as H-Y5 CUTTER. I have seen a build sheet for another 51 LC indicated as H-Y5 CORSAIR. I know the H is Commander, Y5 means Land Cruiser, but what do the 'CUTTER' and 'CORSAIR' suffixes indicate?

    Thanks,

    Jim
