    289 Stude = small bore/long stroke
    289 Ford = big bore/short stroke

    Studebaker shut down all production in South Bend in 1964.
    Cars built in Hamilton, Ontario used the Indiana built 289's until they ran out, and then used a 'McKinnon' engine (Chevrolet small block) until the end of Canadian production...

    OK - So I'm going to show just how green I am to Studebakers, but could someone please tell me the real story behind the Studebaker not making their own engines story? I'd like to be able to intelegently dispute the guys at the local car cruise.

      Thanks, I was fairly certain that Stude made their own engines, but the Chevrolet engines for the last 2 years threw me.

              I put the Cruiser in a little regional car show last weekend. I was walking around looking at the cars and I stopped to talk to the owner of a black 57 Chevy 2-door post. Nice car, but it came out of the box (all Danchuk parts). I talked to the owner a bit and he asked me if I had a car in the show. I said "yeah, the blue Studebaker". He said "what Studebaker?" I said, "the one next to the Firebird ragtop". He said "really, I thought that was a Valiant".

                  I bet for every one of those old Valiants you see one the road now, you'll see ten Studebakers!

                      Maybe, but not around here. Studebaker's are as rare as hen's teeth. In a solid year of driving mine daily, never seen another Studebaker on the road

                          I was recently told by someone that their uncle had a Ford Studebaker years ago...

                          I remember when I was a kid, my father being told by this guy that he had a Lincoln Imperial... my father's reply was, "Those are really rare, can I come and see it?"

                              I know that both of those examples are not real cars, but names can be confusing sometimes. I owned an Imperial that was not a Chrysler Imperial and I rode in a 1934(?) V-16 Cadillac Imperial sedan (they made one that year).
