      Did you make the Black '64 R1 Fender Badge?

He commissioned Mike Meyer to build an R4 motor for this creation, and as close as it can be, that's what's still in the car.
        Nothing wrong with modifying an Ordinary, Common '61 Lark.

ID:	1851648 Bowdon converted his 1964 R1 Daytona into a R-4 and sold it. I stopped by in 2018 and he was converting his 62 Daytona R2 into a R3 because he enjoyed working with his hands. He grewup on a Farm and his Father had Studebakers. He has had the 62 since 1963.
          I wonder who has his 64?

            I have never seen fender emblems like these before. They are both like the 1964 Lark-type and Hawk fender emblems, but the colors are wrong (or my knowledge is deficient). AFAIK, the correct 1964 R1 & R2 oval emblems have a white background with red & blue in the circle. The correct 1964 R3 & R4 emblems also have a white background, but with black & silver in the circle. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

              That Black and Gray center R2 badge looks familiar, I think Jon Meyer (or someone) MIGHT have had one from Paxton Products, and possibly claimed it was intended for '64 Avantis but never happened, so unless those 2 are modified, they COULD both be Prototypes that never were sold.

                  I don't get it Rex, how is it that BOTH you and Padrechris have the Same style Black '64 Fender nameplates that for all practical purposes "DO NOT EXIST"?

                    I got most from an older gentleman years ago that got me into Studebaker cars. He told me it was a prototype emblem. He gave me all his emblems before he died.

                          A studebaker engineer named Bokon died and I got 4 different ones at his auction. Prototypes. They came in sets and I kept one each for my collection and sold the others on ebay.

                            IIRC, Bokon was the name of the family that was the focus of one of those 1950s feel-good Stude employee family documentaries?
