    Money may not buy happiness, but it's more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle.

    Thanks. Quite a few Studebaker references!

      WOW! Where to start?
      With a first glance at a '32 Model 65 or '33 Model 10, you'll notice the leading curvature of the front fenders; I think this difference probably applied to all Studebaker models.

      The pigtails from the headlights in the '32 were routed in to the grill shell, while the '33 had them threaded through the mounting base and under the fenders. (If you see a Rockne grill shell for sale you can identify the year by how many holes are in it.)
      The '32 wheels were 18", while the '33 wheels were 17", giving the '33 a lower, leaner and more elegant stance.
      While both the '32 and '33 had the same displacement, the '33 had increased horsepower from 66 to 70; though I've no clue how that was accomplished.

      The tail light license illumination lens in '32 said Rockne, while the '33, like the grill badge, said Studebaker Rockne.
