  • New Car Window (Monroney) Stickers

    Does anyone know of a source for either NOS or repro Studebaker factory new car window (Monroney) stickers/lables? I need a blank for the 1962 model year. My original is very rough & I'd like to recreate it. Thanks.

        Richard did mine for the Avanti, using the build sheet, and it came out great. Well worth it.

          Richard, My Avanti's original window sticker doesn't look anything at all like Jim's - mine is very plain and without all the Avanti exciting Features. Was it up to the dealer which one they used, were the dealers charged extra for the fancy version and not for the plain version? Mine is 63R 3565 if there was a vin/date cutoff for a change in window stickers. the font on Jim's window sticker looks a little compressed. Interestingly mine is within $18 of Jim's - although the options are different and mine was socked $135 for distribution and delivery to Sunset Motor Imports in San Diego. While I'm at it, any idea on my original whitewall tire brand with a code 55?

          Thanks, Thomas

            Thomas;

            The window price sticker I used for Jim's Avanti is one I made up myself. I generally give owners a option of using one of the two original styles (1963 or 1964) or one similar to Jims (I also have one I made up for the '64 Avanti).

            Regarding the cost of shipping, Jim's Avanti went to Minnesota yours went to California. Studebaker had a set amount per mile that they charged and California is further from South Bend than Minnesota, therefore the price difference.

            Below the more conventional '63 Avanti WPS. Could also post a '64 if interested.

              Richard, at the risk of opening a can of worms, would a car have had a window sticker if it was "sold" to another division? Would this apply if there was an Appropriation Order?

                Thanks Richard.
                What is left of my original window sticker most closely resembles the third version you posted. It is the plainer blue, white & gray style. For purposes of duplication, shall I simply send you a copy of the original which contains all the pertinent information?

                  Andy; Yes I believe so. All cars had to be sold thru a dealer for warranty work and accounting purposes so they would have had a price sticker.

                  Christof; Yes, that would be the easiest and best to assure accuracy.

                    Richard, your version of the window sticker is what it should have been - its really good looking.

                    I guess the equalized shipping charges didn't come until later, makes sense that mine would have more shipping charges.

                        Richard, since my Avanti was shipped to Paxton, (Shipper says "TAG A Granatelli or S.H. Egbert") do you have any idea what dealer name would have been written in?

                        R2Andy

                        And it's too bad the factorys Avanti window stickers weren't any thing special. Yours are much more befitting the special nature of the car.

                          My thinking was that since I didn't have the original, using Richard's "pretty" version would remove temptation for someone in the future trying to pass it off as original, plus it's much more attractive. I also got the dealer sales order from Richard and left the invoice number from the copy alone. That means it doesn't match the build sheet, again, same reasoning. To the normal car show folks they look great, but for folks asking questions, I'm very up front that they are reproductions used for "flavor" only, not authentication. The build sheet as provided by the museum, of course, is a different document.

                            R2Andy; That is a tough one and I really cannot answer it with certainty. If Paxton was doing some special work in preparation for a retail sale I would guess that it would have had a WPS (albeit maybe "revised."). If it was to be actually used by Paxton (i.e. Granatelli or other personnel)) for testing or as a personal car then maybe not. What is the serial number of the car?

                              Maybe I should have mentioned that I have hundreds of original window price stickers acquired from numerous dealers over the years. Many dealers would remove them and place them into files with the other paperwork on the sale of the car. It was a good way to retain the original information and quite often the cars would come back for a trade-in and the stickers might come in handy in a resale.

                              When replicating the window price stickers I use these originals to accurately determine the price of options/accessories, and to assure the same or similar font style and other details. The only thing that might not be 100% accurate would be the vehicles shipping cost and I can usually estimate that very close based on the destinations for which I have confirmation.

                              The 1959-66 forms I use are "as original" except for some of the Avanti and GT Hawk special order forms mentioned in the previous posts above. However, I also have window price sticker forms that I have created going back to 1931. Each one is different but has "period style" graphics. Below are a few more samples. If anyone would like to see other years just let me know.
