    Look at Ebay 290318797765
    John Poulos has a nice 289 for sale

      The bolt pattern for Studebaker wheels is the same as full sized Ford, Mopar or American Motors.

      Look at the S.D.C. home page for information on Chapters in your area, contact them for parts information. Much easier and probably cheaper than shipping.

      I don't know what engines Daytonas used.

        Got a decent 289 and 4 speed setup that I'd sell, but I'm in Georgia.

          I believe that the 259 cubic inch engine was the standard V8 for 1962 Daytonas. The 289 cubic inch V8 was optional (on Cruiser and Daytona).

              Chuck Collins, (Studebaker parts vendor)in Phoenix had a 289 engine for sale last I knew. Contact me through my profile if you want his phone number or e-mail address. He is also listed in the parts vendor section on this website. I don't like to publicize phone numbers on line. There are several folks in Arizona that have parts,best to join an SDC Chapter if you haven't and network with members.
