  • Got my production order-have questions

    Yee har! My production order finally arrived (even though the museum didn't put what town I lived in!) She is a plain janer all right:

    63SF4 REGAL 6 2 DR SEDAN
    13 P6313 GREEN MIST
    14 432 GC <-Can anyone tell me what this means?
    19 FLIGHT O MATIC
    27 TINTED GLASS WINDSHIELD ONLY
    57 DLX STEERING WHEEL
    60 CLIMATIZER

    Can anyone tell me the base price for my Lark as well as the price for these options? What is the difference between the standard and deluxe steering wheel?

    It was built Feb 20, 63 and it's destination was Silverdale Pennsylvania (which would jive with the Palmyra Motors sticker in the glove box). It says ship via "TA BOLIN" Was this a carrier?

    Yep, I'm a geek- it's just like Christmas when stuff like this comes in the mail -even if this little Lark isn't a Loaded up R2 Daytona!

    The prices would be different for the US and Canada.

    The steering wheel itself is the same. It means you have a horn ring; not just the button type in the center.

                The base price in USD for US delivery was; $2055 and the base weight was 2665 pounds. The appropriate Turning Wheels with a Fred K. Fox feature article on 1963 sedans will give you much more information, probably including option prices.

                    I do not know about in the '60's, but at least in the early to mid '50's Bolin used Studebaker tractors to pull their car trailers.

                            Thanks for the replies guys. Would wheel covers be a standard feature on the Regal? I find it strange they aren't listed as an option.
