        Leonard - Thanks for the memory jogger (wow-35 years ago). I believe that is my 1963 blue mist metallic Daytona Wagonaire a few cars down from yours on the show field. I drove my wife's (Cathy) everyday Wagonaire, because I didn't quite have my 1953 Commander Starliner finished, but the '53 was driven to at least three other Indiana International Meets. Our Wagonaire was well equipped from the factory with 289, AT, ps, pdb, TT, step, StaBars, bucket seats and I added Studebaker air shocks. My monitor isn't good enough to tell, but that is probably me cleaning road debris off my car. I was a little younger then, but I am still glad that I am able to be active in SDC.

            I have a few more pictures of that meet. I don't have time to look for them now, but I will tonight and see if I can find more of your car.

                    I was at that meet too (driving the '64 Daytona Wagonaire). Bought a bunch of stuff at Standard Surplus (like NOS '64 steering wheel- $5.95, set of '66 full wheel covers- $9.95, a '53 Commander dry air cleaner with the element- $4.95, etc., etc. .... Hindsight being what is is...sigh.

                        I also brought home a Wagonaire full of parts on that trip for Studebakers that I owned at the time. I think that most of what I loaded in my Wagonaire was purchased at Hurwich Iron, not Standard Surplus. I remember taking NOS sheet metal out of the original boxes because I could nest more together in the Wagonaire that way.
