    There were 166 1949 two door sedans made for export (not necessarily to Spanish speaking countries). I don't know why all are assuming Mexico. There are a LOT of other Spanish language countries. The build sheet should show where it was initially destined for.

    Actually, it could have been assembled in Mexico - or some other spanish-speaking country where there was a satellite assembly plant.

    You might have a rare one. If the Vin is in Spanish it's very possible it was made for Mexico. Where did you find it? If you have the Studebaker Vin send it to the Studebaker museum and see the history on it. It should be interesting.
