    No, and I know that you are kidding. The original owner, that I purchased it from, was a secretary at IBM as well as a family friend. I purchased it in conversation at a dinner at the Elk's Club.

        The PK325 would indicate that the engine is a 289, built on October 25, 1963.

          Ok, if that is true, to get the Engine revving as high as you seem to indicate, you would have to have it in Second Gear (2) unless the trans. does not shift to High when in "D".

          Your information indicates it is a year model '64 289 engine with optional stock Carter AFB 4 Barrel. Ordered this way, this was a pretty HOT car for it's time. Does it also have Dual Exhausts?

          The Distributor and Alternator are stock, I have Solid State Voltage Regulators that LOOK like the original mechanical points type, you probably have, in stock for sale.

          When you order the Production order for this Car from the Studebaker National Museum, I think you will find it is as ordered, all stock, nothing weird about it, except possibly special ordered by the original owner.
